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

Issaquah Cafe is very much a diner. From the seats/tables to the menu to the decor, it's all very quaint. They are very accommodating for large groups, but you have to not mind the wait, of course. The servers were prompt in refilling drinks and such with our large group. The food is very good; expect a selection of every... More

It's rare to be seated immediately at the Issaquah Cafe, even on a weekday lunch hour. But the wait is worth it as the food meets a high standard. The friendly staff always try to accommodate us with baby in tow, providing a car seat sling or high chair as needed. My favorite dish is the California benedict, which is... More

Lunch was good. We had an au jus prime rib sandwich, a Caesar salad, home made biscuit and northwest chili. All the food was filling and the place felt comfortable (friendly with a touch of kitchen cozy). Prices were reasonable. We made it in just before they closed at 3 PM.

We enjoy regular trips to our local Issaquah Cafe, as they have the best breakfast in town. Ask for the BOB, and you will be a fan too. I try to order other things, but the BOB just jumps out of the menu, and order it. If you like B&G (biscuits and Gravy) this a great variation, and you will... More

We've eaten here twice now. Both were good experiences. I had pancakes which were tasty and loved the warm syrup. Bacon was good, not too crispy, and meaty. Coffee was good. Wait staff is friendly. There seems to always be a wait on weekends so don't go then if you don't have the time. Definitely will check them out again... More

My family and I moved to Bellevue almost a year ago and we tried a couple of other breakfast places before we found Issaquah Cafe. Let's just say our breakfast joint search is over!! We have now been here at least once a month and sometimes more. Their food is delicious, portions are huge, and ingredients are fresh! Here's what... More

This is a must place to eat. Enjoyed by the locals. Try all of their specialties as they make everything fresh. I ate here every day I was staying in Issaquah. Breakfast is much better than lunch

This is a wonderful restaurant. Very friendly with a diversified menu. When I walked in, the chalk board grabbed my attention with their offered pies...blackberry, oregonberry, marionberry, apple and coconut cream. When I saw blackberry, I thought that I would skip the sandwich and have the pie. However, I was very disappointed when there was not a slice for me.... More

Long a family tradition, the Issaquah Cafe has kept its strengths: good pie in a great variety, decent food, good breakfast food, comfortable seating, good location. I had the chance to dine here last week after a ten-year absence. The service was friendly but leisurely. The coffee is good.
