My First Trip to Seattle

A few weekends ago I visited Seattle for the first time. The weather was a little fickle, ranging from gray skies, light showers, heavy rain, hail and perfect sunshine. The sun poked its head out for a few hours during our walk through Kubota Garden in Rainier Beach and also on the day we were leaving. I think I saw a glimpse of it when we were trying to take pictures in front of Pike Place Market too.


We rented a condo in Belltown, which turned out to be within walking distance of every restaurant that we had planned on eating at. It was only about 5-6 blocks from Pike Place too. Some of my favorite dining spots were Bedlam Coffee, Local 360, Serious Pie, Tilikum Place Cafe and The Crumpet Shop.

I wish I could have a lavender mocha from Bedlam Coffee everyday.


 There was something about the fries at Local 360 that was extremely addictive.


The baked egg at Tilikum Cafe was delish.


I don’t often eat pizza, but I have to say the pizzas at Serious Pie were one of the better ones that I’ve had. Oh yea that’s an egg on top.



My first crumpet from The Crumpet Shop was amazing. Ricotta, honey and walnuts? An excellent combo. I am going to try to make this at home.


We also did some touristy things and two of my favorite were the Chihuly exhibit and the Underground Tour.



There may not have been any strip clubs or drunk bar hopping activities, but we still had a great time. For anyone who is planning on visiting Seattle, I highly recommend booking a condo with Seattle Oasis Vacation Rentals. Our condo was pretty,clean, well stocked and included parking.
