There’s nothing fancy about the Athenian, but it’s a landmark and a bastion of unpretentious, frontier-era Seattle, a holdover from the days before Starbucks and Grand Central Bakery (way before – it opened in 1909, two years after the market itself).

It’s been a bakery and a lunch counter, and now 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.
