A solid good - not great

Nice views, nice staff, definitely Seattle healthy, no pork sausage or bacon only turkey. Salad bar looks good but did not indulge. Not a must do but will do in a pinch.

Had lunch there on our visit to Pike's Market. Service was excellent. The food was high quality and we received it quickly. We had seafood which was fresh tasting an prepared well. They also had some nice Washington State Wines.

Located in Pike Place Market as you enter the middle of the market off a walkway heading toward the water. Ate there for lunch. Varied selection of soups. Menu filled with goodies from sandwiches to plates. Fish and meat dishes available with a good selection at the salad bar. Staff helpful and personable. Moderately priced with great views of the...

Great place to sit with a view. Clam Chowder was very good. Options for seafood are limited, but they do have a selection. Down the ramp from where they throw the fish. Many places will not have enough seating, this place has a view and seats. No french fries, but they have potato wedges. They use Hunts ketchup and not... More

Stopped in for breakfast. Limited menu, Had French toast which was very good, had strawberries, bananas and whipped cream on side. Very nice presentation. Disappointed that there was only turkey bacon or sausage.

Located in Pike Place Market over looking Puget Sound. All food is made from scratch and is very tasty. As a result of being made from scratch, sandwiches and hot meals take a bit longer to prepare but are well with the wait. My wife ordered the seafood platter and was not disappointed.

This is our go to place when we visit the market. Food is fresh, and the service is great. It's a tiny place, so it's difficult to get around if you're a bigger person. You order at the counter, and they deliver the food to you. Excellent place to grab a bite and rest for a few minutes during your... More

We ate on a Sunday in October - the place was full. You get a menu, sit down and decide, order at the counter and they deliver the food to you. Self serve (and unlimited) coffee and water. We liked the system and loved the food. Salmon hash and salmon benedict were the best. Even the simple eggs, bacon and... More

Hubby wanted to try someplace new in the Market for lunch on a recent outing to Seattle. We ran across this place and decided to try it. We weren't disappointed. He had a seafood soup, which he liked so much he said he was tempted to lick the bowl. I had a very yummy chicken ceasar salad, which was large... More

We popped into the Sound View Cafe for a breakfast on an exceptionally rainy Seattle morning during our visit last month. We wanted a view despite the downpour outside and this seemed like the perfect little spot. I ate an Eggs Benedict, which was delicious and HUGE. The views, as promised, were great. My only negative feedback is that it... More
