We stumbled upon this place on accident and we're delightfully suprised. It was a few minutes after they'd opened and although we weren't really ready for lunch, as a soup lover I couldn't pass it up. The chowder and the bisque we sampled were amazing....More

We travel to New England quite a bit. Who knew you could get such great chowder on the West Coast? It was a really tasty and inexpensive lunch. We enjoyed sitting outside on a sunny, but breezy day.

The chowder here is excellent-several choices, and you really can't go wrong. You can get it served in a bread bowl as well. It was great food and made for a nice lunch on a blustery Seattle day. If you are a chowder fan, you...More

Some of the chowders have bacon and some have a pork sausage. They also have chowders with none of the above, ask your server which ones are without pork and they'll direct you to one that fits your preference. Enjoy!
