12th Avenue Cafe

One of Issaquah's oldest Cafe's, the 12th Avenue Café has passed the test of time. The food quality is very good as is the service. For breakfast, it competes nicely with the Issaquah Café for quality and cost. This is a place locals go to for a nice mid priced meal.

Been going here for decades. Excellent food, always friendly service. The Vegetana is my fave and the potato salad is awesome. Feels like going back in time when food was made with love and care and people were nicer.

While I enjoy all sorts of restaurants, I must admit I have a soft spot in my heart for diners. I love the food and the smells of a diner … I even love the eclectic sounds of a diner (as in real silverware, ceramic dishes and coffee mugs). So I popped into 12th Avenue Café for lunch on Saturday... More

My wife and I have visited this location for great breakfasts, especially their "Montana" breakfast. They are great at keeping the coffee coming in the morning, and they do have a line of people waiting to be seated. Unfortunately, I've never tried their lunch and dinner entrees so I can't comment on the rest of their menu. Definitely worth trying... More

The service was friendly and welcoming. My husband had s rambled eggs which were fine, but my blueberry pancakes were far too sweet and tasted as if straight from a packet, shame. The coffee was good.

Down home, stick to your ribs, classic breakfast. Amazing skillets, ample portions. Staff are seasoned professionals. Cute checker floor classic diner. Always a reliable favorite when I need a hearty meal.

Tried dinner on Sunday. Had Chicken 'n Dumplins. Was 1/2 a baked chicken with mashed potatoes smothered in gravy. Dumplin was a "bread ball" like a biscuit, with mixed vegetables in butter. Delicious and large serving for a very reasonable price. Included soup or salad and dessert. Will definately try again. Serves breakfast anytime.

Been here many of times and it gets worse each time. I've officially removed it from the list of places I will eat. They don't do anything special. The omelet's rarely have the cheese melted and the other food is just ok. The price they charge is a joke for breakfast. They are making a killing especially with the lines... More

We sat at the counter and watched the friendly staff prepare one of the best diner breakfasts ever. The coffee cup was never empty. Will go again.
