Pike Place Chowder

This Pike Place Market fixture gives the New England classic a run for its money. In fact, Pike Place Chowder's recipe is so good, it won "Nation's Best Chowder" at the Great Chowder Cook-Off in Newport, Rhode Island three years in a row, and was eventually inducted into the Great Chowder Cook-Off Hall-of-Fame.

With eight chowders—including a market special—on the menu every day, it can be difficult to decide. Order a sampler of four varieties, or go for all eight. Not in the mood for soup? Try a fresh salad, Dungeness crab or Maine lobster roll. Although Pike Place Chowder is known for its seafood varieties, the vegan lime and coconut chowder is an unsung hero. 

A favorite amongst locals and travelers, this spot often boasts a line of 75 to 100 people by noon. But don't let that deter you: The line moves fast—and the food is certainly worth the wait.

Menu Must-Have: With the chowder sampler, you can have your chowder and eat it, too. While you're at it, add a pink lemonade to your order.
