Cute spot with live music on a Sunday afternoon, which was cool. They do not deviate from their menu at all (for example, we asked if we could get plain pancakes when we saw blueberry pancakes on the menu - no...and asked for "plain" salad instead of Ceasar or their other option - no), so don't go... read more

This place offers nightly live music & entertainment. We went for lunch and missed it. It's in a historic building with lots of character. The hostess, barkeep and server was delightful and gave us great advice on things to see in the village. Our lunch sandwich was fresh and tasty on their bread baked daily. It wasn't a bargain price,... More

After a tiring, cold hike at Snoqualmie Falls this place had excellent coffee and brunch foods. The French toast and omelettes were excellent!

not sure if they know what they want to be. a bar, a restuarant, a lounge, a music venue. If you are looking for a bar scene this is probably as close as you will come in snoqualmie but you might as well go to bellevue if you want club dancing or music

Stopped here on a busy weekend during the local train festival. You would think they would be on their toes...not so much. The overall dining room is cluttered and doesn't seem clean. Many tables remained covered with dirty dishes. There were only 3 other tables filled, yet it took 10 minutes to get acknowledged, and then after placing an order,... More

After an invigorating experience at Snoqualmie Falls, the familia was hungry for some healthy but satisfying eats. The Black Dog fit the bill beautifully. Conveniently situated just about 10 minutes away from the falls (straight down Railroad Avenue), this little café is right in the middle of a charming town. The walls are decorated by the work of local artists... More

This family owned restaurant is our families favorite. They have the best homemade, fresh from scratch food. The fresh baked bread is amazing and don't forget to have a piece of chocolate cake. You will feel right at home here. Everyone is so warm and welcoming. Often in the evenings there is live music. Because everything is made fresh don't... More

Down the road a few miles from Snoqualmie Falls, the small town restaurant may not look fancy but the reasonably priced food and good service make it a nice place to catch lunch after visiting the falls. The sandwiches and salads we had were all very good and creatively made.

This is an inviting space with good food and an artsy and welcoming ambience. The coffee is good and the food is typical of what one would expect at a small café, not high-end gourmet offerings, but tasty sandwiches and soups with high-quality fresh ingredients. The bread was especially good and is made on the premises. Mostly, I loved the... More

We stopped in because they were out of touch for some time and started serving food again. Service is slow as maple syrup. Food which we had sandwiches was tasty but high priced for what you got. Local art etc. on walls.
