Repeat customer time and again both takeout and dine-in. Their staff is always courteous and friendly. I have never been disappointed with anything I've ordered there, in quality and in portions. Highly recommend the milkshakes.

Review №2

Decided to give the cafe another try since I hadn't been here for several years. I was pleasantly surprised! Food and service were great! Andrew, our waiter recommended the California scramble with strawberry crepes with whipcream. Really enjoyed it. Portions are large. 1/2 size would have been perfect. The cinnamon rolls are huge! One can feed a table of four if you order one with your breakfast. Menu has lots of options. Price was very reasonable. We will be back.

Review №3

Not only was the food delicious, but everyone was so friendly. Everyone was masked and spacing was good. I'll be back.

Review №4

Many years coming here. Started trying new foods I'd never try. And yet every time I'm in love. The food can do no wrong. And the staff is amazing.

Review №5

Great diner experience. The food is excellent as well as the atmosphere. Would totally go back again.Their specialty = breakfast.

Review №6

Use to be 5 stars, food isn't that great anymore. Not sure what happened or changed since my original 5 star rating. Last few times we have visited the food has been burnt or tasted like it was poorly prepared.

Review №7

Amazing!!! Love the food and the staff here so much! I also love how friendly the staff is! I struggle with talking due to a disability and they didn't rush me at all!! 10/10 would recommend for any family!

Review №8

Review №11

It was delicious and quick service!! Very crowded on a Sunday which was to be expected but they were great!

Review №12

This place was great. Highly recommend. Side note: WA needs more dinners like this.

Review №13

The burger dip was very greasy, the ajus was not hot, and it tasted as if it was cooked on a dirty grill. The fries smelled as if the were cooked with the fish.It use to be a favorite place.

Review №14

Great service! Phenomenal breakfast food! I highly recommend Crystal Creek Cafe!

Review №15

Beautiful restaurant with excellent service and outstanding food. The location is gorgeous and the waterfall across the street was enjoyable before and after dinner. Everyone in out party of six enjoyed their food and the dessert was incredible. Highly recommend a visit for a fancy dinner or occasion worthy of celebration.

Review №16

We come here more often then I care to admit but it's always just so good. I feel at home and I love love it here. Thanks friends. See you soon!

Review №17

One of our favorite spots to eat any time of day! We like the bar area, and the menu is fantastic, along with the consistency of their great food which includes Gluten Free!!

Great food, very nice people, and nice atmosphere. Love the theme. I'm from Marysville going to a doctors appointment, so I'll be back.

The food here is great. Enjoy your $18 patty melt!

Review №27

The American diner lives in Bothell! Relaxed setting, good service and food options! Prices were fine. If you're craving the classics, give them a shot!

Review №28

Great breakfast location but also serves classic homestyle lunch and dinner dishes

Review №29

Good pot roast. Good prices.

Review №30

My hubby and I were looking for a great place for breakfast, and we found it! Delicious food and good-size portions. Wait for food wasn't too bad either. Planning to go back again soon!

Review №31

Great food, well priced, large portions. Comfortable atmosphere and accommodating staff. They never rush you out no matter how long you sit there and chat. It's the perfect place to meet friends for a meal, a snack or just drinks and conversation.

Review №32

My husband and I went here on a whim for a birthday brunch and we were very impressed. The menu has tons offerings including classics like pancakes/French toast/egg/bacon and fun options like different varieties of French toast, filled crepes, and omelets etc. It was hard to decide what to get because everything sounded amazing.I ordered a half of both the almond crunch French toast and California omelet. It was the best breakfast I have ever eaten. The French toast came with whipped cream and *real* maple syrup. The omelet was my favorite and I've been craving it ever since I had it over a week ago! It was light and fluffy with tomatoes, bacon, green onions, cheddar cheese and AVOCADO. It was so delicious.My husband got the cream cheese filled strawberry crepes; I don't remember what it was called. They were heavenly.This place will definitely be a birthday breakfast tradition for all in our family as well as a regular go to place for delicious food and great service.

Review №33

This cafe has pretty interior.They have so many different menus to try out!They have shaved Ice, waffles, cotton candy, and many cookies!Also, the owner and servers are really nice and awesome.I hope you have a chance to come here and have some fun!

Review №34

First time I came here to take my breakfast order, the food here was really delicious, and the staff were very welcoming. Recommended.

Review №35

Food taste is not great. Just tried this place after seeing some good yelp reviews but, disappointed with the taste and quality of food. I tried their daily special Crab cake Eggs benedict with hashbrown, Triple fruit waffle and Fish tacos with pinapple. All are below average. U have many best cafe's out there in Bothell which are much better than this.Dont get confused with my food pictures. They are good looking and am good at capturing them.

Review №36

Usually love this place. Customer service was substandard this time. Ordered sweetener for tea 3 times. Bill was not combined correctly. Food was excellent!

Review №37

Great food and service ...very nice atmosphere as well

Review №38

Great drinks and food served promptly.

Review №39

Was pleasantly surprised when our 25 minute wait turned into just a 5 minute wait. Service was on top of things and my coffee cup was never empty. Great breakfast tasty waffles. Will go back. Liked the forties theme.

Review №40

Great food! Great friendly service!

Review №41

Looove the food!!! Exceptionally pleasant servers who go the extra mile, frequently checking in on how we were doing. We are handicap patrons and were treated with exceptional respect. Timely service w/out compromise to quality cooked food. All 4 of us in our party ordering breakfasts with high end color and presentation. Also, not a hint of servers trying to rush us out. Don't be intimidated by the crowd. Service moves fast. People know where the good restaurants are and that's where they go. Wheelchair parking available.

Review №42

Sunday breakfast was outstanding, first time we got in without a wait. Really nice greeter and server (Sarah), tons on the menu to choose from and some with half I had the Migas half-portion w/avocado which was fantastic, and husband had the Jo special which, finally a dish that was too much food for him - I'll post pictures. Big waiting line when we left at 11 a.m.We've enjoyed a couple dinners and lunches here as we live in the area, but mostly we go for weekend breakfast. Nice and varied menu, never been disappointed.

Review №43

Great place, there open during these hard times with a reduced menu but food and service are still great.

Review №44

This place sucks, we were waiting for over an hour and they kept letting in people who came way after us. Terrible costumer service.

Review №45

Excellent food. Outstanding service (the server even applied the senior discount without our asking for it - we didn't even know there was one!) Wonderful ambiance. Very clean. It would be hard to choose from their excellent menu and specials except that the berry blintzes are our absolute favorites. Add a side of bacon and eggs, oh, my, a meal fit for a king!

Review №46

Good food good service fair price

Review №47

Good food fair prices and very clean

Review №48

Great social distancing practices and easy to get onto the waiting list before you even arrive.

Review №49

Been here for 12+years, moving out of the area in a couple weeks and just now found this spot. A breakfast place like this will make a guy not want to leave. Great food, great staff, great atmosphere. Decent parking goes a long way around Seattle these days as well. We'll be stopping back in on road trips North for sure!

Review №50

One of so few breakfast places. Well worth the wait when you want a great diner breakfast

Review №51

Okay at best. Service friendly food just so so

Review №52

Great food and good service.

Review №53

Good old fashioned American food. Covid procedures interfere with good service.

Review №54

This is a comfort food place. Leave your calorie counting at the door. The potato pancakes are fantastic and a must try for your palate. The service is very good even during peak periods. Enjoy.

Review №55

My fiancee and I come here pretty regularly. Katie is by far our favorite server. She has been a great hostess and treats us like long time friends every visit. She is the reason we choose to sit in the bar instead of the restaurant. Thanks Katie for the awesome and friendly service! You rock!

Review №56

The food was decent but nothing to write home about, service about the same.

Review №57

Excellent Monte Cristco did not dissapoint

Review №58

The food here is excellent, I'll give it that for certain. However, the staff seemed inattentive and took a long time to take our order. They weren't even half full, but we had to flag down two waitresses to get our boxes to leave, ended up only getting one box instead of the two like we asked.The food is absolutely divine though.

Review №59

Lots of airplane decorations and the food is in large servings and delicious.

Review №60

I arrived at about 10 minutes to 8 on a Saturday. There was plenty of room, but within 10-15 minutes the place was packed.I sat at the counter and ordered the corned beef hash. The service was good, but the food was not.The corned beef hash was not what I would even consider to be corned beef hash. It was their regular hash browns with some dried-out cubes of what was purportedly corned beef and some coarsely chopped green onion throwing in. All mixed together in an absolutely flavorless dried out heap what was mostly just their hash browns.I give them one star for now. Tomorrow I'm meeting a group of family members there for breakfast so we'll have an opportunity to try a number of different menu items. I'll update my review afterwards.

Review №61

The California omelette is absolutely delicious! The coffee here is great, not bitter like other places. I love coming here

Review №62

Very good food and great customer service.

Review №63

This place is always Amazing!! The food is homemade and delicious!! I highly recommend eating here but know you are paying a premium for this delicious food.

Review №64

Awesome food and service.

Review №65

Good food and fast service

Review №66

If you get nothing else here, get the pancakes. I have yet to have a bad dish served here, all the food is hot and delicious. All of the employees succeed at making eating here an enjoyable experience. Seriously, try the pancakes.

Review №67

First time there. I had California Eggs Benedict. Get it withOUT the onions, you'll like it better, but despite that, it was very good. Service was quick, prices reasonable.AND! They serve breakfast all day!

Review №68

Lots of choices, great food, good for kids, great decor

Review №69

A friendly establishment with all the dishes you'd expect of a classic diner. It, and it's sister restaurant in Mill Creek, have been standards of our family for 8 years now. Everything in the menu is good, though only a few things (like the turkey) are truly great. It has for everyone and everyone goes home satisfied.

Review №70

Love Crystal Creek. It's the best place in the Bothell area for breakfast. The food is always good quality and fresh. The staff is friendly and we like the WWII aircraft hanger motif.

Review №71

Good food, fair prices.

Review №72

Love this place for breakfast, one of my favorites and the staff is amazing nice.

Review №73

Please please please don't lay off the cooks here. This is by far the best establishment of the chain. I'll be back the day you open.

Review №74

They are always on top of things, hostesses being very pleasant. The amount of food per dollar it's all worth the experience. Comfort breakfast food is why I come here personally. They also have several locations (different names) across county.

Review №75

Wow!! I'm so impressed with how great the food and service is here!! I had to give them five stars before I even finished my meal!!!

Review №76

Sat in the bar. Waitress didn't look at me the whole time we were there. She only spoke to my boyfriend, except when we were ordering. Then she didn't ask me about soup, salad, sides or anything else. Never refilled my drink, but he got refills. I usually tell people to avoid this place and the one in Woodinville.

Review №77

Amazing Chicken Cesar Wraps!

Review №78

Very disappointed. Kept getting worse. My food was my Benedict muffin you couldn't cut. Ate what I could. When they asked how it was I let them know nicely and they proceeded to argue with me telling me it was warm and that even though you couldn't cut it to eat it that it was normal. 15.00 for a plate you can't eat

Review №79

Amazing service, delicious and filling food, definitely coming back!

Review №80

Pumpkin pancakes were good.

Review №81

The best eat out breakfast ever! The avocado on toast was amazing and my hubby's food was great too! He had a manly sized breakfast with waffles(I love the waffles with warm syrup) and on the side and we shared the corned beef hash which is ALL GOOD! I will crave this for life! Our server was so sweet!

Review №82

Great food, gracious hospitality and low prices

Review №83

Nicely themed cafe. Food is diner quality, but not bad. Been there about 3 times and every server is a new experience. Easy on a budget also.

Review №84

Food is amazing and ridiculously fresh. The service is sometimes a bit slow, but this isn't a cheap, fast food joint. You're getting homemade food, made to order. The ambience is nice and perfectly suited for families.

Review №85

The service was very good here,even during the breakfast is obvious that this is a favorite place for locals because they always seem to have a maybe 2min wait if that but it is well worth it.i suggest this place if you are in the area.The food here is excellent and the staff here is courteous and efficient..There is also a bar section there,however i have yet to check that out since ive only eaten breakfast here...

Review №86

My husband and I are regulars here. It took a year of searching for our favorite spot, but we are ALWAYS happy at CCC. the staff is wonderful and hardworking, plus the food is always great. We love sitting in the bar area since it's adults only and Celeste is the best server (we already miss Tomas, part of the dynamic duo!). Everyone is wonderful and we love the aviation themed decor. They are very busy on weekends so get there before 8am or after 11am for the shorter wait times for the dining area.

Review №87

Very friendly, food was good. What more to ask for? And I got a senior discount

Review №88

The service was great, even with a very full restaurant. The menu made it difficult to decide what to eat. So many great choices. Everything we got tasted great! We shared. The atmosphere is clean and comfortable.

Review №89

The food and service was quite excellent! Our server Cheryl was friendly, efficient, and timely with anything that we needed. I would definitely dine there again when I need some comfort food. The bottomless crinkle cut fries was an awesome perk as well.

Review №90

Good food, good service solid 4

Review №91

Great service. They know how to handle the busy crowds. Coffee is great! Great menu selection. Lots to choose from.

Review №92

Love it! Get here early on the weekend or you'll be waiting an hour for a table. But even then it's worth it! Great food, great service, and great atmosphere. Crystal Creek Cafe is part of a small chain of restaurants all offering a different feel. Having just moved from Redmond where we have two different options to go to, my family enjoys Crystal Creek Cafe quite a bit.

Review №93

Damn good food and delicious bloody mary's

Review №94

Nice place for a good meal. Cozy atmosphere. Attentive staff.

Review №95

Love this place! Food is great and large portions. They serve all the home "comfort foods" along with burgers, salads, everything you can think of....including delicious pies! Service is always good with a very comfortable "home" feeling. Prices are reasonable, and parking is mostly good - just one handicap spot. You won't be disappointed at Crystal Creek!

Review №96

One of the most consistently excellent food stops. I've liked 90% of what I've ordered.

Review №97

I'm there right now. The food is so good it will bring a tear to your eye. If you were king of the world, you couldn't get better biscuits and gravy anywhere. I didn't want to put anything on my omelette because it was the best I ever had. I chewed every bite 100 times to savor it. My girlfriend and I agree the coconut cream pie we are eating is also the best we ever had. Really good food cooked by real people who do a really good job.

Review №98

Excellent food, service, prices. I love this Cafe!

Review №99

Food is great. Customer service was awesome, it wasn't the standard only your server helps you they all checked in on you. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the pot roast, which was great, didn't come with gravy. When I reheated the left overs and and put some homemade gravy on it and the red potatoes it was beyond great.

Review №100

Inconspicuous location that we found by chance! And now it will be a location where we will go all the time! Great staff, very friendly and the food is just fantastic, We ordered the Egg Benedict and California omelet and it was the best we had! No question. And then the pies, amazing. Highly recommend this place.
