Q: Can we bring children and under 21 people to your place?

A: Absolutely. There are sections around the bar restricted to 21+ but all other areas are all ages.

Q: Do you serve food? Are you a restaurant?

A: Yes we serve pastries during the morning. Later in the day we offer café style shared plates, made to order hot and cold sandwiches, salads and packaged snacks. See the menu section. We do not have a full service kitchen.

Q: Do you allow outside food to be brought in?

A: Please no outside food. We encourage you to support our occasional guest food pop-ups, and to try our in-house sandwiches and shared plates. See our calendar for events and pop up information below. (The exception is birthday cakes. We LOVE birthdays and encourage you to celebrate with cakes!)

Q: Do you take reservations for groups?

A: Yes! Please email us at info@thedaneseattle.com with the date, time, size of group and preferred tables (if you have a preference). We will confirm your reservation.

Q: Is your place dog friendly?

A: Although we are all dog lovers, the city code doesn't allow dogs inside the building where we are serving customers unless your dog is a service animal. We have tie-out options and seating out back they can enjoy with you during the nice weather.

Q: Do you have WiFi for customer use?

A: Yes we do.
