We've been coming to Pat's Café for over a decade and the owners, Nancy and Kevin have become friends of ours. They prepare our brunch/breakfasts special and have been doing that for many years remembering our "little quirks" since the very first time we came into the restaurant. When it's slow (very seldom) Kevin will come out of the kitchen... More

Trying to find a new breakfast place and ran across this location. The décor is from the 70s which wouldn't be so bad if the food was better. The bacon and cheese omelette was bacon like meat and processed cheese. The polish sausage and eggs were OK. Service also average.

The food is very good, perfect take on the classic American breakfast items. The atmosphere is great too. You literally feel like you're having breakfast at someones house. The staff were friendly.

This is not the first time I come to this place and every time it's been great food with great service, no mayer how full. Today I got the pancakes, which were perfect. Nice, fluffy, golden brown. I also had 2 eggs, which were made exactly like I wanted (over easy), 2 bacon slices, ham, and 2 pieces of sausage... More

Our experience was not bad, but it wasn't what we prefer. Unfortunately, Lacey doesn't have anything for breakfast that is top notch. We didn't want Denny's or IHOP for sure, so we tried it. It's a little run down, kitschy, and tired. The menu has variety. Everything is pretty greasy and I'm sure the oil they use to cook with... More

Pat's was a welcome find to break the monotony of corporate places for breakfast or brunch. They have, by far, the best biscuits and gravy I have had yet in the PNW, and I am from the south. Enjoyable, decent priced food in an eclectic atmosphere make this a must stop if you are in town.

This is a very cozy and friendly place. We are regulars and are always greeted with warm smiles. The food is a good value and just as good as you would get from Denny's or Ihop and cheaper. The menu is limited and its not the exceptional food that brings us back. It very much is the at home with... More

I wanted a simple breakfast that wasn't made in a factory. Pats was the place. I arrived at 8 AM and it was already 2/3 full. Almost all of the diners were local diners and obviously repeat customers. Even though there were only two people in evidence cooking and serving it seemed that no one had to wait very long... More

Quiet (8 or so tables) mom and pop cafe right on Pacific Avenue near Carpenter Road SE. Often our biker group will meet here for breakfast before a nice ride. This time, I just wanted a nice breakfast by myself. Stopped by and had a nice steak with a couple of eggs, toast, hash-browns (plenty of them on the plate)... More
