Watson’s Counter is a Ballard cafe that serves fun and flavorful Korean-American dishes. Lifelong Seattleite James Lim opened his restaurant in 2019 and named it after his dog, Watson. The neighborhood cafe is known for its coffee program and all-day menu, which includes Korean-style “Eggs Benny,” cereal-crusted French toast, Korean poutine, and loco moco.
