We stopped there twice (once for breakfast and once for lunch). Both times, the food was very good, the ambiance enjoyable, and the service friendly. The only drawback is that it can take longer than would be expected to get your coffee or food. So,...More

We stopped here for lunch, based on location and reviews. We arrived a little before noon, so we had no wait to place our order and food was prepared promptly. Woman at the counter was very helpful and patient as we figured out what we...More

We arrived at this cafe about one half hour before they were closed and the food was all but gone to previous customers. We were fortunate to be able to order the Reubens. Fantastic! The pastrami was super lean and tasty, the cheese perfectly melted,...More

Found this place on TA and was not disappointed. Great food that is reasonably priced. Also, if you are looking for a good coffee, this is one of the best we had in the US (Aussies will know what I mean)

Tunnel Creek is a great place to get breakfast and/or coffee. It is a cute building and the people are super friendly. The menu is limited but they have enough to please most people. I’ve had the breakfast sandwich (on English muffin) and the protein...More

We ate here after a long hike. We were starving and food was delicious. They custom made a vegan smoothie for my daughter. They are very receptive to substitutions for special tastes. Food was fresh and delicious. My only complaint is that the avocado in...More

Although it had some steep prices in my opinion, the food was decent. Place got a little busy as it must be on some sort of biking/hiking trailhead. Kinda tight in the dining area with all the people in there.

The Tunnel Creek Cafe is located directly in line of major road construction, so it's not the easiest place to get to. Going south, you're better off parking on the side of the highway to avoid crossing traffic. This place is friendly, clean, and pretty...More
