In my mind Macy’s is still the Bon Marche, the Red Apple in Madison Park is still the IGA, and St. Clouds is still Cool Hand Lukes, but unlike the first two…I do not think the latter has any relation to its predecessor other than its space. Thus, I will correct myself: St. Clouds Food & Spirits (not Cool Hand Lukes) is a great Seattle restaurant. Everyone is really friendly, the food is good, and the prices are reasonable. Everyone loves the Hi Spot for brunch but St. Clouds has a brunch I like a lot too. Although most of the times we go there for dinner where the herbed roasted chicken or the parmigiano-crusted pork tenderloin are some of the favorites.
During the summer you can eat on the back garden patio hidden behind the building or inside in the bar area or in the main dining area. They often have live music tucked just to the left as you enter the Madrona restaurant.
St. Clouds in one of the few places in Madrona that you can sit at the bar and have a cocktail. At the Madrona Ale House you can sit and have a beer, but only (that I can think of) St. Clouds and Naam have a bar where you can have a cocktail. St. Clouds has a happy hour Monday through Friday from 5 PM to 6:30 PM.
St. Clouds is located in the middle of Madrona on 34th just south of Union. Open 5 PM to 11 PM Sunday through Thursday, and until Midnight on Friday and Saturday. Also, Saturday and Sunday from 9 AM to 2 PM.
