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

While staying in Bellevue, we used Yelp to try to find breakfast spots. This got some good reviews so we took a chance went there. This is a tiny, hole-in-the-wall restaurant but the food was really good and plenty of it! There is no place to wait except outside so if it's raining, dress for standing outside. We had a... More

Extreme value for money. Old style family run cafe that serves huge portions that are so well prepared. The killer Chicken Fried Steak is big enough for two. The batter is spiced just right and it is not overcooked like most places. Did I mention the portions are huge? On weekends expect to wait for a table 10-20 minutes as... More

My family has eaten at Couzin's on a number of occasions. My wife and I most frequently call our order in, grabbing a hamburger to-go and share it on the road. Their burgers are so big that we find it difficult to finish even one between us. The food is delicious and the staff are very nice. It's like visiting... More

And they're always busy. Couzin's has quite a loyal local following and for a good reason. There was about a 15 minute wait to be seated when I was there but once seated the service was prompt and the breakfast came out quickly. The food was good but nothing jumped out at me to encourage a 5 star rating

The food here is great and so is the service. My order came back quickly and was absolutely delicious. Another nice bonus was that the waitress didn't mysteriously stop topping off my coffee after giving me my check (this has been an annoyance at other breakfast spots). Unfortunately, I found the decor a bit wanting (honestly kind of depressing). Also,... More

This was my third visit to Couzin's Cafe for breakfast. I took my grandsons who enjoyed their meals and we all thought it was a great breakfast with large portions for a small price. Service was very attentive and fast. The pancakes were yummy as were the hash browns (extremely generous portion) and eggs. I have also enjoyed the scrambles... More

This is a diner style restaurant with a fantastic breakfast menu along with price. It has the best pancakes I have ever had in a restaurant. Of the different pancakes offered, get the Blueberry Pancakes. There are so many blueberries its like having pancakes with your blueberries. Yesterday I had a prime rib omelette. The portion was so large I... More
