Slate Coffee Roasters
Slate Coffee Roasters is a trendy coffee shop with five locations throughout the city. The Instagram-worthy ambiance is perfect for a coffee date, meeting, or workspace. Slate Coffee Roasters is especially known for its deconstructed latte, which is broken down to espresso, milk, and the completed latte to create a full flavor experience.
Matt's in the Market
Matt's in the Market is an intimate but casual restaurant that overlooks the Public Market Center and beautiful Seattle views. The kitchen uses the market downstairs for fresh ingredients and menu inspiration, which includes a lot of fresh seafood. Our recommendation would be the catfish sandwich.
Le Pichet is a traditional French Bistro, which is just how it looks from the outside with its blue windowpanes and petite patio. The inside is cozy with décor that provides a European feel. Le Pichet offers a great wine selection, fantastic charcuterie plates, and decadent desserts.
The Walrus and the Carpenter
Oysters are a must if you are visiting the coast, so The Walrus and the Carpenter can't be missed. It's literally on every Seattle dining list ever. The bright and open restaurant has a fantastic bar top and outdoor patio. The food is fresh with small, but savory portions. Stop in during the oyster happy hour to sample a variety of oysters at a great price.
Maneki is one of the oldest Japanese restaurants in Seattle and is known for its traditional style and menu; it even features a traditional tatami room. The restaurant looks small and unremarkable from the outside, but the sushi is exquisite.
