The classic diner is not a thing you see very often in Seattle - Skillet is one of the only ones, and it’s awesome. Regrade, located deep in Amazon country, is a good option for a sit-down lunch that won’t take a ton of time. If you want pancakes or fried chicken or a burger or poutine made with root beer-braised pork for lunch, you can get all of those things at Skillet, and they’re all great.
