Picture a French bistro in Paris and Le Pichet is it! I had a fabulous and authentic french onion soup, accompanied by an assortment of pates with a baguette. Vraiment extraordinaire!

Lucky to find this little gem in downtown Seattle. Looks, smells and tastes like a Parisienne bistro should. The pâtés, terrines, cold cuts and cheeses are a must. Follow up with one of the house specialties and you are set. Must visit again.

The day after our wine tour... one of our group members suggested Le Panier. Well my memory being as it is (horrible) thought it was Le Pichet. I can not tell you how happy my wife and I where to find this spot. During our week stay we went back three times. Our favorite was Œufs plats, jambon et fromage.... More

Love this place. Tiny, intimate tables right next to each other just like in Paris. Excellent quiches. Great green salads. And why not have a pichet of good wine with lunch? Oh, and try the fries. Delicious.

My friend and I were wandering in search of a great local restaurant to celebrate our last night in Seattle and just happened to discover Le Pichet. What great luck! The food was amazing. I had the salmon and my friend the steak and both were absolutely fantastic! In addition, our server was friendly and knowledgeable about both the food... More

Had a late breakfast here on the hotel manager's recommendation and we couldn't have been more charmed. We had simply delicious eggs, ham and baguettes in a remarkably authentic setting - down to the stern French woman who runs the place. Would definitely go back next time I'm in Seattle

The onion soup and the charcuterie were amazing! We had to wait outside for half an hour for a table, but it was worth it. Inside there is this ambiance where you feel like you're in a French city. People eating at the bar, good wine and good food! Happiness!

Le Pichet is a great spot near Pike Place Market for a true taste of France, day or night. This authentic French-style bar/cafe is open every day from 8 a.m. to midnight, serving an extensive menu, including breakfast and charcuterie items all day. The oeufs plats with jambon et fromage is the perfect way to start the day - at... More

It was hard to leave we were enjoying ourselves so much. Please go if you can you will not regret it. We ordered the Saucissons Séchés A... More
