We spent a few days in Seattle before Christmas and managed to eat out a few times. Travelling with a 14 month old is not easy (with meals, preparation is key). We were based in the Capital Hill area, which had lots of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. I would go back to all of these places.
Queen Bee Cafe – Really good coffee, crumpets (the lemon curd was delicious) and crumpwiches. Plus all profits go to charities.
Pike Place Chowder – Stopped at the the original chowder house at Pike Place Market and ordered the sampler; my favourites were the New England clam chowder and smoked salmon chowder.
Rachels’ Ginger Beer – Next door to Pike Place Chowder. They have so many flavours of ginger beer, I got the pink guava.
Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room – Definitely worth visiting here if you like coffee; beautiful interior and I picked up some coffee that were roasted just the day before!
Trove – We had Korean BBQ, I would’ve liked to try their noodles too but it’s a separate area in the restaurant. For dessert, I ordered the Gingerbread Man parfait which had dark chocolate frozen custard, stout caramel and gingerbread cookies. I got to keep the cute jar it came in too!
Monsoon – Really good vietnamese food, my favourite dishes were the imperial rolls and claypot catfish.
The Wandering Goose – I had a really indulgent meal at this cute cafe, a biscuit sandwich filled with fried chicken, gravy and cheese. Their cakes looked really good too.
Hello Robin – Yummy homemade cookies, the habanero chocolate one has a real kick. Next time I’ll have to try an ice cream sandwich.
