Seattle Weekly's Description

Tilikum Place is an unexpectedly successful hybrid between an all-day diner and a erudite little bistro. During the day, Chef Ba Culbert serves nostalgic classics like baked beans on toast and airy Dutch babies made to order in cast-iron pans. The day's sweet option may be laden with roasted apple slices and walnuts, the savory, with tendrils of duck confit. Dusk shutters the Cafe's wide-open atmosphere, transforming it into an intimate hideaway. Now's the time to order the specials of the day, which can be anything from scallops set atop two purees, yam wasabi and spinach, or a tender haunch of rabbit with spinach-mushroom dumpling cakes.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Seattle Times on 05/24/10

    An inviting spot where a European vibe meets a contemporary American menu that segues smoothly from baked beans and Dutch babies to house-made pastas, savory tarts and chicken with dumplings.

  • Seattle Met on 06/30/10

    In this underpriced, underheralded, and most lived-in of cafes—is rare, getting rarer, and a genuine thrill to discover. Simple as that.

  • Seattle Met on 11/30/10

    Tilikum’s masterful dinners set the bar high, but its brunches equal them in quality and verve—and remain the cafe’s most consistent business.

    Largely underrated, the lofty ceilings and large windows create a bright and airy space perfect for the seasonal dishes that comfortingly reflect the best Northwest ingredients. [Eater 38 Member]
