This little cafe is almost hidden in the Outlets in Burlington,WA. Their food is homemade. That means they roast their turkey, make their own mashed potatoes, and serve dinners with fresh vegetables and a salad. I have frequented this place for several years by eating...More

I've eaten here several times, and have never been disappointed. The turkey dinner was moist, flavorful and filling. The beef dip was also tasty. Service is fairly quick and the prices are very good. The restaurant has never been busy when I've been there.

We met friends for lunch and were well tended to. Lots of coffee refills, attention to our needs but not intrusive. Meals were well prepared and tasty.

Lived in the area for almost 10 years and put up with countless mediocre diner meals before we finally found the Curious Chef. Delicious, home-made food with cheerful service and good prices. Absolutely a cut above the rest.

Freshly roasted turkey, ham, etc on site. My favorite is Eggs Benedict. They make the Hollandaise sauce fresh for each order. Wonderful moist turkey dinners. Cafe setting in Discount Mall. Relaxed setting. Great wait people. Very reasonable.
