If you’re anything like me, then you’re totally up for a cocktail (or two) + grabbing a bite in a beautiful setting at the drop of a hat! Is that how the saying goes? Well with the abundance of amazing spots in Seattle, there’s no excuse ever to go thirsty or hungry here – but it’s always hard narrowing it down to a few favorites. That’s why I’m here – I’ll do that for you. It’s no secret that Seattle is known for it’s seafood so if you’re a seafood lover like myself, you’ve come to the right place. Lots and lots of date nights + girls nights later, I’m sharing my favorite spots in Seattle.
Westward, Lake Union: I can’t say enough good things about this place. Everything about it is just dreamy. The view, the food, the cocktails + most importantly the service at Westward makes it top the charts of my absolute favorite spots in Seattle. The fun thing about Westward is that you can get there by boat or car, but no matter how you get there, get there early as this popping spot is always packed. My favorites are the Oysters (duh) Grilled Octopus Salad, Fried Halloumi (fried cheese) and of course the Rainbow Trout. Im drooling already and need to go back to Westward asap.
MBar, Lake Union: View! View! View! Mbar is situated on the 14 floor and I would say has one of the best views in Seattle. Weather you’re facing the Space Needle or Lake Union, you won’t be disappointed. I would highly suggest getting out of your comfort zone and ordering one of their signature cocktails + the cucumber tzatziki and pita bread is to die for. Note: Order extra pita bread right away, yes it’s that good. You can thank me later.
Bar Melusine, Capitol Hill: This place is an Instagrammers dream, that’s a thing now! The beautiful pop of green-teal makes this the picture perfect brunch + dinner spot. If you love seafood (especially oysters), you’ll definitely want to check out this place.
General Porpoise Doughnuts, Downtown: I have to be completely honest, I’m not really a donut person BUT these are different. General Porpoise Doughnuts are not overly sweet like your typical donut and they are amazing. I’ll never forget seeing General Porpoise on Instagram the first time because they reminded me of my childhood. We have a very similar donut in Bosnia called “krofne” so I couldn’t wait to try these. I think the only real difference is that in Bosnia they are dusted in powdered sugar. Go early for your favorite cup of jo + a donut (who am I kidding, I’ve never been able to have just one) because they do sell out everyday.
Hope you enjoyed my favorite spots and if you happen to visit any of them please comment below and let me know your thoughts. Xx
Thanks for stopping by!
