About Coastal Kitchen

Nestled in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Seattle is Coastal Kitchen, an iconic staple of Capitol Hill since 1993. Known for our touring menu; fresh, wild, and sustainable seafood, brunch, and happy hours; Coastal’s old-Seattle neighborhood charm coupled with a dedication for local, environmentally-conscious cuisine makes us an unmissable stop for any time of day.

Touring Menu

For over a quarter decade, Coastal Kitchen has traveled the world with our Touring Menu, taking our guests to a different international coastal region every few months with a commitment to serving the best local ingredients. We’ve traveled to the far flung coastlines of the Basque region, Majorca, Veracruz, and Casablanca, among so many others. With a curiosity for flavors, a passion for culture, and an eye for the unique – we at Coastal Kitchen take pride in showcasing our wanderlust through our Touring Menus. Since our doors opened, our frequently changing menus highlight different coastal regions throughout the world, bringing new ideas and twists to classic dishes. Don’t look great in your bathing suit? Fear Not! We have classic American fare available for land lovers. We strive for authenticity, sustainability, and local sourcing to keep our global hearts rooted in Seattle while taking your taste buds on a vacation.


If you’ve heard about Coastal Kitchen, you’ve definitely heard of our brunch. Served every day from 8am to 3pm (with our separate lunch menu beginning at 11am), we’ve long been the brunch mainstay of Capitol Hill. Famous for the “best hashbrowns in Seattle,” according to many regulars, as well as fried oysters, fluffy pancakes, an array of scrambles and benedicts, and classic menu staples like the Sonora Scramble, featuring Uli’s chorizo from Pike Place Market. And, because we care, every morning we offer a “Don’t Judge Me!” Happy Hour! Monday through Friday, 8am - 10am, and weekends from 8am - 9am get your vitamin fix with a fresh squeezed orange mimosa or a shot of caffeine with an Irish coffee – breakfast cocktails during “Don’t Judge Me!” Happy Hour are just $6!

Happy Hour

By the time brunch winds down, it’s time for another Happy Hour! From 3pm - 6pm & again from 9pm – close every day, we have you covered for the mid-afternoon drink you’ve been craving. Our happy hour menu features $1.50 fresh shucked oysters on the half shell, fries with eyes, and more snacks to keep the blood sugar – and cheer – up. We also have draught beer, martinis, manhattans, and dad jokes all on a discount!


At 5pm, we dim the lights and bring out the candles, because it’s time to go out for dinner. Dinner at Coastal Kitchen highlights the best of what Seattle dining has to offer, from our wine selections (all bottles are just $36) to our always fresh seasonal menu changes, we take pride in our locavore culture — sustainable and wild seafood, with local and fresh meats, dairy, and produce. Though we can’t promise our menu hasn’t changed since you saw us last, we can promise our dedication to providing our guests with our very best will never change.

Tuesday and Wednesday Evenings

To help spice up the working week, every Tuesday is Dollar Oyster Night at Coastal Kitchen! We think this is the best oyster happy hour in all of Seattle! We serve oysters on the half shell for just one dollar every single Tuesday, from 3pm – 10pm, rain or shine! Our tireless shuckers can fill a plate with however many $1 oysters one could ever desire, all you have to do is give us a number!

Every Wednesday, while you recover from an oyster hangover, come back for All Night Hump Day Happy Hour! Starting at 3pm and going until close, we’ve got drinks, snacks, and oysters (again!). Our happy hours are honored throughout the restaurant, including our romantic patios. Reservations are accepted and encouraged, but not required!

We'd Love to Serve You

Whether you’re visiting us from afar or live just around the corner, Coastal Kitchen strives to make you feel at home every time you visit. Bring the family along! We are well-stocked with high-chairs, booster seats, crayons, and our kitchen can whip up a tasty pancake in the shape of everyone’s favorite cartoon mouse. Our walls are made vibrant with local art (available for purchase from the artists!); our back deck is romantic and cheery on a breezy, warm afternoon; our family-friendly layout, menu, and staff can keep even the littlest of kiddos entertained.

No matter if you’re craving breakfast, brunch, lunch, happy hour, dinner, or just reassurance that your new haircut looks hot, Coastal Kitchen will be right here on Capitol Hill to take care of what you need...just like we have been for the past 25 years. Thanks for the history, Seattle.
