Seattle has retained the relaxed look and feel that grew around the grunge movement in the 80s and 90s, for which the city became famous, and this goes for its eateries as well. And that’s to be expected – this is a place where you can stroll down the street smoking a joint after all. Here are our tips and suggestions for the best places to eat and what you can enjoy there.

12. Elliot’s Oyster House

Not to miss for those with a sweet tooth. This excellent bakery will provide an unforgettable experience. You could also try Dahlia Bakery and more specifically their coconut pie, which is referred to as the best dessert in town by locals. All Tom Douglas restaurants have it too.
