Been here 3 times this year. Only went today because a friend wanted to go. The food is not bad but nothing to write home about. Staff is friendly but it is way overpriced for what you get compared to all the other available options in Issaquah. Aka averaged over $22.00 per person for breakfast with tip.

This is in the old diner style, and I suspect that perhaps the 12th Avenue Cafe wasn't once a true diner in a different location. I don't know. But I had seen that this place gets pretty good reviews and we were in the area so we gave it a try. We both enjoyed it. The service was prompt and... More

The red vinyl seats tell you, this is American Comfort Food. The biscuits and gravy are tasty morsels. This restaurant is great for breakfast or lunch.

Love this place for breakfast and lunch. The food is always good, the service friendly. Have come back many many times. There isn't a better place in town for a good old down home meal.

Don't eat here often but when we do, it usually is for breakfast. Although it was lunchtime on our most recent visit, we still enjoyed breakfast. We chose the pancake sandwich and the "montana" scramble. Coffee good as is the service.

Yes it is busy but they have the best breakfast service in Issaquah. The food is down home breakfast style which my family loves....just a bit heavy for me. The bussers are amazing....on top of everything and friendly. Sure hope the wait staff and management appreciate them.

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
