  1. Ricky Romano

    Classic American Dinner. One of my favorite places to go for Sunday brunch.

  2. GlitchGaming01

    Stopped by for lunch with some friends. Everyone loved their food, amazing customer service, and our waiter CJ was super nice! Definitely recommend

  3. Matt Berger

    Great breakfast… certainly beats the typical hotel offerings.

  4. Valery Spivey

    Good food, good people. Go to breakfast place.

  5. Marianna Leaver

    Busy. Popular. Great food. Service exemplary.

  6. Ronald Parker

    Classic dinner with Bloody Mary’s and mimosas.
    5 stars on a diner is a tough pull, but walking in at 2 any day of the week may not get you any pie in this exceptionally maintained and ran dinner.

    I have been multiple times on the weekends at different times.
    I bring my clients during the week.
    It is not close to my house.

    If you like dinners you will love this

  7. Andrew Poole

    Loved this place and the waitstaff were incredibly nice and helpful

  8. Krutika Gonnade

    Great ambience. Delicious food. A must-visit place.

  9. Austin Thompson

    Food was the best breakfast I’ve tasted ever, service was great by Rose.

  10. Catalina Danila

    This place needs to expand! It’s crowded, but worth the 50 minutes wait!

  11. Ben Conner

    Great place to stop for Breakfast. Feels like an old dinner with a modern twist. The dinner was packed when we showed up, but it was only a 5 minute wait for a table.

    The service was prompt and the food was ready shortly after ordering. Both of the meals we ordered tasted great. I could have easily done half an order. You’re really getting your money’s worth when you order here.

    I ordered the corned beef hash and it’s the best I have ever had. The biscuits and gravy were also top notch. I really like how fluffy the biscuits were.

    The atmosphere at this location was pretty nice. The theme was something out of the ’40s and well decorated. I would definitely eat here again.

  12. Brian Decker

    Nice place. Food was tasty. Reasonably priced for the area. Service was excellent

  13. Dim Star

    Although i should’ve mentioned our overhead ceiling light was out, making it difficult to read the menus but… our food was prepared quickly (w/major kudos to our chef!!), ¡muy sabroso!😋our server Kim was funny and cordial, as well as knowledgeable regarding our questions… our meals were a wonderful surprise and definitely homestyle prepared! we will be back since their “from scratch” pies are the BEST!!☺️

  14. J B

    Solid breakfast spot, Monte Cristo, Huevos Rancheros, and the Benny’s are my top picks.

  15. Damon Shearer

    Back after a few years away and it was great to be back. The food was excellent! Even though they were quite busy (30 min wait, if not in the bar or at the counter), the level of service was top notch.
    Staff had fun attitudes, were attentive, and I never ran out of coffee 😊
    Cedric, or server, was particularly cool and the overall vibe and other guests made for a lovely start to the day.
    Tons of food choices, so you should be able to find something. Plus with some of the larger options, shouldn’t go hungry either.

  16. Logan Sather

    Chain diner with friendly staff, a nice atmosphere. I like the location in Mill Creek much better due to space constraints – this place gets busy!

  17. forrestNtrudy Sowle

    Had breakfast in the bar, first time in years, the bar makes were happy go lucky it was a good time joking around..

  18. William Johnson

    Our go to neighborhood spot for brunch, busy but worth it, especially since we can reserve a spot in line from home!

  19. Joe Blaschka Jr.

    We have eaten at the Crystal Creek Cafe for many years. It is great to be able to get breakfast in the evening. In fact, that is what we had today. I had the buckwheat waffle, bacon, and eggs. It was great!

  20. Laura Miller

    Very comfortable cafe and atmosphere. Food and service were great. Busy but not to busy. Highly recommend for comfort food

  21. Cassy Marx

    Great selection of breakfast food. They also have lunch items available. Unique airplane/hanger decor. If you’re into airplanes, I would definitely recommend it. The service was great, and the food was great as well.

  22. Andrew Sotheby

    Hash Brown over fried and served to me. Steak does not look great. I don’t know what has happened to my Steak and Eggs!

  23. Fred Rea

    Been going to either Crystal creek or Woodinville Cafe for many years. Breakfast food is rock solid with a ton of options on everything Breakfast food related. Strangely enough the dinner is also solid and not just a blue hair dinner. The perfect mix of family friendly, great food options, and quick friendly service. This location also has a bar which is a plus for those who want a bloody Mary on a Saturday morning.

  24. Allison Bryak

    Great food, but terrible access for those with wheelchairs or walkers. The ADA parking spot is way at the end, and if the lot is full and you need to park further away, you can’t get in without walking all the way down there, or going down steps or through a planted area, as there is no way to get between the cars and up the curb to the door. They really need to put a hashed area with a curb ramp near the front door.

  25. Raj Shah

    Vegetarian options: A few vegetarian options available. If you’re ok with eggs many options open up for you. The menu is that of a typical American diner

  26. Sandra James

    Great food and service! Delicious gluten free French toast!!

  27. Sari Webb

    Love this place for classic diner brunch

  28. Brady Carey

    Excellent food and service. We did breakfast for Mother’s day. The wait-list option from their website was a really great experience for a day that I knew was going to be busy.

    The food was all really good, it came quickly (especially considering how busy they were), and service was wonderful.

    I’m looking forward to coming back sometime!

  29. Michael Emshwiller

    The omelets were amazing and the blueberry/lemon pancakes were to die for… oh my so so good

  30. Peggy Gabriel

    Great food from a varied menu and service is always enjoyable!

  31. Anita Hoogerhyde

    We had the cilanto lime fish tacos, the flavor of the cilantro lime slaw was delicious. The piece of fish was miniscule

  32. Sana Shabber

    Good breakfast experience at crystal creek Cafe. We ordered veggie omelette and it was delicious.

  33. Nancy Barnes

    Yummy comfort food. Nice atmosphere. Service usually good. But it can be very noisy there during busy times.

  34. Prem Gnanarajah

    If you have children this would be a fun restaurant to bring them to as it has the planes, retro decor, and the familiar. In terms of adults the food was worse than Dennys, service was pretty bad waited 45min to eat essentially a ego waffle and cold eggs while our bill for 2 came to $60. Would rather of gone to Dennys but like I said if you have children this is a fun place to bring them too.

  35. Valerie Rands

    Wait time was a little long. Food was good. Tried a variety of items and they were tasty. The place was really busy so service wasn’t the best but overall good food for the price.

  36. Keith Lambert

    Love this place, food is always good, portions big and service top notch. Nothing negative can be said.

  37. Beth James

    We love going out to eat here! Good food & wait staff

  38. Dusty Arenson

    Reminded me of a throwback style diner. My biscuits and gravy was pretty good. Not the best I’ve had but it was solid. My niece however, really loved her cinnamon rolls.

  39. John Dabeck

    Best spot around! Amazing for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Atmopshere is so fun and the food is SO good!

  40. Terry Lee

    Ordered to go, food came out in few minutes with silverware. Absolutely delicious.

  41. Nick R.

    Mediocre service but excellent food made from high-quality ingredients.

  42. Julie

    Go here often on weekends for breakfast. They don’t mind that my friends talk over coffee after breakfast.

  43. Diane Bradford

    Went with a group of gal friends for brunch and mimosas. It was perfect!

  44. Scott Pele

    Foods great, service is great. Although it can get uncomfortably crowded because it’s so great/popular.

  45. Robert Lundy

    Nice people, great food and service.

  46. Josh Ross

    Great little cafe. Its part of a chain of cafe’s. Village square in Redmond, mukilteo cafe and a few more.. They are my go to for breakfast. There lunch are great to.

  47. Adri Richards

    From time to time when I don’t go to Woodinville café. I like to come to Crystal Creek Cafe. Like all the 7 ( different named) cafes the food is always very good and very consistent. I like how all cafes have a different theme. Crystal Creek, being airplanes. The staff is always friendly. The food is always well worth the wait.

  48. Kiersten Berton

    Great diner spot with delicious breakfast. Mixture of American staples and some more diverse items (like migas, for example). Tillamook cheddar as an option on pretty much everything. Killer hash browns. Attentive service.

  49. Jerry Fischer

    Enjoyed a Father’s day breakfast with my son, granddaughter and her mother. Lovely and tasty.

  50. Mitch Coffey

    The brisket on the corned beef was amazing. It has no business being that good! 10/10

  51. Andre Stepsky

    Love it. But pricey but hey it’s wa

  52. Chrissy p

    This is my favorite breakfast place. They have gluten free pancake options!

  53. Kathryn Armstrong

    This is one of the larger locations of a small group of chains (you can see all the locations on their menu!) and it’s open into the evening. They do all day breakfast and their lunch and dinner menus are also quite good. I’ve gone to get food at various times of day during the week and the food is always fresh and good and the wait time isn’t too awful. This is an extremely popular group of restaurants, so be prepared to have a good wait on high traffic days. They do have an online wait-list service if you’d like jump ahead of the line a bit. I find their biscuits and their gravy are especially good (the biscuits are truly massive). If you’re looking for a treat, then definitely try their cinnamon rolls – they come with a lemon cream cheese frosting that’s delicious. Be aware they only come in a 4-pack, but they’re happy to take one out and warm it up for you in the restaurant 🙂

  54. Jesus Ledezma

    Excellent fast friendly service great food definitely A+ 👍

  55. Sally Waters

    Nice atmosphere, wait staff nice and always prepared to help. My first time there and hope to return.

  56. Alicia Sears

    Breakfast was so so delicious. They were super busy (visited on July 4th) but the service was good and someone was always available if you needed something.

  57. B Martinez

    The food was okay , French toast bland glad I ordered the fruit French toast as the fruit gave it some flavor and the fruit was fresh. The service was just okay we asked although our waitress was a bit more bubbly with the gentleman she was serving next to us. According to my child pancakes and eggs were good the other child also taught the French toast was just okay . The milkshake was great would order milkshakes to go not sure I would come back for breakfast food.

  58. Tara Parks

    I love that they have half-size options!

  59. Pete Bower

    Sarah was out server. Very nice young lady, friendly fast and efficient. Food was great too.

  60. Beatriz M

    I ordered the bacon waffle and it was delicious. I also tried my friend’s corned beef hash and I think I enjoyed it more. I will definitely order it for myself next time. The staff were friendly and was very attentive to when we need a refill of our coffee. We had a great time. The rhubarb pie ended our brunch on a sweet note.

  61. Raven Bourdon (PookietheGr8)

    Excellent service and very friendly staff! The food was delicious!

  62. Sandra Kilgore

    This is the best restaurant for breakfast. They have half order omelets, yummy buckwheat pancakes, hot loose green tea served in a little pot (not a tea bag), and house made pie. Their Happy Hour small plate options are reasonably priced and tasty. The atmosphere of WWII paraphernalia is pretty cool.

  63. Jill Michel

    The food was absolutely amazing. The service was perfect.

    We were leaving our hotel expecting to go on a hunt for a cafe for breakfast and passed this place in the parking lot. It was a gift from God.

    The food was absolutely wonderful. I even took the left overs to go, and I never do that especially when headed to the airport, but I couldn’t let them go to waste.

    If you are looking for good food, great service come here.

  64. Christina Schroeder

    A frequent breakfast stop for us. For no wait, get there early, soon after they open. Otherwise it packs out quickly. Service is fast and friendly. Food is delicious. I like that they have a half portion option. Family friendly.

    Vegetarian options: Vegetable scrambles and some other options. Also, plenty of options that meat can be omitted from.

    Parking: They have a few spots out front but the business center they are in is full of smaller business so it never really fills up.

    Kid-friendliness: Crayons and kids menu. Plenty of space between tables to fit in a high chair. Enough background noise to drown out some of the kiddo noise. Food fits well for kid palate. We normally share the adult food plates with our toddler. No complaints here.

  65. Joe Blaschka Jr

    I have always found the food here good and reliable. If they get really busy sometimes the service is slow. Today, I was there for lunch. It was busy and the service was great. I like eating here. They have several similar places in the surrounding area with different decorations but the same basic menu.

    We went again and it was as good as always.

  66. Steven Lewis

    Pulled pork eggs benedict was absolutely fantastic 🤤🤤🤤

  67. Dee Hetland

    when you enter, plenty of good staff, who is there to get you seated as quickly as possible. Food always hot and delicious. Great atmosphere, decorated with good memorabilia. Cinnamon rolls are delicious, get one to take home, if available. They can go quickly.
    I was meeting a friend for brunch, this time we had Cedric for our server this time and as usual we received overall great service and food.

  68. Victor Caceres

    The food is average at best,The pancakes were the driest I’ve ever had and flavorless. The “buttermilk pancakes” were obviously made with water, and not enough of it at that,I the service is pretty good, great atmosphere, but the prices are a bit high for what you get

  69. Audrey Lawson

    It was a pleasure eating at this place. The food was very delicious. I ordered a salad which was very good.

  70. Rick Gist

    Comfort food at its best. We had the Monte Cristo and the Hot Turkey sandwich. Both were top notch..

  71. Chris Cabatit

    All ages in our family love the food and atmosphere at Crystal Creek Cafe. Friendly attentive staff. Great chain of restaurants if you get a chance, try them out.

  72. Joe Kerr

    Nice place, quiet, great food, a throwback business operation in terms of service and great food, houses in a more modern building. This place has it’s regular customers as well as people who frequent the place less often. Part of a local group of restaurants that all have at least a study flow of clientele, and at times an SRO crowd even in the post pandemic era. My grandma ran a similar business operation for decades, so this place seems like an updated and similarly successful enterprise. I like the place a lot, never had a bad experience. Great menu reworks are occasionally a difference, but the food remains the same and nice twist on popular menu items as well. I give this 5 stars.

  73. Sarah K

    The food was great the service not so much. we waited for our server for 10 minutes for her to ask if we were ready to order and we were so she said she would be right with us. Another 10 minutes later she finally took our order. The food came and it was delicious crispy bacon and yummy crepes. However she forgot one of our drinks and forgot a side of bacon and we had to ask her to bring it to us. After finishing we asked for a Togo box and she went off to get it, brought our checks and no Togo box, had to ask for that again too. And out of politeness I had the decency to tip.

    Very unimpressed with the service, the food isn’t worth the terrible service. Plus, the food is just so expensive after the tip and tax we ended up paying around 30$ per person. The food is good just not 30$ good.

  74. Gabe Cabarrús

    Excellent! Same menu and ownership as the Mill Creek Cafe but in a different location. HUGE menu and portions at a very reasonable price… Comfort food, customized dishes, sandwiches, breakfast lunch and dinner at anytime and the ingredients are top tier!

  75. Jeff Goldman

    As good as the Issaquah Cafe and Saw Mill Cafe. Same menu. This isn’t foodie food, it’s really good homestyle food. Great breakfasts, served any time, too. Consistent quality and service.

  76. Ankit Swarnkar

    I was here for a lazy sunday brunch. Starting with the food, it was good. I ordered steak and egg, it was good. My friend ordered avocado toast which was nice. Pancake are totally worth it. I tried the lemon and blueberry one. Taking about the atmosphere you will get diner atmosphere here. Regarding the service, wait time is high for sure, the service is slow, we waited a long time for order, getting our bill or waiting for them to collect it. Overall good experience from diner chain.

  77. Manny

    Decent brunch spot and tasty bloody Mary’s. Good for toddlers and large parties. It’s my last minute when I get the urge to go out for brunch with the family spot

  78. Greg Hernandez

    We did a takeout order. Great food but you pay enough to justify it.

  79. Randy Gemar

    We love a Sunny Summer Sunday here. Enjoy a great date and then head to the Woodinville Wine district.

  80. matt horan

    Get the Meatloaf, awesome meal.

  81. Shirley Simpkins

    Great food, service, and atmosphere.

  82. Bri G

    I came to have dinner and this was my second time Cedric waited on us. He remembered our order to a T (I get my food with special requests), and even remembered my son’s juice request from last time, which I didnt even remember he had requested 😂😂😂
    It was a very, very good experience being waited on by Cedric, he was very attentive, and friendly not just with us, with other patrons as well I noticed. If I could I would give him 10 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  83. J.M. Jaco

    Menu is full coffee shop/diner fare with some thoughtful variations. Very pleasant service and well-prepared, tasty food. Quiet layout so conversations aren’t overshadowed by room noise.

  84. John Perez

    Best breakfast I’ve had in years

  85. Hector Velez Cruz

    The place offers a traditional dinner experience. Food was good, service was great and the ambiance was ok.

  86. Scott Pederson

    Amazing late breakfast!

  87. Evy Shao

    Ahhh I love your monte Cristo!! Best in Washington

  88. Richard Sharp

    My egg was a little over done so within minutes they brought out another one and added it to my plate but not to the bill. Very nice.

  89. Breanna Post

    Didn’t realize this is a sister of 2 of my other fave breakfast places. Once I realized that it makes sense why I instantly loved it.

  90. Raye Smith

    The food, service and just overall experience at crystal Creek Cafe is just out of this world. We’ve been coming here quite awhile for breakfast and we’re looking forward to many more visits in the future ☺️

  91. Daniel Hodges

    Cute theme, good food. Didn’t wait long even when they were busy.

  92. Robert Price

    Our favorite neighborhood diner!! Go in and ask for Sarah or Cedric they are our two personal favorites in the restaurant!!

  93. Charlotte Smith

    Favorite place for any meal. Been going there over 20yr and it’s always been fantastic food, service, and employees.

  94. Crispy Jell_O (Joe)

    After trying multiple restaurants after moving to the area last November, we finally found one that we love! Sarah and Cedric provide some of the best service we have ever had. The atmosphere is relaxed but it can get quite loud when they are busy. The longest we have had to wait is 30 minutes, but you don’t even have to wait that long if you put your name on the waiting list through their website! We put our name on the list and then drive from Juanita Beach and we’re usually here just as they’re calling our name! We’re have tried most of the breakfast items and write a few of the lunch items. We have never been disappointed in the taste, quality, or quantity of the food!

  95. Steve Asplund

    Crystal Creek Cafe is a great local restaurant that is well known for providing delicious food and hospitable service in the neighborhood. We were pleased with the menu choices, how quickly our meals were cooked, served and tasted!! The house was packed the day we were there, so we opted to eat in their bar, another option if the dining room of the restaurant is full. The locals know this is a great place, and now that us out-of-towners know the secret, we will definitely be back fo another treat!
