Foodie Finds: 5 Best Places to Eat in West Seattle
While there are many great places to eat in West Seattle, here are five of my favorites:
Famous for their delicious homemade ice cream. People come from all over Seattle to get this ice cream. Also serves sandwiches and other deli items.
4721 California Avenue SW
Northwest/fusion cuisine, notable for their commitment to locally sourced ingredients. Local beer, wine, veggies, cheese, meats, fish, and more. Definitely a local resource! Don't be surprised - the place is small and you may have to wait for a table.
7902 35th St. SW
Best Thai food in Seattle, both authentic and fantastic. The spicy eggplant is melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and is made with homemade chili paste. Watch out for the lines - this is a crazy busy place, all the time. I went in last week to get takeaway - every seat was full, the bar was full, the waiting area was full, and there were many takeaway orders waiting for pickup - they are that busy. You know it is good because of the crowds.
3520 SW Genesee Street
The best local hangout for pizza. Known for their extra large slices. Folks come in, have a beer, and hang out with their friends.
4718 California Ave SW
Located at the Junction, which is the "hip" little strip/ cluster of activity on California Ave SW, and on the same block as Husky Deli and Talarico's.
The Master Baker is William Leaman, who Captained the USA Team in the Coupe du Monde de Boulangerie in 2005 and won, IN FRANCE!
Simply put, the best patisseries in Seattle, maybe the Northwest! French treats of all kinds, both savory and sweet, delight the eye and pleasure the mouth.
Their espresso is good and the ambience is right to sit with friends and family, savoring the experience.
(Lines can go out the door and down the block, so go early!)
4737 California Ave SW
