What to Eat in Seattle: A Delicious Weekend Itinerary

Seattle, WA, USA
I’ve always had a soft spot for Seattle. It is a great place to visit if you like slower paced city full of beauty and amazing food. The idea of going to the market on a Saturday morning eating fresh baked pastries with a cup of coffee has kept me eager to come back frequently and this time, we picked the perfect time to visit for a short weekend..

Pike Place Market
We chose to stay close to Pike Place Market just so we can wake up to the aroma of baking bread. Just kidding, we couldn’t smell anything from our room but the idea sounds nice, doesn’t it? Our plan for the day was to eat as many thing as possible for breakfast and walk around the market until we’re hungry again.

First thing on the list was The Crumpet Shop. They have all kind of sweet and savory crumpet options. We decided to go with something a little basic (ham & cheese) just so we don’t over-stimulate our palate. A crumpet makes a perfect breakfast especially on a chilly morning because it’s warm and fluffy on the inside.

Next item on the list was Champignon pastry from Le Panier French Bakery. It’s hard to miss this spot because there’s always a line that goes out of the shop especially if you come on a Saturday morning so come early if you want to beat the crowd!

For your caffeine fix, there’s a favorite of mine that sits right in the heart of the public market.. skip the line to the OG Starbucks and head over to Storyville Coffee Company, a coffee shop hidden away on a second floor of the building across the Public Market sign. This place may be packed with tourists but it’s a favorite for the locals too. Love the ambience and interior decor of this spot and if you’re lucky enough snag a seat on the sofa next to the giant window, you’ll have the best view of Pike Place Market while sipping on a fine cup of coffee.

At this point, we don’t think we can stuff any more food but Greek yoghurt is supposed to be good for you so the calories don’t count, right? This is our first time trying Ellenos Greek Yogurt and we later became obsessed with it. (You can find them at Whole Foods in the Bay Area!) Our first cup got us hooked and I almost wanted to have it for dinner too :p

University of Washington
After checking off our food list at the market, we head off to University of Washington to check out the library that was supposedly a filming location for Harry Potter.

Paseo Caribbean Food
The next morning, we went to check out Paseo Caribbean Food. Heard good things about this place and we wanted to beat the crowd so we got there at around 11am right when they opened and it did not disappoint. We ordered the famous Caribbean Roast, which they claimed it to be "rated best sandwich in America", as well as a Caribbean bowl. The meat is so tender and juicy and the bread is baked to perfection. We finished the sandwich all too soon before taking a photo of it!

Starbucks Reserve
Our last stop before heading back to the airport is Starbucks Reserve Roastery. It wouldn’t be a complete Seattle trip without making the stop to a Starbucks! Do checkout their menu and try out different things because they have a different menu from your regular Starbucks.

Some other spots we managed to visit include the newly opened Amazon Go which is a cashier-less shopping experience that was super efficient and futuristic.

It couldn't have been more perfect thanks to the weather! I can't wait to come back already.
