Chihuly’s lifelong passion for collecting started on the shores of the Puget Sound where he scoured the beach as a boy looking for bright shards of beach glass. Today, his extensive collections include vintage objects and material culture of all kinds. Some items are selected based on their function, others for shapes and colors. Regardless of the reason, all have a personal connection for Chihuly and we are delighted to present them to you in the Collections Café.

Collections’ décor draws in part from Chihuly’s iconic Boathouse on Seattle’s Lake Union, and the combination of colors and materials motivated Chihuly to share some of the very collections that adorn the walls of his home and studio spaces.

Within this setting, guests will enjoy a dining experience celebrating Northwest faire coupled with a selection of craft beers and a wine list heavily focused on Washington and Oregon wines; the Collections is a true celebration of all the Northwest.

The Collections Café offers an original, fresh and uniquely Northwest dining experience for lunch, dinner or an afternoon bite. Admission to the exhibition is not required for dining at the Collections Café.

Love this café”

Very nice spot for lunch or light dinner. Excellent service and great menu with interesting choices. Soup and Caesar was so tasty. The chocolate dessert with homemade ice cream and blood orange slices was terrific. Nice wine list. Welcomed the opportunity to return and will visit again.

Col­lec­tions Café rounds out a real nice visit”

Had lunch at Collections after visiting the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum. Sat out in greenhouse. Very nice place on a sunny afternoon. Our table was ready at reservation time. Our service prompt. The food was very good. Started with the Garnet Yam Pakora. Very tasty. I had the Steak Salad, my wife the Salmon Casear. Not adventurous choices, but the preparation was top notch. Prices were ok. I would definately dine there again.

Great Muse­um Café”

The food was great at this interesting cafe, and the waitress was very patient with our questions and requests for substitutions. The decor is very interesting, and includes the artists collections of various items such as vintage radios (displayed on the walls) and knick knacks (such as china dogs displayed in a case on our table). This cafe is worth visiting even if you don't visit the museum.

Sur­prise Gem”

Before an event at Key Arena we decided to try the Collections Café. I was a little skeptical given it was in Seattle Center and I was guessing geared more for feeding the masses than for quality. I am happy that I was wrong. The menu is simple but with sufficient variety between seafood, beef, pork and fowl. My friend and I decided to split everything. We had a wonderful asparagus appetizer with a softly boiled egg, on-site made ricotta, prosciutto and balsamic reduction, yum. Then the beet salad, another good choice. We also had the duck entrée and the rockfish entrée, both were great and the sides were especially delicious. Prices are reasonable and the wine list has some very good choices also for very reasonable prices. Greatly exceeded my expectations for food quality and yumminess and did not put a chip in my wallet. Recommend.
