The Seattle Waterfront has nearly 30 dining options to choose from, whether you're looking for a quick lunch as you rush to catch the ferry, a leisurely brunch on a Sunday morning, or an elegant dinner with breathtaking views of Elliot Bay.

Seattle Waterfront Dining

Fish and chips, pizza and burgers are readily available at open-air vendors along Alaskan Way. Just park along the street for about $4 dollars an hour (free on Sundays), or scope out one of the many garages available. Hop out of your car, grab a bite and enjoy a picnic lunch at Waterfront Park or on one of the many piers, and take in the amazing view of the sound and the Olympic Mountains.

Plan on catching a ferry or charter boat to explore more of the Northwest? Start your day off on a high note with a donut or fritter and latte from one of the many bakeries and coffee shops situated along the waterfront. Or, if you have some extra time, cozy up to some smoked salmon eggs Benedict and enjoy a savory northwest breakfast.
