Grocery or Supermarket
“Brand new store with lots of food options: deli, hot bar, salads, tacos and pizza. 12 mins by rt. 7, in Columbia City.”
  • 130 locals recommend
Bakery
$$
“Some of the best bread and baked goods in the country are about a block away. (No joke: Head baker Evan Andres has been nominated for three James Beard Awards.) It’s hard to go wrong here, but our favorites include the breads, the ham and cheese croissant, the salami sandwich, and the tortas. Also, the cakes.”
  • 94 locals recommend
Diner
$$
“Bustling breakfast through late-lunch, this American diner is known for serving hardy comfort food in a comfortable setting. Cash or CC, but bring cash for "Geraldine's cash back". ”
  • 97 locals recommend
Lounge
$$
“A jazz club in Columbia City, it has live music 7 nights a week, check their calendar!”
  • 65 locals recommend
Pizza Place
$$
“Tutta Bella treats its employees well and their wood-fired Neapolitan pizza is world-class. There’s a nice bar/coffee shop on one side, and a large dining room on the other. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great spot for kids. ”
  • 63 locals recommend
Indie Cinema
“First run movies in the historic Ark Lodge building. Thankfully, you don't have to drive to the 'burbs to catch a great flick. The staff is super nice and it has a very local vibe. Walk down and grab some popcorn, then splurge on an ice cream from Molly Moon's after (next door)”
  • 69 locals recommend
Italian Restaurant
$$
“Only a 10-minute walk from our guest house, this is one of the best Italian restaurants we've been to in Seattle (and we love Italian food). Their menu rotates regularly - they don't even have a paper menu, the items of the day are up on a chalk board. Excellent service and everything we've ever had is incredible. ”
  • 58 locals recommend
Music Venue
“Built in 1917, this ex-vaudeville theater hosts acts from a range of genres.”
  • 51 locals recommend
Bar
$$
“Great local bar with great cocktails. Casual space - good for late night drinks and light food. Good sandwiches for lunchtime.”
  • 54 locals recommend
Gastropub
$$
“Hawaiian-inflected fare and great drinks. Some of our favorites are the Aloha Fries and the Musubi, a sort of giant cousin to sushi. If Morgan (tall, bald, thick-rimmed glasses) is behind the bar, get a cocktail.”
  • 47 locals recommend
Ice Cream Shop
$
“This beloved local chain has amazing ice cream in original flavors, old-school arcade games, and beer. If you’re an ice cream connoisseur, and like getting involved in local controversies, you may have to try both Full Tilt and Molly Moon’s (4822 Rainier Avenue South)--which has its own loyal following--and decide which one you like best.”
  • 58 locals recommend
Neighbourhood
“Great food, drinks, art gallery, live music and other shows and shopping. Very Seattle local vibes!”
  • 57 locals recommend
Coffee Shop
$
“Super-charged ristretto espresso (truly some of the best in town), as well as sandwiches and amazing buttery waffles. Also a great place to work or read a book. Open until 6.”
  • 55 locals recommend
Caribbean Restaurant
$$
“Cozy casual Caribbean-Southern spot with vegetarian options, tropical drinks, and weekly live music.”
  • 45 locals recommend
Pub
$$
“This is a must visit to me, and another spot that walks the line between Food Scene and Drinks & Nightlife. The beers and ciders on tap here are an excellent sampling of local ales, as well as guest taps. However, the food... MUST TRY THE SPICY TUNA SANDWICH! My mouth is watering thinking about it...”

American Restaurant

“Sports on a million screens. It's silly how much time my sports loving family spends in this Columbia City establishment.”
