Beach
“Beautiful spot for a classic Seattle sunset! Watch the sun drop behind the Olympics and light up the Sound. There are tons of spots to grill out and have a bonfire on the beach. ”

Neighbourhood
“So much to see on Ballard Way. Lots of shops, music venues, restaurants, bars, walk down to the Ballard locks or Golden gardens for a beach sunset, and catch some football at one of the eclectic bars on the way back. Sunday Markets are the best for local amazing produce”

Breakfast Spot

“Little Italian eatery that serves breakfast, lunch and brunch. Beware the line - go to my sister's for a Kouign Aman while you wait!”
  • 76 locals recommend
Pizza Place
$$
“Sharply dressed diners flock to this hip eatery for its uncomplicated menu items, so popular that the owners opened excellent cocktail and burger bar Essex next door to serve as a waiting room for the crowds. Once in the doors at Delancey, diners partake in some of the city’s ultimate thin-crust wood-fired pizza and lovely salads. Two-day-cured dough is the base for the likes of zesty tomato sauce, spicy salami, and onions, and the Jersey salad is a crunchy treat, followed by the must-eat chocolate chip cookie with gray salt.”
