Best Sandwich in 2017, The Honey Hole Sandwiches is located in the Capital Hill neighborhood. They serve some of the most delish sandwiches in the area with local ingredients, vegan and gluten free options, and local beer. Give them a try, you wont regret it!

Parking here will only he street side so come prepared to walk a bit.

Via Tribunali

If you are looking to authentic Neapolitan pizza, then look no further! Via Tribunali is located in Capitol Hill, Queen Ann, and Portland. Their pizzas are cooked in a wood-burning brick oven. The bricks are made from the ash from Mt. Vesuvius. Having lived in Italy for a few years, this pizza brought back fond memories. The atmosphere is mellow and the pizzas are unique! Give it a try.


Canon, Best bars in seattle, capitol hill, top bars, seattle university

This is my favorite bar to go grab a drink at when I am in the area. Named #6 of the 50th best bars in the world in 2014, Worlds best spirit collection in 2015 and 2017, the list truly does go on. Here you can find unique cocktails, bartenders that turn making cocktails into an art form, and a small and quaint environment. This bar does not seat many people, so expect to wait if you come in at 8 pm on a Friday or Saturday night.

Needle and Thread

This dimly lit prohibition era bar is another favorite of mine. It has a relaxed small ambiance also. Here you will find very skilled, outgoing bartenders who want to make you an unique drink. I was not sure what I wanted, So my bartender asked what I liked to drink, and if I had any “no” ingredients. He then made me my own drink, with no name, not on the menu, and I absolutely loved it. Since it is a “speak-easy” you have to do some looking to find it. You must visit Tavern Law, another bar and restaurant. One there, to the right you will find a vault door with a phone next to it. You pick up the phone, say your name, and how many seats. They will put you on the list. When it is your turn to be seated, someone will come down and get you. They will see you through the vault door, up a stair case, and into the very intimate seating area.

Largest Bowl of Pho

This is museum is so Seattle! You can browse the first computer that was manufactured, to robots that freely walk around, you can sit in an old living room space and play Atari, or move over to the Xbox One, There are old DOS systems you can actually use, and some 3D printed materials. This is a really cool little museum situated in SoDo for a really reasonable price.

Smith Tower

If you read my previous post, most Seattleites aren’t into the Space Needle. Head over to Smith Tower for an amazing view of Elliot Bay. You can grab a drink up there, too!

Rent a Canoe or Kayak

There is no view or experience better than renting a floating device (canoe, Kayak, hot tub) and hanging out on Lake Union. You can watch the airplanes land, the Ride the Duck go by, other boats waiving, and unparalleled views of the city!

Dicks Drive-In

Seattle’s best burger! Well…that’s what we would have you think. It is our version of In-and-Out Burger. Its cheap, real potato fried, and great shakes. It does close at 2 am, So if you are looking for some late night snacks, find a Seattle Dog. I dont think this place is amazing like many Seattleites, but to each their own!

Molly Moons

Hands down the best ice cream we have to offer. Most ingredients are local, all items are Compostable , and the flavors are so unique. They have locations in Wallingford, Capital Hill, Madrona, Queen Ann, U Village, Redmond, Mercer/19th , and Columbia City.
