Out of desire to find a good breakfast spot on the Eastside in the mid 1980’s and finding few choices, Michal & Jo Ann Scott decided to start their own Cafe’ and purchased Emmilou’s in Redmond, Washington. It was in the fall of 1986 that the Village Square Cafe was opened with a 1940’s theme, an expanded menu focused on classic comfort food and a hand picked staff that understood the art of Cafe’ hospitality.
The Village Square Cafe was followed by the opening of the Issaquah Cafe (1989), Woodinville Cafe (1995), Crystal Creek Cafe (2002), Saw Mill Cafe (2005), Mukilteo’s Speedway Cafe (2007) and most recently the Sammamish Cafe (2011). The Cafes also established a bakery in the Crystal Creek Cafe that supplies all of the Cafes’ with freshly baked pies, cakes, cinnamon rolls and amazing bran muffins every day. Each store has a culinary team that cooks fresh turkeys, prime rib roasts, and prepares the most delicious scratch soups daily.
We are proud to be the place “Where it is never too late for breakfast” and our tradition of providing delicious food and amazing service continues to be our focus and our passion.
