People here were so nice and breakfast was awesome! Small Cafe in a retail strip, but food was worth going. I would definitely return!

I gave Couzins one more try; have had lunch there twice and breakfast thrice. Each time the service has been painfully slow. The food is okay, portions large, prices average. This place would be fine for someone with a lot of time on their hands - otherwise, forget it.

What a great little spot! We came on a Saturday around 10 and were seated within 10 minutes. We ordered eggs benedict and a sausage and bacon omelette with pancakes. People arent kidding when they say the portions are huge! Be hungry, or prepare to leave stuffed. The food is very good, and I particularly enjoyed the ham on the... More

I took a while to get our food because it's a tiny kitchen, but it was delicious. The sweet cream pancakes were a nice change from the buttermilk I'm used to. The breakfast sausage was about twice as large as the standard links you see in most restaurants. California scramble was delicious :) We went on a Tuesday morning and... More

Had a late breakfast with eggs, pancakes and sausage as well as a sausage benedict. The plates were huge. Service was very good even though the restaurant was completely full. With the eggs and pancakes, one gets three medium size pancakes, two eggs and two large sausage patties. The sausage benedict included two poached eggs on top of three sausage... More

The number of people waiting outside the restaurant on Saturday morning told me that the place had to be good. I was seated after about 15 minutes, then chose the ham and cheddar omelet with hash browns and toast. The omelet was large and fluffy, with plenty of fillings. The large slab of hash browns was nicely done, and the... More

We went here for breakfast and lunch. The pancakes were delicious and plentiful. I had a BLT and it was more than I could finish. The prices are reasonable and seems to be a locals favorite. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants good food.

We are always looking to try different places and Tripadvisor is our favorite place to check out where to eat. So off we went to Couzin's Cafe for breakfast on our way to a conference. It was as good as it gets. No waiting, fast service, outstanding delicious food, awesome portions, and priced right for us. I love omelets and... More

This place was a recommendation from a friend of a friend, but boy am I glad we decided to try it. Stopped in Saturday morning on our way from Seattle to the Gorge. Amazing breakfast. Got in just before the crowd. I had the pigs in a blanket, delicious. My friends had the coconut waffles (super yummy and not too... More
