The 12th Avenue Cafe has a long history in Issaquah. We have been eating there for over 20 years and can't recall ever having a bad meal. I love breakfast all day. The biscuits are fresh, the raspberry jam homemade, the eggs cooked perfectly etc. etc. Today my husband had the fish and chips which he said were light and... More

Stopped here 2 times on our trip to Seattle. Love the omelettes (Sweet Pea) and the eggs with German sausage. The potatoes are wonderful. Had lunch this last time. Soup was excellent and club sandwich was very good but very BIG! Definitely can't go wrong here.

Best place in Issaquah for breakfast, bar none. The lines at the door confirm that its a popular opinion. At least they put out a pot of self-service coffee for those waiting. Their scramble will beat anybody else's and their big plate of pancakes will remind you of how your Grandma use to make them "in the good old days".

I had the Italiano omelette--a half order, the full order is 5 eggs!--it was PACKED with fresh, juicy italian sausage, mushrooms, provolone. Every bite was... More

Nice place, clean, and easy to find. The service was great! Huevos Rancheros was ok. Great taste to them, but I like the tortillas crispy.

My husband and I love breakfast at the 12th Avenue Cafe. They are very busy in the mornings on weekends but the service is great so we never wait very long. The free coffee station outside is great for the times we do have to wait. The food is delicious, the portions are big, and the menu has plenty of... More

The roast beef sandwich with cheddar cheese that my son had is something he is still talking about and using to compare other meals to, My husband had the Montana with those great potatoes and he still raves about it. I had the daily special of pot roast on a bun with those yummy potatoes and I wish I had... More

Modelled on 50's diner with chrome tables & chairs, the 12th Ave Cafe offers good food at reasonable prices. We ordered omelettes that were delicious. One person ordered old fashioned oatmeal that too was good. Service was efficient & friendly.

With out a doubt the best breakfast restaurant in Issaquah WA. Portions are generous, priced reasonably, and service is great. The restaurant is busy on weekends and holidays, it’s small so make sure when you walk in put your name on the wait list. If there is a wait free coffee is available. You will not leave hungry. If you... More

Get place to get some old fashioned comfort food. Wait staff is friendly and food is fabulous. Salads, burgers and chicken fried steak all great.
