Seattle isn’t exactly the Italian capital of the world, but there are a few spots that are well worth the visit. I’ve posted this place before, but I wanted to do a review just for good measure. We went there last night, and apparently I’m not the only person who agrees that the food is fresh, well made and an absolute pleasure to eat.
I’ve loved this place since the first time we went there, last memorial day weekend, and after last night I just had to share. This spot is small, quaint and you might even drive passed it, if you didn’t know to stop.
Ordered: Spaghetti Bolognese, House salad, Bruschetta (which is the best thing ever)
Where: 5909 15th Ave NW Seattle, WA 98107
Went: Friday October 28th, 2016
Wifi: Don’t know, don’t care.
Reservation Needed: No, but it might be a good idea to call ahead to see if you need one. Every time we’ve been there it’s getting busier. They do take reservations, and you can call for pick-up.
To bun or not to bun? That is the question. “What kind of bun would you like?” is more of the question. I was so glad to find this little shop this week, among my lunchtime shenanigans with my coworkers. At this shop I had, what has now OFFICIALLY been documented as the best hamburger of my life (even though the people at the front counter would like to add that it is like a hamburger, not a hamburger…it’s a hamburger) and I got a salad the size of Rhode Island. In addition (oh yeah, there’s more) I also ordered some delicious apricot soda, which was completely weird at first, and then my favorite thing ever. The location of this venue, while seeming a bit on the rough side, is worth pressing through to get to this delicious food. I’m no foodie – but I’ll be raving about it for years to come.
Ordered: Coca-cola braised pork baked roll, seasonal salad, apricot soda
Where: 670 Larkin St San Francisco, CA 94109
Went: Thursday January 7th, 2016
Wifi: ? (You’ll be too busy eating to notice)
Reservation Needed: No
Tip: Do your research to see if you would prefer a baked or a steamed roll!
This little darling cafe feels like you’ve passed back through time when you walk through the doors. While feeling like I should have been writing the next great American novel about the war torn past I never had, I enjoyed a pot of the most delightful tea and nibbled on lemon squares that were out of this world.
The space is small and intimate, so I can imagine it could get crowded quite easily during rush hours, but when we went it was just simply us, one older gentleman and the server – absolute bliss.
Ordered: Black Tea, Lemon dessert
Where: 19 rue du Parc Royal 75003 Paris, France (Marais Nord, 3ème, Marais)
Went: Friday, March 6th, 2015 around 10am
Wifi: Nope. In fact there’s a sign that says to leave your computer
