Q&A;: Places to Go in Seattle
TreeHugger's own Sean Fisher says, "I am headed to Seattle in a couple of weeks and was looking for some suggestions on cool places to hit when I get there. Any green stores, bars, cafes, etc. I should check out while I am there?" Thanks for asking, Sean! When it comes to green stores, we'd recommend swinging by Greener Lifestyles (we've featured their Round D sofa before) in the Ballard neighborhood, as well as One Earth One Design, whose retail store just opened last month. When it comes to eat & drink, the Emerald City has a lot to offer a TreeHugger's palette. A breakfast of Mighty-O Donuts' 100% organic and vegan pastry goes great with a cup of their organic coffee; lunch from Cyber Dogs' vegetarian hot dogs offers a stylish & unique repast; dinner from Sterling Café, the first certified organic restaurant in the US would make a fitting finish to a day spent in Seattle. Any trip to Seattle wouldn't be complete without some fresh seafood; for an upscale treat, Flying Fish uses 100% organic ingredients, many supplied from a local farm. For more casual dining, Agua Verde uses sustainably harvested fish and seafood to make its famous fish tacos.
Carmelita offers fabulous, savory vegetarian fare, and Café Flora's vegetarian goodies are equally good for lunch, brunch, dinner or dessert. This is just the tip of the iceberg, though; there's lots more, courtesy of the Seattle Green Map and Sustainable Style Foundation's Seattle source book.
