Pike Place Chowder

Seattle's Award-Winning, Hall-of-Fame chowder cafés named America's #1 & Seattle's Best, serving 8 varieties daily.

With two Seattle locations, Pike Place Chowder first opened its doors in 2003 in Pike Place Market, followed by the 2007 launch of a second location in the Pacific Place shopping center.

Owner and Founder, Larry Mellum, runs a tight ship when it comes to serving only the best, a standard that has earned dozens of wins in regional and national competitions, including induction into the Great Chowder Cook-Off Hall-of-Fame.

In 2011 and 2012, Pike Place Chowder won the coveted People’s Choice Award at the West Coast Chowder Cook Off in Monterey, CA.
