Not So Good – Guys. You might have lines at breakfast time but don't think its for good food. There is no other breakfast place in this part of Bellevue to go to. Better to eat ceral at home. Don't waste your $$ or time. Service with attitude and sloppy sticky seats and frat house left overs.
Great old fashion breakfast – Great food! You can't go wrong. They are small old restaurant that really know how to serve breakfast. Great value.
Hashbrown Omlet – If u don't like the Pancakes, get the hashbrown omlet. That is one of the best breakfast meals I have ever had. Mad love to Chaces.
Don't waste your time – The only positive comment I can make about this place is that we went there before the crowd and didn't have to wait. I don't mind the decor, but the pancakes were flat, flavorless and dry. There was absolutely nothing memorable about the food - and if you dare to name yourself 'pancake corral' they better be memorable. I paid $3.50 for a medium glass of Minute Maid orange juice and was highly dissapointed with the whole experience.
Delicious! – I had a huge craving for pancakes/waffles a few months ago and wanted to try somewhere other than IHOP. I looked for a place nearby and found Chace's Pancake Corral and read some great reviews about it, so I decided to give it a try. Their pancakes are the FLUFFIEST pancakes I have ever had! They were delicious!
On another trip back a few weeks ago, I tried the French Toast that I had wanted to try on the first visit, and again I wasn't disappointed. Great breakfast food and very friendly atmosphere!
Great food and service – Man you guys are harsh. I know alot of things have gone down hill since Bill passed away but saying that it is awful isn't so. Just because your food doesn't taste like everywhere else doesn't make it bad. It's just not like your eggo waffles or your Denny's pancakes. You know why it tastes funny and unusual?....it's made with love.
Anything you have at home for breakfast would be better – Super friendly service. Very bland food. Dry pancakes with funny tasting butter and lowgrade syrup. $2.50 for a very small glass of orange juice from concentrate. My son, who likes any kind of pancake or waffle said his waffle tasted "wrong", I tried it and sure enough it was as dry and flavorless as the pancakes. I must say I was crushed that the food was so unimpressive as I have lived on the Eastside for years and always see people lined up to go there.
Best pancakes on Earth - period. – An absolute classic breakfast joint - I've been coming here for most of my lifetime. I've been at countless breakfast nooks and crannies all over the country, and Chace's has absolutely the best pancakes anywhere (especially the blueberry). Whatever you order, you can't go wrong - it's breakfast bliss (leave the Adkins diet at home).
While the price is right, and I can appreciate the small Mom & Pop ambiance that has been the root of its charm over the decades, I'm probably one of the few thinking they need to do at least some kind of modest expansion of facility and parking; to rid of the other abandoned structure on the lot for more parking if nothing else.
If you live as far as Tacoma or Edmonds, this place is worth the drive. If you're visiting Seattle from out of town, make it a point to stop by here.
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it," is the adage that three generations of regulars will attest to. – The Scene
Opened in 1958, Chaces is a small, one-story building whose plain exterior has been prettified by loads of hanging flowers. Inside, homey comfort rules. Ceiling fans, golf towels from around the world, Husky helmets (during football season) and family photos (including one of owner Bill Chace as a Husky crew member in 1932), serve as decor. Service is home-style and hospitable.
The menu lists eight egg dishes, four waffles and eight pancakes, plus burgers and sandwiches for lunch. Everything is prepared quickly and with practiced ease. Bargain specials, such as chicken-fried steak with two eggs or a hefty biscuit with sausage gravy, can be had for the price of a couple loads of laundry. For those with a serious pancake yen, try the combo plate of buttermilk, buckwheat, strawberry and potato cakes.
Nice and Easy – Chaces is a little spot to go when you don't want all the hype. The food is great and the service is friendly and professional. They don't hover and they don't forget about you. I would definately recommend this spot to anyone...just make sure you get there early since there is usually a line.
