I come here often for breakfast. Best breakfast in Issaquah. Service is excellent. Food is always great. Weekends are a bear to get in and far to many ill-behaved children.

We recently visited from New Hampshire and had scoped out places to eat ahead of time. We were not disapointed. Great homemade food served by friendly and great people. We highly recomend this cafe,

As usual, excellent food and service . The half portions were perfect. Biscuits and gravy, crepes and swedes with a good side of bacon. Our server was attentive and had good advice on the portions. A stop for us everytime we visit!

Walking distance (although high traffic area) from Issaquah Holiday Inn, this local chain is a great place for breakfast. Large portions, fresh ingredients, good value.

Diner-style comfort food in Issaquah isn't fussy or gourmet, but it's quite good for what it is. Good pancakes, huge cinnamon rolls, and reasonably good homemade corned beef hash. Friendly service, quiet atmosphere. Good for families with kids.

We love good local diners and we seek them out when traveling. We happened upon this place and found a gem. Large menu and a bit pricey, but worth it. We had the bacon potato pancakes - oh my gosh good! I also had a bacon waffle on our second visit - it could have been hotter, but not bad.... More

My friend loves this place, and again today I gave it another go. They used to have potatoes latkes style. Staying away from the omelets and biscuits and gravy I had promised never to eat again there, I ordered potato pancakes..... onion. Bacon, cheese mixed with hash brown like potatoes. I had the good sense to order half. No taste... More

Classic diner with booths and stools at the counter coffee while you wait for a table fishing lodge decor with a fireplace to add even more confort Eggs, pancakes, waffles, omelets - I love the sour cream roll ups Good service but a very busy place - a treasure for our community!

Every time we have family in town we have brunch at the Issaquah café. The staff are wonderful and the food is great. The atmosphere is has a nostalgic northwoods diner feel. Try the corned beef hash - it is the best I have ever had. I also like the hobo scramble.

The hours are 6am to 3pm, so catch them while they're open. The comfort food will satisfy your fondest dreams! Consequently, they are busy, but efficiency and friendly service makes up for the short wait. It's tucked next door to the QFC in Gilman. We had the potato bacon pancakes. Yum! One order was enough for two, and they split... More
