Watch out when the Amazon.com offices in South Lake Union empty out for the day, because the seats at this Tom Douglas eatery fill up fast with techies craving big, fresh, soft pretzels—some made into sandwiches, some just dipped in a selection of house-made mustards—along with burgers, fish-and-chips, and a long beer list that offers the perfect accompaniments to a game of shuffleboard. The long wooden tables are quieter at other times, so stop in for eggy breakfasts
and brunches where the produce might come from Douglas's farm in Eastern Washington. Looking for a quieter venue? Douglas also owns the adjacent Italian restaurant, Cuoco.
