Diner Reviews
  • "Cheeky Cafe has all the right things. Excellent food, a zillion choices, helpful but not overbearing staff, fair prices (for a lot of food), and of course, comfortable atmosphere. This isn't somewhere you take a date to impress them, it's somewhere you take your date to eat, relax, enjoy your time together. Extremely and highly recommended. Every time I come here I think "I need to come here more often." Neighborhood Gem best describes it."

  • "I was not sure what to expect when looking through the Cheeky Cafe's website, but the menu looked good, so my cousin, and my 93 year old Mom tried it. Truthfully, the only negative I can find is parking. It's a tough area to find any, but look for it anyway, because this place is GREAT! I almost hate to say that, as it is not that big, and could fill up quickly. I had Wendy's fried rice. I am Asian, and this fried rice was the best I ever had. Most things have an asian twist, in a good way. Portions are huge, and our server was one you would leave a bigger tip, if you could afford to, he was fantastic, low key, knowledgeable, patient (Mom's hearing is not good), and attentive, but not overly so. It was an amazingly good surprise!"

  • "I have been to cheeky cafe a couple times and everything has been tasty. My favorites, mostly because it has been all I've tried, appetizers: sweet potato fries, chicken wings and dumplings. Main dishes: fried rice, moco loco meatloaf and the fish and chips. The common theme is generous portions at reasonable cost. Ambiance is unremarkable, the food and value are great. Looking forward to my next visit!"

  • "I do love Cheeky Cafe, but twice now having brunch there has set off my gallbladder and resulted in a night of pain."

  • "We had a great brunch at this neighborhood cafe. The food was delicious. We tried the chicken fried steak (some of the best that we have had), quiche with salad, meatloaf loco moco and the BLEET. The only problem that we had was the service of the food took a long time (Perhaps it was due to having a large group(10) and it was on a Sunday)."

  • "Located near the Pratt Fine Art's Center this place is awesome. The food is wonderful and the service great. Customers interact with one another openly - not like other places where one can feel the seattle freeze. As an aded bonus, unbeknownst to my date and I, jazz musicians were playing there as part of the Jazz Walk in the area. I do however recommend reservations as the place is not that big and it can fill up fast."

  • "Hubby (vegetarian) and I (anything a child would like) went here on a whim. What a great little cafe. Our server was all smiles and kept saying "awesome", attentive service but not overbearing. The menu was EXTENSIVE. Hubby said veggie food was a little on the bland side but he usually likes things much spicier than most. Rice & beans were plain but the mushrooms were really good! As far as my [child] meals... Holy Heaven! The "plain" grilled cheese sandwich was made with good cheddar with real garlic butter on perfect bread. The French Dip was piled high with non-fatty roast beef, cheese (onions available) came with homemade au jus. To DIE for. It was quiet in there at 6:30pm. Made for an extremely nice evening. Would highly recommend."

  • "Great little cafe like eatery. We were definitely hungry upon arrival! I had the "Onesies," which was 1 egg, 1 bacon, and 1 cheeky cake(pancake stuffed with berries, upgrade) and the Mr had the "Spam and Eggs." Each meal was plenty for us. From our window seat we could stare off in the distance and see the water. The staff were attentive and always in sight to wave down if we needed something more. Definitely a place to try if you have the time!"

  • "Just went for an early dinner before a Garfield High School event. Delicious fish and chips with yummy sweet potato fries. Others enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich (same yummy fries). And grandpa enjoyed his meat loaf and mashed potatoes with a nice glass of wine. Nice open floor plan could easily accommodate a large group although it was starting to fill up with locals and families by 6:30pm. Our new favorite spot."

  • "Sweet staff but felt more like a neighborhood Denny's diner than a more seattle foodie venue."

  • "My family and I were headed into the city for the day and we were looking for a late morning pit stop. I think that the Cheeky Cafe is one of my all time best finds. The food was comfortable and tasty... the atmosphere was neighboorhoody and artsy... the waitstaff were spot on! And then there's Cheeky Bread... who figured out you could do that to improve french toast. Our eggs were cooked to perfection, our son was entertained by coloring a design he could tape up in the restaurant , and the bacon was like BUTTER. We will be back soon!"

  • "The meatloaf moco-loco was really great, and the pancakes were arguably the best I've ever had."

  • "Has a variety of food items that are different and tasty. I would go again and recommend for others who does not want the same ole same menu items. As it gets later in the eve., after 6:00, would be good to have more than 1 waitress incase you are in a hurry like we were to catch a play. Thanks! Enjoyed the food; I had the dumplings and friend had tofu steak, fried yams. Delicious!"
