Where we dined, it was casual. We had to order our food from a chalkboard but a worker there will bring it to you. On the day we ate, we ordered what Lowell’s call its market breakfast. The range of prices for this is $7.95 to $8.95. My breakfast consisted of a thick piece of ham, two pieces of toast, hash browns and two eggs. This breakfast platter was enormous. It was enough to feed two people. I couldn’t eat it all. And the food was cooked to perfection.
We all enjoyed eating here. Although the short chrome stools at our table weren’t the most comfortable chairs we ever sat in, this place still had plenty of other things we liked about it. The following is what we adored about it: cleanliness throughout the restaurant ( shinny black and white tile floors and tables, workers wearing gloves when dealing with food, pre-made food was covered, the coffee set up was spotless, etc. ), cartoon chefs pictures on the walls were amusing to look at, food came fast and was very tasty, there were various size tables and sizes (round and rectangular) that could seat different size parties, the picture windows that were available for seating and the décor of the place in general was eye catching (dark green walls and mostly white trim with dark green table tops with oak wood trim and one large table that was black with wood oak trim with regular chairs with backs that were black and chrome) and, of course, the view of the Port of Seattle, the Olympic Mountains, and the waterfront.
I highly recommend this place. The address is 1529 Pike Place, Seattle, WA and the phone number is 206/622-2036. At the Pike, the 1st floor entry is on the Arcade side Cobblestone Street level, with stairs leading to more floors above. It is open daily from 7am until 9pm.
