We enjoyed breakfast at this little diner-style restaurant. My daughter and I split the SOS- biscuits, gravy, hash browns and 2 eggs and ended up taking some home as well. Friendly, fast service. Highly recommend. The price was a little high for breakfast but it not if you consider how much food you are served.

As we were slowly meandering our way toward Mt. Rainier we needed a morning fuel up spot. It was a week day just before Labor Day and there was not much traffic as it was early but after the town exodus for the concrete jungle had already occurred. We pulled off of the main Hwy into downtown in hopes of... More

We had been camping and did not get to town till 11:30. We were so happy to find breakfast so late in the day. It was a funky little place filled with 50s and 60s stuff. Big portions and yummy food. Home made freezer jam! If I knew about the homemade jam I would have ordered pancakes and dround them... More

Stopped on our way to Mt Ranier in Enumclaw for breakfast. Split the breakfast sandwich and had plenty of homemade hash browns.

My boyfriend and I had a planned a day trip to hike in Enumclaw so I researched a bit looking for restaurants. The Kitchen is a very small sweet little spot that definitely gives you the breakfast at mom's house sort of feel. Not fancy but quaint. It took a little bit to get our food but well worth the...

Stopped here for breakfast on the way home from Mt Rainier. I absolutely loved the small town diner vibe at this location. The diner has a lot of random decor which I found to be entertaining and different from the norm. It was exceptionally busy due to it being July 4th parade day and this place is right on the...

Was impressed by reviews of this mainly breakfast place. I was there with a friend for lunch and she had a great chicken salad sandwich and i had an outstanding hamburger with everything on it. Would go back again

Located on Cole Street in the heart of Enumclaw, WA The Kitchen Diner serves a great Ham and Cheese Omelet with hunks of ham. Everyone in the family loved there meals and finished every bite. The waitress was great and the coffee cup was never empty.

Quirky and quaint decor. Lots of selections on the menu. The portions are large. The food, unfortunately, is just average. The hash browns lack flavor. The sausage was good. The pancakes were good. Our big disappointment was that despite charging $13-16 per plate for breakfast, no cream is provided for coffee; all they have is watered down powdered coffee "creamer".... More
