Wanted to love it....

We wanted to try a local place instead of a franchise and ended up at the Black Dog. "Quirky" was the first thing that came to mind as we came in through the back and walked through the kitchen. Once inside the restaurant, there was only one other person sitting at the counter. The staff was... read more

We stopped at this place for breakfast, after viewing the falls. A quaint cozy art cafe with beautiful decor and lovely food. We had breakfast and I loved their French toast and endless refills of coffee. Nice option when you are around the falls.

The Black Dog Art Cafe is a great name for this little restaurant. It creates for its customers a wonderful atmosphere with its eclectic decor and charming menu. The French toast is made from the restaurants fresh baked wheat bread thickly sliced. Washington is known for its great coffee and the black dog continues in that tradition. The cafe also... More

We stopped in for an early lunch; good, simple local food, in a quirky place that also has live music at night. Easy walk from Salish Inn, and a good stop while you're exploring the old town of Snoqualmie

Stopped in the Black Dog to patronize a local restaurant instead of a food court during the local Railroad Festival. The visit was bad from the beginning. There were only two tables full but we received no greeting, no menus - got those ourselves -waited 20 minutes to order even water. After ordering waited another 35 minutes and still no... More

Everything was freshly made by this family run artsy cafe. We ate here for both brunch (sunday all day) and lunch the next day too. The black dog scramble rocks!

Wonderful cafe! Excellent food and lots of options for diners of all types. Very warm and welcoming service and they had a little toy section for little children. Bright and clean surroundings. Highly recommend!!

Our local writers group got together to celebrate the end of a writing event. We were able to rearrange the furniture so we could all sit near each other. Nice range of local brew and wine and the food, while a little slow to arrive, was delicious. Fun, quirky spot that I'd happily go to again.

cute cafe, very nice service but the food was really bad. the owner who served us said they were training a new cook, but come on - the food wasn't seasoned and the specials portions were teeny-tiny. i don't recommend it at all.

We spent the night in Cle Elum (on the other side of the Cascades) and were looking for a restaurant with vegetarian offerings for my daughter on our trip home to Olympia. We stopped for brunch on a Sunday. It was around 10:00. We entered an empty restaurant. I mean completely empty. No guests, no cook, no waiters. The door... More
