From artisanal pizza to tapas to special entrées, this bistro in West Seattle features a mix of everything on its menu -- including breathtaking views of the Olympic Mountains. While the space may be small, it hosts two wine bars in house for tastings and more casual dining.
Ampersand Pantry & Cafe is a local grocer that also serves homemade breakfast (think mini cinnamon rolls and ham & egg sandwiches) and carries beer and wine from all over the world.
Pepperdock is definitely the place to get your ice cream off Alki because of all the awesome flavors like bubble gum and cotton candy. Plus, there are some fantastic fish and chips that are a must try too!
This beachfront version of the Phinney Mextaurant features a very similar patio, and is decked with all sorts of funky South-of-the-border art. They're serving up traditional comida like burritos/tacos/tortas stuffed with various meats, like sautéed shrimp, and more.
Spud Fish & Chips has been a landmark in the neighborhood since 1969 partially because of their outstanding service, but more likely because their fish and chips are so good, down to the last bite.
"Ma Kai" means "by the sea," and that's exactly where this waterfront establishment is located. Serving up tasty tacos made from fresh ingredients, this Hawaiian-Korean fusion restaurant is all about finding the best of both worlds and melting them together. There's also a killer beer selection, and you can purchase "Nunya", the secret sauce used by the restaurant on many of its dishes, receiving a free slider or taco with each jar purchase.
It took 10 years, but Cassis reopened its doors to the hungry masses at Alki beach. With seasonal menus (they change monthly) and country French food, it'll keep you coming back again and again to try something new each time.
If the location isn't enough to get you there -- it's right in front of the beach and in the middle of all the shopping (!) -- then maybe the crazy delicious food will. Be sure to get a couple of pints too, after all this is an Irish pub.
