Hi loves! I’ve been travelling South East Asia for the past five weeks which is my way to explain why I’ve been so quiet on the blog 😉
I felt it was time for a new travel post about a city I really wanted to see for a long time: Seattle!
Considering how high the prices were during August, I wasn’t able to spend more than two nights in the city. I did feel satisfied with what I got to see knowing I would be back especially after watching this video!
Here are five places I visited and loved:
1) Storyville Coffee
I started my day in this beautiful coffee shop [it’s a Seattle chain] steps away from Pike Place Market. The Americano was solid and I can always appreciate a place that has sparkling water on tap.
2) Pike Place Market
Of course, I had to visit the famous market right after. I was expecting to eat tons of food in the main area but it wasn’t before I crossed the street that I found exciting counters. I ended up going for a tasting of five different chowders 🙌
3) Rachel’s Ginger Beer
I rarely go for sugary drinks but this place was the bomb. The whole branding and colourful wall with all the different flavours got me so excited. Definitely a place to stop by for a drink!
4) Pressed Juicery
It was my first time in a Pressed Juicery location and even if the service was rude (ugh, teenagers), it was soooo good! I always wanted to try their soft-serve mix of fruits, nuts & vegetables. I tried the matcha flavour topped with almond butter and a few more goodies.
After grabbing some vegan pizza at Sizzle Pie, I decided to go at Garage to play pool. I’ve really been enjoying incorporating activities into my trips lately, which gives you a chance to meet locals and most importantly, get away from tourists.
On my first night, I also had a great meal at Capitol Cider, a gluten-free pub! If you’re in town for a while or want to bring back cool food products, I would also stop by Central Co-op.
