The food was excellent and the view of the sound is amazing. We ordered our food at the counter then picked out a table next to the windows for a panaramic view of the water and sound. I got the chowder and a salad and both were fresh and homemade with ingredients right from the attached pike place market.

When we arrived at the Market, we were hungry and immediately started looking for a place to eat. I have to admit, we were looking for one of the higher ranked restaurants in the Market but we were glad to find the Sound View. We both had some clam chowder and split an crab cake entree. Both of us agreed... More

The food was fine, but the wait after being seated was too long, and it was not that crowded. The waitress forgot to bring the soup, and somehow forgot to substitute veggies for rice. Very casual.

We stopped in for lunch and had the club sandwich - highly recommend it, one of the best clubs I've had in as long as I can remember. The weather in Seattle has been perfect during our visit and the view was incredible from the cafe which is situated near the fish market in Pikes market. Try the club!

Enjoyed a great view of the setting sun and some really good seafood. The place is very small and the service was a little slow but a nice way to spend an hour relaxing and eating.

Traveling with family who have a variety of food preferences, the menu offered enough choices for everyone. I completely loved my lentil soup and my sautéed vegetables. The service was friendly and helpful, and our waiter had a great personality. If you are looking for a place to step away from the market, sit down & relax, this is a... More

Our tour guide from Seattle Free Walking Tours told us about this place and said to try the salmon chowder... IT WAS DELICIOUS!

Every time we're in Seattle, we make sure to stop by and have the clam chowder in the bread bowl. If you time it correctly, you can get a table by the window and look over the sound. Fun place to eat when at Pike Place.

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.
