    CJ's & The Lucky Diner Engage in a Belltown Breakfast Bland-Off

    Uptown, Downtown or Down Home: Downtown done with 50's flair. This location still looks and feels very "new" with gleaming counters and immaculate bathrooms.

    Bubbles, Bloodies or Black Coffee: The coffee is Tony's Organic, Shade Grown, Fair Trade Coffee ($2.75). The Bubbles, J. Roget, and vodka or hard liquor of any kind is not on the menu at Lucky Diner. They do, however, specialize in "grown-up" milkshakes-- so if your stomach can handle ice cream mixed with beer or wine, you'll be good to go.

    Hungover, Hooked-Up or Hanging with the Family: There is counter service and free WiFi for hungover and solo dining. Though none were present on my visit, it's perfectly kid friendly and their children's menu tops out at the $6 mark. On a weekday morning, the place was a quarter full of couples looking to, or as if they had recently, hooked up.

    What's Cooking: On the Hill your "Lucky" number is 8. In Belltown it's 7, as almost all of Lucky Diner's breakfast items are $7 between 7 and 9 am on weekday mornings. The Pot o'Gold (ham, bacon, braised greens, caramelized onion & provolone cheese.$9.95) was passable, but not perfect. The Joe's Spiked Salmon Scramble (blackened salmon, mushrooms, spinach, onions, Parmesan cheese, sour cream served with home fries and toast: $12.95) had nicely prepared veggies, and was much better.

    The diner boasts locally sourced ingredients and the aesthetics are pleasing, but they are still lacking that certain something special. For $7, though, it's nothing to complain about in an otherwise pricey Belltown.
