Spent two days in Seattle/Tacoma last week (college tours)...thanks for all the advice on a previous post.
Stayed at Waterfront Marriott...convenient location, nice hotel, obscene parking charges - but I guess all Seattle hotels are like that!
Went to Pike's Place around 11 AM, had some mac&cheese and tomato soup at Beecher's - it was inexpensive and quick - that's about the best I can say about it.
Walked up to Starbucks Reserve on Pike...really cool and different than every other Starbucks...much swankier, but virtually the same price. Well worth a visit, especially for Starbucks addicts.
Had some ice cream had Mora on Bainbridge...wouldn't serve samples until you bought ice cream (weird...how do I know I'm going to like it...but I guess that's what they do in Italy)...huge portion, hit the spot. Not destination worthy, though.
Dinner at Tavolata...good vibe, nice room. Fantastic burrata appetizer, huge pastas. Excellent service. Would definitely return.
Breakfast next day at Le Pichet...fantastic oj, cafe au lait, baguette and ham/egg dish. Very inexpensive too. Favorite restaurant of trip.
Had a couple beers at Harmon Brewery in Tacoma...perfectly nice bar with decent local beer. Food looked pretty standard...didn't order anything.
Burger the next day at Goofy Goose by UPS in Tacoma...solid fast food type burger with friendly service. Teriyaki chicken looked solid as well.
Thanks for all the tips.
