“Great local chain of diners”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Crystal Creek Cafe is our local "go to" place when we want simple, quality, diner comfort food. We mainly eat there for breakfast, so my review will focus on those food items--although they serve their breakfast foods throughout the day as well.

I typically go for a combo plate of meat, eggs, and pancakes or hash browns, and CCC does them all right. Lately I've been getting either an omelette or scramble, and I love their different combinations and flavors.

My daughter loves the hot chocolate with mini M&Ms in them, as well as the kid portions of pancakes and bacon.

Of note is the decor: each cafe in this local chain uses a different Americana theme. At Crystal Creek, it is WW2 nostalgia, and the walls and ceiling are covered in posters, paintings, memorabilia, old handbills, even scale airplanes hanging from the ceiling. This is especially popular with older vets who served in WW2, such as my dad. :)

“Good food, good people -- great place to eat!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

I took my wife, sister, daughter and two granddaughters to Crystal Creek Cafe today. Nice atmosphere, with a kind of diner approach, but modern They had a booth that would actually fits us all, with a high chair at the end. Very family friendly, and Sara was a great server. The food was excellent! I highly recommend this cafe!

“Excellent Homemade Cooking!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

It doesn't get much better that this place. I believe they have several restaurants now, each with a similar menu. This is like home cooking. Meatloaf, Pot Roast, Breakfast items, Pies, etc. They are very consistent on their food, flavor and quality, as well as great service. We are fans! We also like their Woodinville location.

“yummy”

Excellent breakfast specials - particularly love the red velvet pancakes on Sundays. Service is quick, but you never feel rushed. A great place to try.
