This is a smallish place with table service where you go to the counter to place your order which is brought to your table when it’s ready. A simple system that works well. The menu is extensive, with a lot of fish and seafood.

Fresh food. Good selection. We ate there twice. They have seating with a beautiful view of the bay. The salad and soup bar looked great as they were setting it up.

Fortunately this is not the best known cafe in Pike Place Market, so you can often eat at a window seat with superb views of the Sound and the ferries and mountains. I've only ever eaten one dish here - the Clam Chowder in a...More
