First, you’ll want to start off the day on the right foot with a hearty breakfast so you have energy for everything that awaits in Georgetown! Stop at The Hangar Cafe, and if it’s sunny out, sit on their patio. Crepes (savory and sweet), waffles (think Belgian waffles topped with lemon panna cotta or caramelized pear nutella…) and more are all on the menu here.
Or, check out Hudson, a delicious spot with attitude. Their website boldly claims that it’s “no place for a church-going woman,” and you can expect scratch-made, locally sourced eats. Hudson’s scrambles and hearty diner fare does not disappoint!
SHOP SHOP SHOP
Georgetown Trailer Park Mall is like nothing you’ve ever seen, and it’s exactly what it sounds like artists, makers, and collectors sell their unique wares out of trailers.
For comic book fans, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is reason enough to come to Georgetown. Not only are they a publisher of some of the world’s greatest cartoonists (click here for examples and get ready to be impressed), but they sell some rare, discounted, and exclusive merchandise as well.
When it’s time for that mid-day fuel up, Georgetown Liquor Company is where it’s at. Don’t judge a book by its cover—this dive bar serves up some unique (and incredibly delicious) vegan and vegetarian sandwiches. (Play on their world class gaming consoles while you’re there, too.)
If you happen to be in the neighborhood when Georgetown Art Attack is happening, then even better! Art takes over the streets of Georgetown, and all of the art galleries in Georgetown open up during this time.
Ciudad Grill (a restaurant and bar) and Bar Ciudad (a cocktail bar and rotisserie) are side by side and each offer something different. Bar Ciudad offers both indoor and outdoor seating, and you can order a drink right at the window. At Ciudad Grill, you can expect a full dining experience that’s described as “flavors from the East, vibes from the West.”
Feeling fancy? You’ll need reservations in advance for this one, but The Corson Building is a destination dining experience. It’s a unique (and pricey) dining experience, but worth it if you’re interested in trying some of the best dining that Seattle has to offer.
