Beacon Hill has been said to be up and coming for over a decade now but I think it's been just right all along. Join me for a look at some of the hill's treasures.
Love. This. Place. Who knew lawn bowling could be so much fun? Well somebody because they built these lovely courts and a 50's modern club house with sweeping views of water, mountains and the down town skyline--and I'm glad they did. Members are happy to explain the game to those who drop by.
Great off the beaten path bakery with generous portions and good prices. Friendly staff is a plus.
This long time social service agency offers ESL, GED classes, day care and Cinco de Mayo & Dia de los Muertos celebrations in an historic school building that was aquired via a sit in. If you want to support la causa attend one of their great tamale making classes.
Love. This. Place. Fresh, flavorful Filipina food is offered up plate lunch style in this bright, sunny Beacon Hill room. Friendly and attentive service and great prices make it a can't miss.
Everything is good.
Charming little bar & restaurant with cheery decor, friendly service and tasty affordable Mexican fare. Full bar.
Mexican and Salvadoran fare served up quick and cheap at several lovely tin tables in the corner of a grocery store. Go!
Attentive, knowledgeable service is the key at this low key commuter bike shop. Sales + Repair.
This bright little room serves up fresh, tasty Mexican bites and bevs (tacos, tortas, horchata) at a good price. Family owned and ran, it's a great place take kids.
Super accessible municipal course with a comfy club house. Low fees, central location and no attitude make this a go to course for new and experienced golfers alike.
Beacon Hill scored big when they became home to this charming neighborhood joint which serves up wood-fired pies, small plates and seasonal salads. Get there early (they don't take reservations) and don't miss out on the grilled octopus with heirloom peperonata--a bargain at just 10 bucks.
Burgers and beers are the reason to stop by this well appointed Beacon Hill newcomer.
This nearly 10 acre park is perched on the west side of Beacon Hill and has stunning views of downtown and Elliot Bay. It's also home to an off-leash area, picnic tables, a small playground and public restrooms.
