A fabulous place for breakfast with killer views. Don't miss it. And be patient. This isn't fast food, but it is good food.

We went on a weekday around 3pm and got horrible service. It took 15 minutes to order/pay and then over a half hour to get our food. Funny thing is we only ordered burgers, all cooked the same! Food had been sitting under the heat lamps for a while, and the fries weren't even warm when we got the food.... More

Had the veggie burger and it was great! There was a great looking salad bar available for my health conscious folks!

We were playing tourist and just wanted a quiet spot for breakfast at Pike Place Market. Sound View Cafe was perfect. We stumbled upon it after watching some fish fly at the nearby Fish Market and it was great. We were there early (before 8am) and the place was packed by 9. The food was excellent and the view could... More

Pike Place Market is a must on any visit to Seattle and after seeing the fish throwing we noticed this little cafe. The salad bar looked very good but we were after breakfast. We luckily got a seat by the window, the view is really good. You place your order at the counter and when your name is called they... More

My husband and I were in town for our anniversary and decided to eat here. Upon entering the restaurant I noticed it seemed small and a perfect place for our breakfast. We got a window seat. The view of the Seattle Great Wheel was wonderful. I watched the boats and the ocean. It was a very nice atmosphere. We sat... More

We really enjoyed out meal here. We love the whole Pike Market experience. This is the 1st time we've tried this spot and are so glad we did. Even gladder that we got there when we did! We didn't have to wait but the line was long when we got our food. We will definitely go back!

There is something for everyone on this menu. My son had the crab cakes, my daughter had the chicken quesadilla and I had the clam chowder and a salad. We were all very pleased with our selection. The view of Puget Sound is great from a window side table and our server was pleasant and cheerful. Would certainly recommend this... More

Pike's Place Market is one the major attractions in downtown Seattle, and is a must see for anyone that's visiting. This out of the way cafe is on the "main" street level down side hallway. The food is basic, but very good. They have a variety of soups daily (can be served in a sourdough bread bole), fresh salad bar... More

Pike Place Market is a must in Seattle. It sells everything from ear-rings, clothes of all sorts to figs, magnificent flowers and of course fish. Do go and see The Fish Throwers (I'll say no more). Near the fish throwers - down a decline - is this hideaway cafe. Markets and Cafes are often synonymous with 'naff'...but we found that... More
