The Fat Hen

My girls and I have been enjoying brunch (coffee and Eggs Benedict!) at The Fat Hen, a charming little local cafe in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.
I wish you could join us!
The food, the coffee, and the ambience.
So heavenly, I want to move in.

    This cafe looks so charming, just like a good Seattle coffee shop should! My cousin lives in Ballard. I’ll have to send her over to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I like the warmth of the wood and soft whites. The mix of traditional with modern.But I’m sorry, I don’t think I could be comfortable in the metal chairs and stools. I have back issues and there is no support in either type of chair. They kind of say to me, ‘come and sit but not too long.’
    The food and coffee looks very delicious though!

      It really isn’t a place you’d want to stay too long anyway since there are probably several people waiting for your spot — it’s a tiny cafe where you pop in for a quick coffee with a friend. :-)

  3. Sandra at Thistle Cove Farm

    O my gosh. I cannot remember the last time I was in such a charming cafe! It’s lovely and I think that Fr. press needs a jacket.

    What a quaint and cozy little eatery. I much prefer these types of places over the pretentious and fancy. Sure wish it was close; I’d ask you to meet me for coffee with feathers on top [or is that a leaf?]. Enjoy your day! (:

    Melissa ~ PLEASE tell me they can’t wait to open a little spot in NY!

  6. Cynthia

    This looks like such a great place. Very cozy and welcoming. I can sense the food must be good!



    What a charming little cafe, it is always fun to go to a local hangout that feels like home away from home.

    First of all, let me say how much I love knowing you’re in my hometown. I grew up in Seattle and while we’re in Hawaii courtesy of the Navy, I miss all the little coffee shops and amazing eateries!
    Second of all, you absolutely have to keep exploring Ballard! Try The Barking Dog or Ridgeback Cafe near the Ballard Goodwill…. Also Capitol Hill – Go to Skillet Diner on a Saturday/Sunday so you can die trying to finish their cinnamon roll and a pork belly waffle. :) If you ever feel like heading north (or taking the Kingston Ferry), Edmonds also has some super cute and tasty spots – Epulo, Loft, Cheesemonger’s Table, Rusty Pelican, Five…. and Revelations, for delicious froyo, of course.
    And now I’m hungry. ;)

  9. Brandie @ Spoon and Saucer

    So cute! Just added it to places I must visit next time I’m in Seattle. :)

  10. Bettsi

    so adorable! and I love the name. Yes, I would love to move in there too! Enjoy!

    I love this place! The food is so good and the design is beautiful. Thanks for profiling for everyone!

  12. Holly

    This is my kind of place. My husband and I love to explore and find new cafes to check out. Of course we have our favorites as well, but when we’re traveling or in a new town we always seek out the independent coffee shops. This one looks perfect!
