It's not inexpensive but the food is so good and the portions are so generous that you can't possibly leave hungry or unsatisfied. The owner is the nicest man and really wants to make sure that all of his guests are happy. It all adds up to a very enjoyable morning.

One egg, one micro pancake and you will need two people to eat it. Blueberry and walnuts in the pancakes! All for $8. Get the regular coffee with bottomless refills. Best place for breakfast in Downtown Bellevue.

I have been here for breakfast twice. You can eat inside or out. Try the minibreakfast. It is more than enough since you get a bagel on the side. The staff is nice, the ambiance is adequate. It is a good place for a fast eat.

Especially enjoyed the tomato soup -not cream-based, but rich with tomato and herb taste. Caesar salad was excellent as was the fresh avocado,,cucumber and tomato sandwich. For a quick meal, we were really impressed with the quality of food and service to their outside tables. Top notch deli.

This is a Bellevue institution and quite possible the most expensive sandwich place in the world, but well worth every bite. We have been completely my here for well over a decade and Gilbert never disappoints. I highly recommend getting the Reuben but have them just use corned beef on it. Also the breakfasts here are fantastic

I went to Gilbert's for the first time this afternoon to meet a friend for lunch. I chose Gilbert's in part because of their rating, but more so because they has several good looking salads on the menu for my friend who is trying to eat low-carb. Haha funny going to a breakfast/sandwich place, right? So as I walk to... More

I have been coming here off and on for over 25 years. Yesterday had breakfast with my girlfriend and while we were sitting in back corner kind of hiding away a bit the owner can up and checked on our meals to make sure he had everything we needed. Deep in conversation we thanked him and remembered how often we... More

We had 2 bagel sandwiches- the maple turkey and the club for lunch. Based on the reviews I maybe had higher expectations. The sandwiches were good but nothing great by any means. They were slightly pricey for the size but did come with a potato salad which was average.
