Ray's Boathouse

Ray's Boathouse

Seattle, WA

The view! Get there early to get a spot. Brave it even if it's a little chilly: they have blankets. And the salmon burger is delicious!

Honore Artisan Bakery

Honore Artisan Bakery

Seattle, WA

You'll find limited seating inside as the bakery's focus is not on a full service, sit down experience but rather on its pastry - and their focused approach has paid off. Grab a friend and a couple of chairs on the sidewalk and share a leisurely onion & Gruyere tart -- it's a winner.

Sweetest spot on Ballard Ave, perhaps ALL of Seattle. Quaint spot, supper creative takes on classic desserts ANC where else can you get a milkshake with bourbon? Watcha waiting for?!
