Ballard, WA restaurant is a French cafe & bar located in Old Ballard. 19th century sconces from a church in the French countryside, pendants from a school in Seattle, and more local history throughout.

Everywhere your eye falls in Bastille, there’s a visual feast: 19th century sconces from a church in the French countryside; pendants from a school in Seattle; a clock that adorned a Paris metro station; a cozy “hearth” around which to gather on cool evenings; a host stand that once serviced a small hotel.

It’s all about reinvention, rediscovery, restoration. In fact, that’s their aim—and the source of the word “restaurant”—to restore their guests to a condition of comfort and pleasure amidst the hubbub of urban life.
