Restaurants in Seattle, WA

Maybe because it is such a coffee Mecca, Seattle also happens to be one of the nation’s best breakfast cities — for pastries to go with coffee as well as beautiful Benedicts, elegant pancakes, and fruit-strewn waffles. Then, of course, there’s an abundance of Pacific Northwest seafood from geoduck clams to Dungeness crab … and colorful sushi and poke bars … and a kaleidoscopic choice of eats at the Pike Place Market … and a passion for magnificent sandwiches … and a radiant population of Asian restaurants … and … Let’s just say that if you can’t find something you love to eat in Seattle, you just aren’t hungry! A fun pop-culture addendum is that Twede’s Cafe, about a half hour east of town in North Bend, is the place Twin Peaks’ Dale Cooper praised for its cherry pie and “damn fine cup of coffee.” The menu now bills the cafe as “Home of Twin Peaks Cherry Pie.”
