I've been told, but never seen it substantiated in print, that this underground cafe served as the set model for the fictional Cafe Nervosa frequented by the Drs. Frasier and Niles Crane of the long running "Frasier" television program. It is actually known as The Elliot Bay Cafe, and sits beneath the Elliot Bay Book Company at the corner of 1st and Main Streets in the Pioneer Square district. The fictional Cafe Nervosa was supposedly at the corner of 3rd and Pike, quite a distance away, but quite near the Seattle Symphony's home, Benoroya Hall, and a short walk from the famous Public Market. cafe+nervosa frasier+Seattle elliott+bay+cafeSeattle+underground+cafe frasier+cafe Seattle+cafe Seattle+coffee
