Upscale diner & bar - little sister to Damn the Weather

"Champagne Diner is so pretty inside, it’s like a dream. You know you’re in a diner here — the long counter with its swivel stools, the color-flecked tabletops, the dove-gray upholstered booths — but you don’t know exactly when or where. This isn’t 1950s reproduction, chrome-edged and jukebox-jangling with insistent nostalgia for a time best left behind. It doesn’t feel quite present-day, either; too spacious, too tasteful, calm, even. The room seems less Americana than subtly, futuristically Frenchified, with slender brass arms holding glass bar shelves and a flock of matching, stylized birds flying across the opposite wall."

-Bethany Jean Clement, Seattle Times food writer

Brynn was phenomenal. He somehow took on the job of 10 people, made it look effortless, put care and intention into every dish and drink and did it with a smile. He crafted an incredible experience and the food and drinks reflected that.

This space is beautifully designed. It’s quite the pop up location. The ambiance is fantastic. Truffle fries are excellent. Great use of seasonal ingredients such as the squash.

By far the best brunch I’ve had in Seattle! Delicious food, friendly staff, great presentation to food, and tasty cocktails. We had the lox Benedict and French toast. Definitely my new brunch spot!

We've been missing Sunday brunches since the COVID shutdown, so Champagne Diner was such a treat. Located in a small strip mall, we've probably driven past this place dozens of time without realizing it. Service was outstanding - super friendly waitstaff who went out of their way to allow us to move to a bigger table when we decided to order a feast for brunch. Food hit the spot. Restaurant is spacious with super high ceilings and right next to the train tracks. Highly suggest getting your brunch on here!

Wonderful brunch and amazing cocktails in such a fun (albeit unusual) spot. Service was excellent and the restaurant did a great job of making us feel comfortable dining during covid times! Will definitely be back for the amazing burger and fries, along with more of the cowboy cocktail. Thanks!

Such a fun place, this is "diner chic" with fun twists on old diner standards. And the cocktails are amazing, also fun twists on familiar drinks. Plus, it's hidden from the busy road so it feels like you're off the beaten path a little! The truffle fries were amazing!

I didn't personally like the lamb bacon as it was a little gamy but prepared wonderfully and the Benedict overall was an incredible dish - and if I liked lamb bacon and wasn't so narrow minded with pork bacon, this would have been the best Benedict I've had in a long time. I like that they take chances on unique ingredients and it really gives the menu an uplifting vibe and sense of exploration.

The service, especially considering what's going on, was fantastic.

This place was amazing. We got the fried chicken and biscuits. The chicken was crispy and juicy and the biscuits were soft and crumbly at the same time. My husband is from the south, and he loved this entree. The best part was the tasty sauce that they drizzle on top of the chicken and biscuit. We also had the breakfast sandwich. The combination of the runny egg and the brioche bun was soo good! Everything tasted fresh and well seasoned. We sat in their small patio outside where you can watch the train go by as you eat. It’s a great way to enjoy the weather on a sunny day. The meal wasn’t the best part about this place though, it was the service! The service was outstanding, and we could not have asked for better. I highly recommend visiting this place!

Enjoyed a nice, relaxed brunch. The food was tasty My only issue is that they made the chicken soup to fancy It had an odd taste Better to keep a classic simple but tasty

The food and the drinks were great. Bryn and Lisa were both really friendly and Bryn’s knowledge of liquor was helpful as we tried to remember the name of a cocktail we’d had in Brazil last summer; he knew it right away.
We also loved the space itself. Sitting on the patio by the trains was fun. I would definitely recommend Champagne Diner.

Came for brunch with a small group and Champagne diner outdid itself! Service was amazing, again! Food and drinks were out of this world. The California omlette was delicious and will be back for more watermelon mimosas!

Super tasty food and great modern atmosphere - being next to the railroad actually adds to the ambiance. Little in the pricier end but delicious and worth it.

Went for brunch and will be going for dinner soon!
Space was super pretty and unique. It was so cool to see all the trains go by. The design was really cute and a cozy space to be in. Whatever playlist they had on was so good!
The food was awesome- feta and watermelon salad super fresh and seasoned perfectly and the egg sandwich had hashbrowns on the sandwich = mind blown.

Bad and overpriced food. Soggy fries, weak drinks, fish and chips was bad — how can you mess up fish and chips? Even house pickles (jalapeños, carrots, cucumbers) was not good. Not returning!

This was a great find for Saturday brunch. We had the option to do mimosas by the bottle, which was nice. Food came out very fast and was very good. We both did the breakfast sandwiches, which were filling. The menu was limited, but that might be due to just reopening (I'm mentioning it, but I didn't feel it was a negative). The restaurant had patrons spaced out very well. I would definitely come here again.
