Get there early on the weekends! – Been going almost every Sunday for 5 years. Love this place, service is always great and you can count on the food being great everytime you go. Orange juice is fresh and suprisingly great coffee. If you have people in town this is a great place to go to, reasonably priced and a great view.
NOT Family Friendly – We love the location, but the cost of the food for what you get is too high. We used to go here regularly, even though the cost was high and the service margin at best, until we were literally told off by the manager. We allowed our 2-year old to get down from the table to move around a bit. Keep in mind that the restaurant was nearly empty this wet, fall day. The manager said that she would take no liability for the safety of our child, as if he had wandered into the kitchen or something. The she proceeded to glare at us as we finished our meal. We will not be going back!
Poor service at Alki Cafe – The food is pretty good and the staff is very friendly at the Alki Cafe, but the manager/owner is really rude and I won't patronize this restaurant again as long as he is around.
Terrible service! – I am not a picky person and have never took the time to write a dining review but I feel it is important to post my poor experience at this cafe. Whatever you do, DON'T take a group larger then 4 people, DON'T take senior citizens there, DON'T take kids. I had been to the cafe several times before in smaller groups, but a group over 4 simply doesn't work there. It wasn't worth 45 minute long wait to feel like our party of 6 was such an awful incovenience for them. It was supposed to be a celebratory brunch for my Mother's birthday, instead, we felt rushed and frowned upon since we were 6 people (who didn't mind waiting). We waited for 45 minutes, only to be rushed out as soon as possible. Not a friendly atmosphere. Won't go back, a terrible place to bring kids and senior citizens.
Mixed – Visited the Alki for the second time this morning. Last time I had the delicious Cafe Benedict with crab cakes and poached eggs. Would have preferred a classic Hollandaise to the swiss-assiago sauce, but it was good anyhow. Had the chicken fried steak and eggs today. Eggs, potatoes and English muffin great. CFsteak - avoid it. Tough and tasteless. Nevertheless, go to this terrific little spot.
One of the city's best – Panoramic views of Puget Sound and beach-related eye candy gild the lily at this popular West Seattle spot. Breakfast is their specialty (served until 2pm), and with perfected dishes like the Cafe Benedict (made with fresh crabcakes), no wonder they're packed past noon. Lunch and dinner are no slouches either, with a wide variety of interesting sandwiches, fresh pasta, and impeccably fresh seafood. And prices are surprisingly inexpensive, given the neighborhood.
Best cinnamon roll in the city – Without peer, this place makes the most excellent cinnamon rolls I've ever had in Seattle, at least since the Crusty Loaf closed. They are amazing. I just wish they'd add raisins and/or pecans to some once in a while...then I'd be in heaven.
