The Athenian was first opened by the three Pappadakis brothers in 1909. starting out as a bakery and luncheonette, it was the first restaurant in Seattle to be issued a liquor license where minors were permitted on the premises in 1933. The neon sign above our front door is the original, hung there for over a century ago.

From a bakery, to a tavern and then to a restaurant the Athenian’s story is typical of the growth and opportunity of our country. Throughout our history in the Pike Place Market, the Athenian has been the crossroads of people from all over the world and a haven for those who have found their homes and futures in the Pacific Northwest
