Just a standard breakfast place. This is where you go when the other places are too crowded. There are other places nearby that are better. Nothing special.

Great place for brunch. Home style cooking, cozy atmosphere with a lodge-like Pacific Northwest look, and friendly wait staff.

My first visit was for a 7 am breakfast at which hour there was ample seating. The waitress was very attentive and the omelet was served piping hot along with fresh hot biscuits that were baked "in house" from scratch! I recommend dining at this establishment and will be returning here myself!

What's going in my belly: Amazing coffee, eggs scrambled with seasoned taco meat, Tillamook cheddar, red & green peppers & crispy tortilla strips. Topped with ranchero sauce, avocado, sour cream and green onion. Seasoned baby reds and a homemade biscuit. Let's not forget the amazing marionberry jam 😍👅.. Naturally I picked a mom & pop diner { my fav }.... More

It has a diner theme and plays music from the era of poodle skirts. It attracts many mature adults which I take as a sign that the food is good. Everybody in our party thought their food was just fine but nothing we would crave to have again. The eggs benedict was average but prepared exactly how we ordered. We... More

We had a large family gathering, ten of us coming over from the U. K. To join forces with our American relatives. We had breakfast here and they fitted 13 of us all together without a fuss and the waitress was amazing taking our order with not one mistake. The food arrived pretty much all together and it was very... More

When you finally find it because it's in a small strip mall don't worry about the unimpressive front look of the building because as soon as you step inside and have to wait for a table you know you're in the right place with the menu as long as your arm and an old fashioned sit up bar as well...

Went for breakfast and was not disappointed. We had buckwheat pancakes, bacon, hash browns, and an omelette. Everything was delicious and the waiter was great. We requested crisp bacon, and it was done perfectly and good bacon. We will be back and look forward to trying the pies next time!

I like to stay in Issaquah just so we can eat here! I have a new favorite from their menu - this time I had the Strawberry Rhubarb Crepes. If you love rhubarb, this dish is WONDERFUL. Nice tart rhubarb taste - not too tar, not too sweet. Love their eggs benedict as well. It will be difficult to decide... More
