This past weekend, I visited one of my college roommates in Seattle. I had only been to the west coast once before (San Fransisco), so I was eager to spend time with my roomie and explore the Seattle food scene (see her weekend recap here).
Sarah was thoughtful enough to take me to sustainable restaurants including Local 360 (get the PB&J bon bons- just do it!), Homegrown, and my personal favorite, the Volunteer Park Cafe. We also hit up Tom Douglas’s Brave Horse Tavern and Bluebird Ice Cream. Below are some of my favorite food adventures from the weekend…
Pike Place Market
^^While Sarah ran into the office for a few hours, I leisurely explored Pike Place Market. It was even better than I expected, and believe me, I had high expectations!
^^ Fresh flowers as far as the eye can see!
^^Fruits and vegetables galore!
Queen Anne Community Garden
^^Quite the hidden gem, and one of my favorite spots from the trip
^^Check out the beautiful bloom on the artichoke!
^^Wild blackberries were EVERYWHERE! Not just in the community garden, but growing all over city.
Theo Chocolate Tour
^^ I LOVE field trips and food related tours! The Theo tour very much reminded me of the Taza Chocolate tour.
^^ Fair trade, organic chocolate. My 4 favorite words
Other highlights from the weekend included a jog around the waterfront, an outdoor movie at the Seattle Center (Le Mis) and of course, a given if you know Sarah, a themed party. Have you ever been to Seattle?
