We loved staying at this gorgeous hotel on the waterfront. The rooms were plush with a bit of rustic flair.
The Edgewater had a wonderful happy hour and we loved sitting out on the deck, which appeared to be floating on the water. Their restaurant, SIX SEVEN, is also very good. We especially loved their healthy breakfast options!
Bob’s Redmill Oatmeal: w/ roasted washington apples, organic dates, toasted walnuts, candied ginger, brown butter Vermont maple swirl.
Happy Hour at The Edgewater’s Six Seven restaurant – look at this gorgeous view!

If you’re at Pike Place Market and wanting something sweet, head on over to Le Panier. We love the croissants!
Another fantastic option for coffee!
This restaurant was awesome. It’s Hawaiian themed and comes with plenty of Aloha! We loved the shave ice, fish n’ chips, and Kahlua pork sliders.
This is one of our all-time favorite restaurants, period. It’s in the Fremont area of Seattle and feels like a nice escape from being in the middle of the city. It also happens to be beautiful. We loved the mixed materials and how the restaurant brought the outside in. And most importantly, the food is also phenomenal!
Some of our favorite places to shop have flagships in Seattle, such as Filson and Nordstrom.
Nordstrom – one of our favorites ever!
