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

Best Diner I've been in in ages. Food is always hot and tasty. I've just moved to Issaquah and Issaquah Cafe is my new any day every day spot!

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

Anytime we're traveling in the States we make sure we have breakfast at the Issaquah Cafe. The breakfast options are extensive and the food is delicious and the service is exemplary. You get great value for your dollar and the cinnamon buns are amazing!

I used to go to Sammamish Cafe until I found out this one was nearer our new place. Both good breakfast places. You can always be sure that the service and and the food will always be consistently good.

A good friend took me here to lunch for my birthday. It was a Sunday at 12:30, so it was packed. We were seated after waiting about 20 minutes. The menu consisted of about 8 different hot sandwiches and the same number of cold sandwiches. A choice of one side is included with the sandwich of your choice. I ordered... More

Locally owned cafe. What you'd expect or hope to fine. Good food and plenty of it. Servers are far superior to what you expect to find in local cafe. They have a couple of other locations in neighboring towns.
