Still Here

Elliott Bay Cafe remains in situ despite the departure to new digs in Capitol Hill of the world famous Elliott Bay Book Company upstairs. "EBC still open here" read the signs in the window at street level. Check out Chuck's fine photos of Elliott Bay Book Company's grand opening in CH here. Elliott Bay Cafe, the below-street-level cafe under the bookstore that inspired the set for the Frasier TV series' "Cafe Nervosa" continues on just below the sidewalk. So if you're jonesing for caffeine or craving a delicious lunch while in the Pioneer Square area, your old fix is still available.

Good to know for our next trip to Seattle. «Louis» has wanted to visit this place.

That answers that question Kim. I've been wondering what would happen with the cafe once the store moved :-)

How strange for Elliot Bay Books to have moved! I am behind the times and didn't know about this. The book business is changing so much (kinda like the music business a couple of years ago), so nobody knows where it's all going to land. It must be odd to see that building without the book store in it. Do you know why they moved and what's coming in next?

Kim, thanks for the shout-out -:)

I believe the cafe at the new store is open now ... think they were shooting for 1-May ... but ... it will not even come close to the ambiance of the original. Glad it is still open!
