You'll wish you lived in this Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle so you could drop in. They even have water bowls and biscuits outside for the dogs. We went for Sunday breakfast with the two grandkids, ages 8 & 10, a very kid friendly place with good food and great coffee (well, it is Seattle) Granddaughter & I shared the... More

The service here is top-notch as is the food. We were there the first time on a Sunday and only waited about 15 minutes. I had corned beef hash and it was real beef-tender and flavorful, with veggies and eggs that were cooked to perfection. I opted to pay a buck more for the biscuit instead of toast & am... More

The food choices are varied and xcellent as is the service. Even though it is full many times when eating there, the wait time to take our foos choices and be... More

Found in the Columbia City section of Seattle. I found it through TripAdvisor and confirmed the reviews through a secondary internet search. Glad I went! The reviews were right. We sat at the counter where we had great coffee & food (tortilla omelette & French toast) with prompt service. We would definitely go back.

Yumm. French toast. Mine had nectarines on it. I'm baffled at the texture. I make french toast all the time but I'm not sure how they get it so crunchy without being greasy from being cooked in butter. I had a biscuit too, from other's reviews...however it wasn't the amazing item I was expecting. Good for sure, but would probably... More

Coffee cake and chicken fried steak...these are "must have" items from the menu. The place is popular - be prepared for a wait...it is worth the wait.

I usually order the cobb salad and a slice of the day's coffee cake. The french toast is also good. A vibrant eatery with interesting art on the walls and good service. My only complaint is that It can get loud during the breakfast and weekend rush, the wall's don't absorb noise well enough.

Friends said the French toast here was amazing. They were right. I don't know how they make it so crispy, yet soft in the middle and not too dark. Go there and have the French toast. Bacon on the side (it's nice and thick, not too greasy.) Fun place. It gets crowded, busy, and loud. Prepare for a wait most... More
