Still a Great Breakfast spot

Back when it was Van's it was famous for a great breakfast. I have not eaten there for many years and now it is called Couzin's. Still making some great breakfast food! Hand formed sausage patties, Great prime rib omelet, and a good pile of hash browns too! With Rose Hill constantly under road... read more

This place was a recommendation from a friend of a friend, but boy am I glad we decided to try it. Stopped in Saturday morning on our way from Seattle to the Gorge. Amazing breakfast. Got in just before the crowd. I had the pigs in a blanket, delicious. My friends had the coconut waffles (super yummy and not too... More

Average breakfast place, no gluten free options, but they will substitute. Lots of choices. It took a half hour for omelets and they were not busy.

Small place that is easy to miss along the road heading towards Redmond. Good solid food, fair prices and attentive service. Portions are big, but not overly huge, well cooked, food was hot when it got to the table. Coffee was frequently refilled, and never made it to empty. Surprising good American home cooking style in Kirkland, A rare find... More

We have passed this cafe on our trips to Costco many times and today was the right time to try it. We were there right at lunch time and it was busy, but the service was fast. Our order was taken as soon as were ready. I had a hamburger which was very good. Also ordered were a breakfast and... More

Even though I reviewed Couzin's Cafe before, now they are serving lunch and dinner in addition to their tasty breakfasts. The theme for dinners is definitely comfort food with a twist. For example, my delicious pot roast came with a traditional gravy but instead of peas or carrots, it came with zucchini and caramelized onions plus mashed potatoes. My husband's... More

This isn't a fancy restaurant but they cook wonderful food from scratch. My husband and I were looking for a nice little breakfast spot exactly like this. We've often seen and spoken with the owner and have come to understand this is a truly family operated business. They've started serving dinner as well but the best part about that is... More

No sound buffer so if you want to talk or listen stay away. Pancakes were way underdone, side of bacon $4.75 for 3 strips. Other food offerings are pretty good but the noise is unreal.

Our party of four got there on a Saturday just before 8am and found a table right away. Looks like around 12 tables. By the time we were done there were about 8-10 people waiting for a table. I was going to order the chicken fried steak because another reviewer said it was great. Then the biscuits and gravy caught... More
