We live in the area but when we do downtown stays, we always eat breakfast here. It's filled with regulars, sea merchants, tourists alike. Don't go here for a quick, fancy meal. Go here to take in the views, wrap your hands around a good cup of coffee, pile on the omelettes, pancakes, French toast and traditional fare. There is a decent salad bar if you prefer. It is typically crowded, can be slow, but such a slice of true iconic Seattle. Relax and take in the ambiance.

We arrived on an early flight and visited Pike Market. We were hungry and found the clam chowder and salmon chowder in bread bowls to be just right. Service was quick and we had great views.

Food smells good, but I can’t tell you how the food taste as I am getting ready to walk on this place.

Went for brunch, mid week, with friends who had recommended the cafe. I would not have found it without them as it is tucked away below the market. The views from the cafe are great, looking out across Puget Sound.

The food is nothing special, but, it was the location that made the place.

You order from the counter, then the food is served by the waiter/ waitress. We had the breakfast, but, there were lots of other choices for lunch etc. Considering this is under Pike Place Market I was amazed it was not very busy and we had no problem getting a seat, though we couldn't get one by the window.

The service was very good. We had clam chowder in a bread bowl. The chowder was average. My 14 year old son had a burger which was pretty big. He said it tasted good,but the fries were just okay.

I had the salmon and vegetables. The portion of salmon was pretty small for the price, and although grilled was pretty greasy. The vegetables were fresh and cooked well, but could have used more seasoning. The rice was slightly overcooked.
