“My dad works down the block for the Seattle Times, so I’ve been coming here for a while. This is the best place to eat after 12, the eggs benedict is really good. They don’t care how turnt you are, as long as you’re not asleep.” -Joel Watanabe, 2:22 a.m.

“I heard about 13 coins through Yelp. I saw the old school good food and decided to check it out. Normally, I go to 5-point but I wanted something new. I like the vibe, the high back chairs are really cool, and you can see the chefs cooking. I was really impressed by the decor when I came in.” -Trent Dang, 2:32 a.m.

“This is my first time, I asked a police officer and he recommended this place. I ordered the steak and eggs and it’s pretty fucking good. 13 Coins is classy and the staff is really friendly. They even put my phone on a charger.” -Stephen Cruz, 3:05 a.m.

“I’ve been coming here for 13 or 14 year. I like that it’s open late. If your options are 13 Coins or Denny’s, probably want to hit 13 Coins.” -Josh, 2:37 a.m. “I like the ambiance, the space, the light, the open kitchen. They have a great menu.” -Anna, 2:39 a.m.

“We’re from Portland. I lived in Seattle for most of my life but I’be only been here one time after a concert in 2013 after my friends recommended it. After moving, I wanted to come back. In Portland, there’s not a lot of places open late, so I wanted to come back to the 13 Coins. It’s the only restaurant open late with quality food. This is definitely a god place to bring your friends after going out.” -Josh, 2:53 a.m. “This is my first time. I like the vibe and atmosphere. It’s different, I didn’t know what to expect. It’s nice if you’re willing to pay more, since you’re getting quality food.” -Scotty, 2:55 a.m.

“This is my first time at 13 Coins. I wanted fries and it was fancier than I was expecting. It’s totally a 1950’s style place where you can come in and get a steak and martini. The service was quick and friendly. Roll Tide!” - Megan from Alabama, 3:38 a.m.
