The new Saint Helens Cafe at 3600 NE 45th Street opened on February 19th, with an extensive menu for lunch and dinner, and weekend brunch. UPDATE: here is a recent restaurant review of the Saint Helens.
This new building just east of the Union Bay Place intersection shares space with a casual burger restaurant, Great State Burger, which is to open on Wednesday, February 24th.
Keep an eye on the old Zaw Pizza space at 7320 35th Ave NE, just south of the Wedgwood Safeway, where the building is being remodeled for Veraci Pizza. Veraci will be a sit-down space for eating by a clay oven, and will also have grab-and-go food items. UPDATE: Veraci is scheduled to open on May 16, 2016.
