Zig Zag Café
Zig Zag Café Review
When it comes to pouring perfect martinis, Zig Zag Café gives Oliver's a run for its money—and it's much more eclectic and relaxed here. A mixed crowd of mostly locals hunts out this unique spot at Pike Place Market's Street Hill Climb (a nearly hidden stairwell leading down to the piers). Several memorable cocktails include the Don't Give Up the Ship (gin, Dubonnet, Grand Marnier, and Fernet Branca), the One-Legged Duck (rye whiskey, Dubonnet, Mandarine Napoleon, and Fernet Branca), and Satan's Soulpatch (bourbon, sweet and dry vermouth, Grand Marnier, orange, and orange bitters). A very simple, ho-hum food menu includes cheese and meat plates, bruschetta, soup, salad, olives, and nuts. A small patio is the place to be on a summery happy-hour evening. Zig Zag is friendly—retro without being obnoxiously ironic—and very Seattle, with the occasional live music show to boot.
