My husband and I absolutely love The Neighborhood Cafe! Located in the Whittier Heights neighborhood (Ballard), we are able to walk there. Plus, the place is so kid-friendly! We bring our ten-month-old daughter with us, and the wait staff are always so sweet with her. The owner/cook is a very friendly woman who always comes out to see how everyone is doing -- the first time we were there she made a little pancake for our daughter (at no charge!). What a kind gesture. The food is very good, and service is relatively quick. The Neighborhood Cafe really made an impression on us, and we will keep going back.
