It was post dinner time in the city on a Friday night and some friends and I were craving an adult beverage with a non hectic bar-type crowd. When asked by me, the local tourist, “where is a staple bar to visit?” (and that meets our desired criteria) they responded “Hattie’s.”
Known for being Ballards oldest and most historic bar, I was excited to cheers at this landmark of a restaurant/bar. Upon arrival around 9pm, the wait was about one minute as we were quickly seated and in the back where the walls were decorated with old records. After a round of domestic brews we needed something else. The real treat came when our sweet tooth decided to take precedent over a second drink and we decided to order some desserts which were quickly inhaled.
What we had: chocolate cream pie and cherry pie.
Come here if: you want to experience a mellow yet lively vibe, good and personable service and diner meets comfort desserts like their plethora of delicious pies.
