Travel Thursday: Seattle

The Mister and I went to Seattle a little over a month ago. I went to see a client and The Mister hadn’t been before. We stayed in the Hampton Inn and Suites for two nights. It wasn’t close to Pike Place but it was very convenient to the Space Needle, EMP Museum and the monorail.


The first day, we went to Pie and Serious Pie. The next morning we got up early to eat breakfast at Toulouse Petite. We liked it a lot. Then, drove down to Pike Place Market.

I had some macaroons from Le Panier and had to leave to be with my client during the day. The Mister did his own adventures. He love EMP Museum and I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t get to go. For dinner we ate at 5 Spot. The Mister liked the mashed potatoes and I liked my salad with salmon.

The next day, we went to Vancouver. We didn’t have much time to see and do but we went to Davie Village.  I loved their crosswalks. You better work it when crossing the street in Davie Village.

We spent most of our time at Granville Island, we ate at the market, and Stanley Park. We had dinner at Jules Mae in Seattle. It was so good. It is towards the airport, so you’d do best with a rental car. We rode the Central Link light rail back to the city to stay at our hotel for the night, The Artic. It was quite nice. Look at this bath.


Our last day we walked back down towards Pike Place Market and ate at Beecher’s Handmade Cheese (the macaroni!) and Pike Place Chowder.


We got back on the light rail, the Central Link stop is right by The Artic, and headed home. There are more photos of our trip here.
