Friend of mine lives in Columbia City and loves this place. I tried this place 5 times, and the food & service keeps going downhill.

Best Comfort Food in Town 10/26/2010

I love this place! My family and I dine here at least once a month. Best place to go for a weekend brunch, but they also have amazing burgers for lunch (don't miss out on the sweet potato fries)! I like them for dinner too. When I'm really dragging, it is a great treat to sit the family around the table and enjoy a great dinner, served by the very friendly folks at Geraldine's Counter. more

Great Place for breakfast. the biscuits and jam are unreal! I've also been there for lunch and I was not let down. Worth the wait on the weekends. Pros: friendly staff, great food Cons: long wait on the weekends more

Loved IT! 3/23/2009

I went here over the weekend and had to write a review. This place is worth raving about! I can't believe how good the French Toast was and the Herbed Goat Cheese with Salmon was cooked perfectly. I am always in search for a great breakfast place and I have finally found it. Its a very happy place and the service is excellent. Portion size was right on. The owner seriously knows what he's doing when it comes to breakfast. I cant wait to go back :) Pros: Best Breakfast in Seattle more

Yummy comfort food - worth the trip to Columbia City if you are not in the area. 1/30/2009

I have been to Geraldine's twice with groups of five, once for lunch on a weekday afternoon and once for breakfast on a late Sunday morning. Both times the service was friendly, maybe a little slow but only due to how busy they are. Pros: Great service, yummy food Cons: Plan on a 15 minute wait or so more

Yummy comfort food - worth the trip to Columbia City if you are not in the area. 1/29/2009

I have been to Geraldine's twice with groups of five, once for lunch on a weekday afternoon and once for breakfast on a late Sunday morning. Both times the service was friendly, maybe a little slow but only due to how busy they are. Everyone at my table was very pleased with the menu options (vegetarians and carnivores alike!), and equally pleased with the quality of our meals and the service we received. I received prompt, friendly service whether there as a business lunch or with friends and small children. Both times everyone at the table drove out of their way to go to Columbia City and Geraldine's - worth it, we will definitely be back! Pros: Great service, yummy food Cons: Plan on a 15 minute wait or so more

Ok place if you are in Columbia City, not a place to go out of your way for. 4/10/2008

Friend of mine lives in Columbia City and loves this place. I tried this place 5 times, and the food & service keeps going downhill. Food: Good variety of breakfasty/diner food at first. Breakfast is local favorite, but have had better breakfast at Coastal Kitchen, Glo's, B&O, or Broadway Grill. Diner food selection is okay: sandwiches, salad. But last time I ate there, I found 2 hairs in my salad & the cook forgot to put the meat in the dish! Had to send back. Food is not that great, or exceptional tasting. Atmosphere: Clean, bright. Lots of babies & their stay-at-home mommies & locals. Service: The staff is super-smiley, and friendly, but they always seem to be chatting away behind the counter. I've noticed every time I'm there, customers are trying to get their attention for service and often see customers having to go UP to the counter to get their bill. Price: Dishes run $7-$11, which is normally okay, but you don't get much for what you pay for. Overall: If you live in Columbia City & have no where else to dine, this is the place for the locals to go. I would not recommend going out of your way to this place. Food is not that great tasting or that much, especially for the price you pay. more

Best for breakfast 1/10/2008

I live up the street so I eat there at least once a week. I prefer Sunday breakfast but you need to come early if waiting for a seat or crowded places bother you. Don't be in a hurry either. I love the french toast (thick and chewy), pancakes (homestyle and thick), and omeletes and egg scrambles. I think the portions are small so you end up buying a side. The bacon is thick and chewy with little fat. If doing lunch or dinner, I've enjoyed the bacon cheesebuger, chicken chutney salad, or a bowl of chili. Not everything on the menu is great so look around at other plates. The one thing that seems to be dependably, is the quality of the food and ingredients. Fresh and wholesome. Pros: breakfast, interesting people watching, good quality food Cons: parking, long wait on table and food sometimes more

Great Breakfast 8/9/2007

I have been here several times, during their breakfast and lunch times. And I must say their breakfast always leaves me wanting more. I especially enjoy their apple pancakes they are an absolute must-try! I did enjoy the gooey grilled cheese sandwich, and who could go wrong with sweet potato fries??? Overall, lunch is simply decent, nothing to right home about. Pros: Great Breakfast more

What a great place! 7/22/2007

This place is wonderful... From the staff that's busy yet always able to give top notch friendly service to the food which is delicious. My personal favorite are the biscuits and gravy! Great neighborhood feel - this place is one more great aspect to what Columbia City is growing into. more

Comfort Food & THE BEST Sweet Potatoe Fries! 7/19/2007

Personable service and YUMMY food. They have everything you might want on the menu for comfort, with a twist. Beyond the basics, a tastey treat! I am always pleasantly surprised if even just ordering a burger. Very casual atmosphere with beyond expectations food. I highly recommend it. more
