One of our favorite go to spots for breakfast

The staff have been there forever and make you feel so welcome. Add to that a good hearty meal and you won't walk away disappointed. Try the pumpkin pancakes. Be warned- this place will have a line. Be prepared to wait on weekend mornings.

We had breakfast and were welcome with a big hello when we came in the door. The wait staff were friendly and treated us like regulars. the quality of the food was excellent (i recommend the kielbasa). All meal choices were enjoyed. This cafe is in a strip mall but don't be fooled this is a really nice place.

This is just an average breakfast joint at best. A little overprices as well. Issaquah is still in need of a dynamite breakfast spot!

very nice local cafe. ordered buckwheat pancakes, they must have changed their recipe because it wasn't as good as I remembered. Far prices, nice large servings. terrific milk shakes. disappointing vist, the service and food did not measure up to my past visits.

My friend and I came here for brunch on Super Bowl Sunday and only waited about 5 minutes for a table. We got breakfast items (hobo omelette & triple fruit french toast) and both were very tasty. Coffee was also good and staff were attentive with refills. I was pleased that the food was not greasy or overly filling -... More

We ate dinner here. It was very good food (nothing fancy) at a reasonable price. The service was fast and very friendly. We were hungry and tired from a day walking all over Cougar Mountain zoo, so we wanted a quiet, comfortable place to eat. We got it here.

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.
