The Collections Cafe was perfect for a bite to eat after touring the Chihuly Glass and Garden Centre. I really enjoyed the tasty bowl of clam chowder. The collections make it a unique place to dine!

We settled into our booth after seeing a show a Seattle Children’s Theater. Tucked into the side of Chihuly Glass museum, Collections Cafe could easily be confused as a restaurant who’s one saving grace is that is in the heart of a tourist trap. Luckily,...More
