Really good food! Healthy, fresh, and delicious. This is a family owned restaurant, and you can tell they really love what they do!

Best food ever!

One of the best Ethiopian restaurants in Seattle. It's in the Madrona area. You must stop there and have a meal.

Really good food! Not super saucy just great quality meat and veggies for you to wrap up and savor. Highly recommend! We live it here and brunch is fantastic too! The best frittatas of your life.

I LUV their stuffed magically-roasted potatoes, with yummy sauce. A regular for me and mine : )

Not for everyone. Just those who are interested in a homey atmosphere with a slightly international twist and lots of old-fashioned-just-plain-good-home style cooking. The coffee is to die for. Love this place. Stay away if you’re looking for McDonald’s or some toney high brow plates. You can’t appreciate the rich goodness of real food.

Went for brunch. Really average food, slow service, friendly staff.

I love Cafe Soleil, everything from the interior to the food to the service. I came with my parents on a Sunday afternoon an hour before they closed to set up for dinner. The inside is very beautiful, a lot of sunlight and older decor that creates a very welcoming and comfortable environment, I liked it a lot. It's perfect for a nice date. The food itself was very good as well. They were unfortunately out of salmon, but we came after their lunch rush so it was understandable. I ended up ordering their Pasta with spinach and Fresh Tomatoes, a nice serving with very fresh ingredients. It was very tasty and the bread they served the pasta with was also delicious. I will most definitely have to come back and try their Pasta with salmon and red sauce (my first choice). My parents' meals were also very good and they enjoyed it a lot. Service was very welcoming and friendly. We were greeted by a very kind woman and Tony was our waiter/server who helped us out during our meal. Tony was awesome, his warm and inviting hospitality was the cherry on top of our dining experience. Thanks Cafe Soleil!

I loved it. The food was great, the service was great. And, unlike the place down the block, there's no wait for a table. Come eat here.

This Madrona neighborhood corner restaurant has been our family's go-to Sunday brunch spot for a few years. The American breakfast food is consistently high quality and very tasty. Good coffee too. I always get a breakfast Scramble and my sister gets 2 (yes, 2) shrimp croissant sandwiches. The kids like the French toast, which is very good as well. A good family friendly place in a relaxing and not crowded setting. Note: The Hi Spot a few doors down has never impressed me, despite the go here instead.

We went to the Madrona area to eat at a specific restaurant, which shall remain nameless. After waiting 45 minutes to be told they had a new chef who never experienced Sunday brunch crowds,the kitchen was backed up and it would be another 45 minutes before being served, we appreciated her honesty and decided to leave. Just a few doors down was Cafe Soliel. There was no line and some empty tables so we decided to stay. At that same moment, quite a few other people waiting at the other restaurant came over. Three of my group ordered the potatoes with different meats. I had the salmon and it came with a dollop of sour cream. The flavors were unique and simply delicious. Cafe Soliel was a great alternative. A shout out to Zander who waited on us and most everyone there. Great service and he was excellent at managing the sudden crowd.


Trash food but delicious utensils.

Breakfast scrambles and frittatas are delicious! Cozy and inviting. Kuri and her friendly, personable staff are just the icing on the cake.

I’ve eaten here many times, and I love it! Best Ethiopian food in Seattle. Order dinner family style and try all of the dishes. Love the yellow split pea, greens and everything else! Great frittatas. Brunch is great, too!
