You can't go wrong with a Farmer's Scramble. It's not on the menu, but they're happy to make it for you. Also, give the pancakes a try. They're amazing!! So light and fluffy!

We visited on a Sunday around noon, and it was really busy. We Were able to sit at the bar so we didn't have to wait. They have a nice breakfast menu. Our breakfast was delicious. When we were finished, they asked if we would like a cup of coffee to go...what a nice touch.

The Issaquah Cafe is always tasty, always friendly and always busy. But that's a good sign in my book! : )

Very busy, even early in the morning. Portions are generous, and quality of the food is excellent. We were staying across the street, but my husband did not want a "hotel breakfast" (that we would have had to pay $12.95 each to get) and this was perfect.

Great friendly staff who insure you receive timely service, coffee and water etc. refills if needed. Place is normally busy so maybe a slight wait. Good size menu, portions are reasonable, quality is good, and tasty. I have stopped here numerous times over the years and never left hungry or disappointed.

This is one of those restaurants that would make a bad day better if you managed to find a seat at the counter. The waitstaff is friendly and prompt, the other customers (who are all regulars) will see how your day is going, and the food is straight from grandma's stove. They roast their own turkeys. None of that funky,... More

It has been many years since my last visit to this restaurant (before Trip Advisor!) but I stopped in today for breakfast/lunch and I was not disappointed. My server, Cara, was terrific and did a great job keeping my coffee cup filled. The food -- a Patty Melt -- was hot, fresh and really good! Anyway, I felt welcomed there... More

My wife and I stopped for breakfast and found the cafe clean and spacious. Our server Nick was very quick to seat us and get us beverages. He explained the special which I opted for; a three egg scramble with Swiss cheese, ham and assorted veggies. It was very tasty and came with toast or pancake and hash browns. The... More
