Located in the Chihuly Museum it is very convenient but sandwiches are $18 an up. We had a bowl of soup and salad and it was $28. Good but other places are close by.

Loved the menu and food quality. Chihuly collections of many types are featured and on display as you eat. Loved that part. Good service too and nice, bright open atmosphere. Wouldn't miss it if I ever go back to see the glass and garden.

Very nice restaurant and staff was great! We had the root beer floats and just enjoyed people watching out the glass windows as we relaxed.

This restaurant is attached to the Chichully Museum. Each table is covered with glass and underneath is a collection of Chichully's. Such as metal soldiers. The food was good, some choices better than others. Something for everyone.

What is the best place to eat near the Space needle - Collections Cafe or are there eating places inside the Space Needle (but not the pricey restaurant on the top)?

Collections would be the best choice near the Space Needle. The Food Court in the Armory has sort of devolved into a group of generic joints, some belonging to chains, some indies. There is a booth that sells meat pies... More
