This historic landmark isn't just a favorite spot for tourists to visit, it's the center of the city's food universe. So many terrific options, you're going to want to stay and graze all day.
This place has new owners, so give it another try. Always ask to see the harvest tag for shellfish and you'll come off as a savvy seafood shopper. Crab and shrimp cocktails are a fine snack to munch on while exploring Pike Place Market.
This is one of those dream spots where you want to order one of everything. At lunch that includes a dynamite oyster po'boy, the sloppy good barbecue pork sammie and a pork belly banh mi. Evenings should involve seafood, letting the kitchen showcase whatever is fresh and in season. All meals should be prefaced by the crab-topped deviled eggs and an expertly crafted cocktail.
When greeted at this stylish shop by an offer of chocolate, there's only one correct answer. YES please! The salted caramels are Fran's most famous treat, but you'd be a fool not to order a hot cocoa, and drink it there. (Where it's served in large bowls for sipping, along with a dish of whipped cream on the side.)
