VERY BAD TREATMENT TODAY! We eat at this restaurant at least two weekend days a month if not more. TWICE now we have sat at the counter and received NO service and ended up walking out. Today was especially annoying. As we wait patiently for the counterspace to be cleared after a previous couple left another customer shows up AFTER US, sits down next to us, his place setting is clean and ready, we are still waiting for the counter to be cleared for us (2-3 minutes).. Waitress appears, pours the NEW customer a cup of coffee and chats for a moment, takes his order, and walks away. Two other workers appear and we still are not recognized. Never again. We have seen this before with other customers. Seems the ones who are known recieve special treatment. Sorry if we prefer to not socialize with the staff, but we are, or were, long time local loyal customers. We won't be back to any of the restaurants including Woodinville Cafe, or Mukilteo Speedway Cafe.. Very frustrating.. Drive a little west to Kirkland and enjoy top notch service at Hectors.
