Evenings at St. Clouds

St. Clouds, part of the small, little-known shopping area in the Madrona neighborhood is one of Seattle’s hidden gems of a restaurant. St. Clouds has an excellent menu divided into two sections. The “dinner at home” section features hearty meals for a reasonable price. The “dinner out” section has fancier cuisine at a still pretty reasonable price. The herb roasted chicken is probably my favorite item on the menu. It’s a half chicken wonderful roasted served with a big plate of mashed potatoes and greens. The greens should not be underestimated here, as they are very much a fine part of the meal.

St. Clouds is child friendly and there’s also a small bar off to the side. Those in the know start off an evening on the town with a quick drink at St. Clouds. Get to know the bartenders and learn what their specialties are. This bar is one of the few in Seattle to rank a five martini glass rating from 570 Bars.

St. Clouds is also child friendly, though it’s better for children old enough to enjoy sitting for the whole meal. Toddlers who need to run would be better off across the street at the Madrona Ale House. That said, we bring our two-and-a-half year old to St. Clouds.

There are outdoor seating areas in the front (good for romantic intimate meals) and in the back (for larger gatherings, especially with children).

The hot fudge sundae is not to be missed.

    do not overlook brunch at st. clouds, which kicks the ass of the mighty hi spot a block away. it does this quite simply: awesome bloody mary, awesome sourdough french toast stuffed with a ludicrous cream cheese/strawberry jam concoction, wonderful breakfast burrito. even the oatmeal is just perfect.

    Their breakfast is also very lovely as well. Stuffed French toast and interesting egg things with tempeh. And coffee cake!

    mmm…. breakfast and brunch. I’ve only ever had morning food at St. Clouds a few times. It’s quite crowded on weekends, but we’ll keep trying, especially if they have good stuffed French toast.
