Seattle Weekly's Description
The much-loved Elliott Bay Cafe underneath the now-gone Elliott Bay Bookstore in Pioneer Square was once the model for Frasier's Cafe Nervosa, but, now relocated to Capitol Hill, the new space offers its own charms. Elliott Bay Cafe specializes in inventive, organic-based comfort food; try a breakfast risotto with coconut milk, a three-cheese grilled cheese, or the grainiest granola around. There's also a daily offering of fresh pastries, and, nestled inside the eponymous bookstore, all the people watching you can stand.
Tips from foursquare
Voted Best Underground Chocolate-Chip Cookie in Best of Seattle 2010! They are soft and crunchy, with a no-doubt-about-it buttery richness!
Get the Argentinian Steak Salad and a Mexican Coke for lunch - delicious
The most inventive, down-to-earth meals in Seattle. Dozens of fresh baked goods. Highly recommend the steak salad, cuban press, and chile verde. Choose something at random, you won't be disappointed.
Same great food but without the wait. This place is dead now that the bookstore moved.
Vegan's rejoice! Hemp Lattes and Mighty-O donuts!
