5 Spot

We were looking for a brunch spot and let our Seattle friends pick. They choose 5 Spot, an old school American diner that changes their menu theme every four months. The theme when we visited was New Orleans/southern food.


We dropped in on a Saturday (around 12:30pm) and it was busy. Lucky for us, we didn’t have to wait and were seated immediately. The inside is quite spacious and service is good. Our waiter was on the ball and continuously came by to refill waters.


The menu consists of all day breakfast (regional American plates, pan rumbles, breakfast specials, standards, bowls, cakes & waffles and not so early bird specials), all day (salads & soups, lunch specials, sandwiches) and beverages. Click here to see the menu (1, 2 and 3) and drinks (1 and 2).

When y’ at Bayou breakfast ($14.00 US)
DSC09605K-Paul’s sauteed andouille sausage, onion, bell peppers, creole sauce and a pair of eggs over white corn grits. The corn grits were very buttery and a touch to salty for my liking.


Not as refined as the grits we had at Fat’s Fried Chicken & Waffle. The rest was fairly standard fare.

Apple pecan waffle ($11.50 US)
DSC09601Belgian waffle with pecans, diced Fuji apples and a bourbon praline pecan sauce. The sauce was fantastic and the waffle was well executed.


The massive dollop of butter was completely unnecessary.

Chicken fried steak & egg ($15.25 US)
DSC09597With hash browns and a biscuit. Our friends shared this plate, a smart move, as it was huge.



There was a side of jam to go with the biscuit.

Bag o’ beignets ($6.00 US)
DSC096005 pieces of beignets and a side of chocolate sauce, which wasn’t the most satisfying. The beignets themselves were respectable.



Good texture but it wasn’t light and fluffy like others we’ve had elsewhere. A touch denser.

Overall, 5S is a decent place to get your brunch fix.
