Sound View Cafe is located within the Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. With a good menu, great service and a great location overlooking the waterfront, this cafe is a worthy consideration for anyone looking for a reasonably priced meal in Seattle.

This is a small place with tight seating, but the food was good. We ordered breakfast including oatmeal, eggs, fresh oj, lox and bagels. Everything was prepared well and tasted very fresh. Also, the view is right on the sound. For being at Pike's Place, it was reasonable priced.

Food was good but took a bit to get. Crab cake sandwich was fried to long but flavor filled. Easy location just by the fish toss.

I had the seafood platter. The salmon was very good as were the prawns. The crab cakes were poor. Food was made to order so it tasted fresh and hot. The place was a little crowded and the view was pretty good.

It may not be Pike Place Chowder, but we truly enjoyed their chowder! We had a late lunch here, but it was still packed...nonetheless, we were able to quickly find a seat and order chowders on a bread bowls. Generous portions, OK price, good view.

I was looking for a seafood plate and asked them for their recommendation, after describing to me what was in the seafood Extravaganza with the sauce which was a special mixture I said "that's what I want". It was one of the best entrees I have tasted in my entire life and being 60 years old that says a lot.... More
