It was OK

My friend and I stopped here for lunch. I got the soup and salad bar. I had the shrimp soup which I was told was a new item. It was delicious. The salad bar was your typical greens and an array of other items. It was $13.00. I was told to fill my plate because there was no going back... read more

We arrived early at the Pike St. Market and looked for a place to have breakfast. Sound View Cafe was an excellent choice that we considered to be a surprise treat. It was very clean. Food is ordered at the front counter, then they deliver it to you at your table. The Salmon Hash was excellent and the portion was... More

We stopped in here while exploring Pikes Market. The meal was OK. The service OK. neither was special. The view on the other-hand was great. I got a Salmon sandwich that cost 13.00. I thought it was a little pricey for what you got. The baked fries were good but you only get a small amount.

The view is OK, but being one level lower than the "top level" places in the market, it is somewhat obstructed by the ugly buildings across the street. We sat at a window table in the back, and it was a bit cramped. French toast was OK but not great. In this place, you order at the counter (and pay)... More

Recommended by one of the nearby store owners who is an old acquaintance of our sister-in-law’s family, our group of 12 was able to squeeze in for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We had to bus our own tables with dry napkins which left the surfaces sticky. The clam chowder was pretty good, but I had to pick... More

Stopped here for lunch. Ordered fish chowder and half a turkey sandwich. The soup was watery with no fish. Sandwich had one small piece of turkey on it and the bread was enormous. Just all bread. One small slice of turkey.

Breakfast on a sleepy Saturday morning with fog on the harbor was quite peaceful. Food was a good value and service was great. You order at the counter, and they bring it out. Good service and food... recommended for a casual visit.

My husband and I both agree that we had the best breakfasts ever here! I had the eggs Benedict with salmon and he had the crab cake frittata. The hollandaise sauce, salmon, and eggs for my Benedict were all fresh and expertly prepared. Even the home fries, made with red potatoes, were great. Coupled with the great views, this little...
