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

We met friends from out of town at the Market. They had eaten at this place the previous evening. We were given breakfast menus when we sat down and told there would be no waitress service. We were told to order at the counter. Hmm....More

I think the view would be worth any way you would have to incur. It's all about the arena!
