This cafe was an unexpected but exceptionally good find. The cafe is on the steps to come up from the harbor piers to the Pikes Place Market, slightly off the beaten track. The food was exceptionally good. An eggplant dish was superb, perfectly cooked and...More

The spread sampler appetizer was amazing! Hummus, blue cheese, and tzaziki - how can you go wrong?! And the cocktails were even better -- inventive combinations made with a variety of spirits -- a little something for everyone.

Had the burger and fries was very good and filling. Also had one of the cocktails the bartender recommended was very good! If you are looking for not your average drinks or food this is the place.

We were in Seattle during some rare warm weather and finding patios was difficult. While visiting Pike Market we found this little place and the patio was great. It is a little pricey but we just wanted a drink and an appetizer so we got...More

This is my favorite watering hole in Seattle and would visit the city just to go to this bar. Near the market, but hidden from the tourist hordes, the Zig Zag cafe is dark, sexy, and almost too sensual. When I was younger, the Zig...More
