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

Hidden in a back room ay the Pike Market is this little gem. Get away from the crazy hustle and noise for good food and great views! The shrimp bisque and albacore tume salad were a bargain given the view.

Pike Place on a summer's afternoon has an awful lot of people, and one has to wait a longish while in line waiting to sit down for a bite. But once you get your little plate here, it's very pleasant.

This was a nice break while exploring Pikes market. The bread bowls with clam chowder were tasty. It gets a bit crowded at lunchtime
