Food, Wine, and Laughs
Great Location! Close to the Market and to the Pier to catch the Ferry to Bainbridge Island. Room had floor to ceiling windows and was huge! The room was modern and very clean. Loved the Bed - lots of pillows :). Ordered room service as we arrived later at night, and the food was delivered promptly and was very tasty! The pool was indoor/outdoor, and small hottub was available. Check-in/out was a breeze.
Its a must do/see regardless how many times you have been to Seattle. Great people, fresh food, and lots of variety. There are many tours that can be taken in the market. We have been on all Savour Seattle Tours, the night/haunted tour and Seattle Bites and we can say we learned something new on each of the tours. Must taste: Piroshky, Piroshky!, Daily Dozen Donuts, to name a couple :)
We took the Pike Place Market tour last year and this year we took the Gourmet Food and Chocolate Tours. The Chocolate tour is ALOT of chocolate, so they give you take away baggies so that you don't eat it all, and you can save up for some of the more perishable items (gelato, sipping chocolate). our tour guide was extremely passionate and knowledgeable. The chocolate Krinkle cookie was awesome! Upo conclusion of the morning tour, we were informed that there was a cancellation for the afternoon Gourmet Tour, as a result we headed over to complete that tour! And while a few stops were repeated on the tour they offered different samples and different information about the city so it was worth it! Between the two tours we were touring/snacking for 7 hours - but hey , what better way to learn about a city than to eat your way through it...ha, ha!
A great evening of comedy at the Moore Theater! Well priced, laughed the whole time, a perfect way to spend valentine's day!
Unfortunately we came to Seattle thinking that we did not need dinner reservations for Valentine's Day (I know shame on us). As we were doing our food tours we asked for reservations but were met by the expected "we are fully booked". Then came the surprise of the evening...Serious Pie is only two blocks away from the Moore Theatre so after the comedy show we decided we would order pizzas to take back to the hotel. Once we arrived we were informed that they had seating available if we wanted to eat in the restaurant, we jumped at eating in the restaurant and had an awesome Valentine's Day dinner - since we both LOVE pizza! This pizza was amazing!! Whether you eat in or take one to go - try it anyway you can get it.
We were looking for a different perspective to take a picture of Seattle, so we boarded the ferry for Bainbridge Island. It was a nice getaway from the city for a few hours, with cute little shops and a nice walk.
We would love to say that we came across this hidden gem on our own, but credit goes to Rachel Ray, as we came across this awesome breakfast recommendation on the food network website. The french toast is a MUST! as are the Mimosas! Make sure you call for a reservation though, all the locals like to go here as well!!
Yet another unique food tour in the market. Out of the three food tours we have done in Seattle none of them overlapped with the other, so again it is a unique tasting opportunity! We were fortunate to have a tour with only one other couple, which made the experience a lot more intimate and we were able to ask tonnes of questions. The tour guide added stops that were not on the main itinerary and displayed a true passion for not only the city but her friends int he market!
