Restaurants in Seattle

Seattle is well known for its European vibe and variety of restaurants. Go to the Waterfront for quick bites, like Piroshky Piroshky's Russian pastries and Le Pichet's Parisian-style menu. Elsewhere, the Pacific Northwest's influence pervades, with fish and fresh flavours inspiring restaurants like Downtown's Greek Lola and Kirkland's Café Juanita. Capitol Hill and Chinatown are best for burgers, Thai food and neighbourhood cafés serving hearty breakfasts. Tipping is expected - 15% is the going rate.

    This little cafe is an offshoot of the popular Campagne, a much more formal French restaurant, and though it's in the heart of the Pike Place Market neighborhood, it's a world away from the market madness. It's a great place to duck in here for lunch and escape the crowds.  Most people leave this dark, cozy place feeling that they've discovered some secret hideaway.
