Take advantage of Seattle's Scandinavian roots. Take a viking cooking class, learn how to pickle herring, drink some aquavit, or pick up some crispbreads and ligonberry preserves. And yes, I am including the cafeteria of a certain furniture making giant.
Where else can you take a $5 class on making pickled herring? They also have lutefisk dinners, other Nordic cooking classes & holiday fests. Friendly folks, adorable space.
Furniture, obvs, but don't forget their little cafeteria has some serious bargain meals & free deals. Also, occasional Swedish food events like all-you-can-eat crawfish (kräftskiva)!
Enjoy some pommes frites & with an aquavit while sitting at a viking ship bar. And yes, lots of vintage pix of naked ladies, in case you somehow don't have enough access to images of nude women.
If you're looking for Scandinavian pastries, crackers, ligonberry jam, caviar in a tube or vodka-filled chocolates, this is your spot. Very friendly service, too.
Monthly pancake breakfast is a great treat for families. Swedish happy hours with aquavit & Swedish specialties are great for grown-ups. Beautiful views & friendly staff.
In addition to the year-round displays, they also have a great holiday festival, viking cooking classes & other culinary events.
