We stopped in while walking though town and found the cafe charming. The women working the register, possibly the owner or manager, was knowledgeable and helpful. We had a hot cocoa, latte, cookie, and biscotti. The flavors were spot-on. It was the end of the day and the cookies were a bit hard, but that only lent to the homemade... More

Upon entering Cafe Sarah in North Creek, you'll be greeted by the most friendly and sincerely spoken: "well, hellouw!" by the outgoing Molly. She should have this greeting trademarked, because it is so wonderful and worth A LOT OF MONEY. I am serious, you feel great, instantly, you feel welcome and treated to a tasty treat here. Cafe Sarah has... More

we had tea and pastries for a quick "brunch". The tea was very good. Pastries were good, but no better than what we can get at home. Friendly staff. We thought it was kind of pricey.

Close to all attractions and hotels in gore mountain place has a good choice of breakfast options . we munched on the breakfast burritos over chai latte . a touch on the pricey side for gore mountain but should bother those with a palate . chocolate zucchini was great

Brought cookies and banana bread for our drive home. I only bought two of the giant chocolate chip cookies I should have bought more they were gooey and great. The banana bread was wonderful.

I had a tomato, swiss and leek quiche and a blueberry scone. Wow! Both of them were amazing. I went on a Saturday morning and there was only 1 person working the counter. She was friendly but another person would've been so much faster. I ate in the dining area and couldn't get away from the flies. I ended up... More

Cafe Sarah is on the main drag through North Creek, across from the very interesting mosaic mural local volunteer artists are building. We stopped for breakfast and it appears to be the most popular spot in town for breakfast judging by the traffic going to the counter. We tried a ham and cheese pastry in a puff pastry dough, a...

My family was vacationing nearby and spent an afternoon in North Creek. We had read the race reviews about Sarah's. We purchased 4 cupcakes and 4 cookies. The frosting on the cupcakes was delicious. That is the only positive thing I can say. Both the cookies and especially the cupcakes were so dry we could not even eat them and... More

Very good espresso and excellent fresh baked goods are available every day at this friendly, casual, well stocked North Creek bakery - cafe. We came every morning for three days straight and loved everything. Be sure to try the blueberry muffins, oat scones and cold brew ice coffee - all as good as any I've had anywhere. Highly recommended.

Been coming here for as long as they've been in biz - Sarah's is a truly excellent bakery and Sarah is awesome! Muffins, homemade bread, scones, egg sandwiches, ice coffee, you name it, Sarah makes it great. Lovely and friendly staff, just pull up an Adirondack chair outside and watch the traffic (not much) on main st. Can't say enough... More
