TOP 5 OF SEATTLE (FOOD EDITION)

Buddha Bowl at Heartbeet Organic Superfoods Cafe

THE MOMENT WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR! I have been dying to put together a Seattle guide for a long freaking time. The issue is, I get overwhelmed when I look at city guides and in the end, resort to Yelp. So I decided to put together a different take on a city guide. Here are my top 5s of my hometown, Seattle.

TOP 5 FAST CASUAL EATS

  • Homegrown – Farm to table style soups, salads, and sandwiches. // Sprinkled all around the city, Bellevue, and Mercer Island
  • Café Yumm – A tastier Chipotle (in my opinion) with plant based options. // 7th & Pine
  • Bounty Kitchen – Local, organic, and lots of variety! // Queen Anne and Denny Triangle
  • Vinason Pho & Grill – Vietnamese food made locally and sustainably. Vegetarian/vegan and keto options available! // South Lake Union
  • Eltana – If you need a bagel spot in Seattle, this is it. // Capitol Hill and Seattle Center

TOP 5 PLANT BASED EATS

  • Heartbeet Organic Superfoods Cafe – Amazing salads, warm bowls, juices, and tasty raw vegan treats. // Queen Anne
  • Plum Bistro – Three words. MAC AND YEEZY. The tastiest vegan comfort food in the city. // Capitol Hill
  • Cafe Flora – Amazing brunch. Best cinnamon roll ever and if you can’t get enough, they have a location in the airport in between the A & B gates. // Madison Valley
  • Juicebox Cafe – Unique flavors and twists on simple eats. Try their savory oats! // Capitol Hill
  • Harvest Beat – Definitely a splurge but such an amazing experience of local and eco-friendly eats in the art of a 5 course meal. // Wallingford

TOP 5 BRUNCH EATS

  • Super Six – Hawaiian fusion with the best morning adult bevvies. // Columbia City
  • Cafe Opla – Vietnamese fusion, banh mi in a skillet. Unique and amazing. // On the Pier
  • Oddfellows Cafe – Simple menu, great ambience. // Capitol Hill
  • Mr. West Cafe & Bar – They have charcuterie boards. I REPEAT. They have charcuterie boards!! // Westlake
  • The Fat Hen // If you enjoy eggs and a simple menu, check this spot out. Fair warning, the space is small so there will most likely be a wait. But worth it! // Ballard

TOP 5 SWEET EATS

  • Frankie and Jo’s – The best ice cream in the city. All vegan and fun flavors. // Ballard and Capitol Hill.
  • Ellenos Yogurt – The most amazing Greek yogurt ever, tastes like melted cheesecake. Local. // Pike Place Market and Georgetown
  • The Flying Apron – A vegan and gluten free bakery! AMAZING. // West Seattle and Fremont
  • Mighty-O Donuts – The yummiest doughnuts that just HAPPEN to be vegan. // Capitol Hill, Greenlake, Ballard, and Denny Triangle
  • Hot Cakes – Homemade molten cakes. Unreal. // Ballard and Capitol Hill

TOP 5 COFFEESHOPS

  • Cafe An’Clair – A French inspired cafe with amazing pastries, naturally. // South Lake Union
  • Retreat – Wellness latte galore! They also have lots of amazing food options and turns into a bar later in the day. // Greenlake
  • Stone Way Cafe – Amazing coffee, great food, and live music in the evening! // Fremont
  • Storyville Coffee – Great local coffee and ambience for work space. // Downtown, Capitol Hill, and Pike Place
  • Atulea – For you non-coffee drinkers, my favorite matcha shop makes amazing matcha lattes and bubble tea! Super cute and makes me feel like I’m in California. // Capitol Hill

TOP 5 HAPPY HOUR

  • Toulouse Petit – The tastiest creole food made affordable with their incredible happy hour menu. Incredible first date-y ambience. // Queen Anne
  • Pablo y Pablo – Great happy hour menu with lots of food and drink options. Vegetarian/vegan options available! GET THE SPICY MARGS. // Wallingford
  • M Bar – Rooftop bar with a unique menu. Worth it for the view alone. // South Lake Union
  • Lunchbox Laboratory – Not the healthiest, but definitely one of the most delicious. I dream of their totchos. // South Lake Union and Greenlake
  • Japonessa – Seattle’s best sushi happy hour, hands down. The hours alone are amazing but the menu actually has a great selection and the drinks are amazing too. // Downtown
