Athenian Inn information
There’s nothing fancy about Pike Place Market's Athenian, but it’s a landmark and a bastion of unpretentious, frontier-era Seattle. Consider, as you sink that hoppy beer, that this joint has been here since 1909, opening two years after the market itself.
Over time the 'inn' has been a bakery, a lunch counter and a set location in the movie Sleepless in Seattle . Today, it seems to have settled in as a diner-bar combination where, especially in the off hours, you can snuggle into a window booth and gaze over Elliott Bay with a plate of fried fish and a frosty mug of Manny’s Pale Ale.
