We had a wonderful Sunday morning experience. Very busy, yet the service was cordial, the food was hot, and delivered in a relatively short time considering the diverse orders of the seven in our party. Clean and airy dining room. I recommend one of the house specials called the, "Montana". Look it up. The medium size required a take-out box,... More

Never disappoints. Been here a few times since we've moved to WA, and it continues to be a favorite. Can get busy, but very good.

This is a cute little cafe, with excellent breakfast. My husband and I both got the chicken fried steak with gravey. It was sooooo good. If we get back to this area, we'll definitely come back here. I'd like to try the French Toast next time. That looked really good too.

Service was very good, very friendly, and attentive. Got seated right away. Had our server at our table quickly. I recalled that they offer some very good French Roast coffee. Asked for it, and they made a fresh pot, yum! I ordered the traditional breakfast of eggs, sausage and potatoes. It came with pancakes (or toast, biscuit, etc). I added... More

We came by for breakfast on a Saturday around 11am, the place was packed but we got lucky and got a table right away. Breakfast options are great and varied. I got the eggs benedict, came with a side of potatoes, very tasty but the eggs were just a tiny bit overdone. BF had the Montana special which was a... More

In Issaquah on vacation. We haven't been here for 6 years but it was our first stop on our trip. Great food, service and good gluten free knowledge. Huge plates and non-stop coffee top-ups. Will be back before we leave!

We were here for breakfast on a Friday around 9:30. We were seated right away. The vibe is that if a typical diner with airplane art, red booths and black and white tile. The Eggs Benedict was what one would expect, nothing fancy, but decent. The Pancake Sandwich was 2 huge pancakes topped with bacon or sauasage, and eggs cooked... More

Excellent food and nice café ambience. Good vegetarian options, although I mostly just looked at the breakfast menu. I got the Vegetana – which was delicious and HUGE. Lots of veggies. Good service. All around nice experience.
