A Day of Delicious Destination Dining on 19th Ave in Capitol Hill 

It is no secret that Capitol Hill is one of our very favorite Seattle neighborhoods, and we especially love the Steven’s Addition area of Capitol Hill. Like much of Seattle, 19th Ave E has been changing a lot in recent years, and we are absolutely loving all of the fantastic dining options here! There is a little bit of everything—bakeries where you can grab breakfast, laid-back eateries that are perfect for a quick bite or takeout to enjoy at Miller Park, trendy eateries that are perfect for a night out with your besties, and more. 

Here are our recommendations for dining out on 19th Ave in Capitol Hill: 

Breakfast & Brunch: Get the Day Started Right!

Bounty Kitchen is the new brunch game in town, and they’ve got a menu filled with fresh, local, and organic eats. Bounty Kitchen Capitol Hill is where Tallulah’s used to be (sigh, we’re sad to see Tallulah’s go), and they have the perfect patio for brunch in the sun! Scrambles, breakfast sandwiches, oats, griddle cakes and much more are all hearty options here. 

Macrina Bakery & Cafe on 19th Ave in Capitol Hill

For something a little lighter or a great to-go option, stop by Macrina Bakery. They have a few locations throughout Seattle, including right on Aloha and 19th. Fresh bagels, breakfast sandwiches, quiche, etc. are all on the breakfast menu but they of course have an extensive pastry selection as well! And of course, a day in Seattle wouldn’t be complete without a rave-worthy cup of coffee—stop by Fuel Coffee to get your caffeine fix.
