The Sites of Seattle
it was a partial threecleversister reunion in early May. I had the privilege of tipping cocktails with Marie at a wedding in Nash-Vegas one weekend and the very next I was welcoming Sara and little E to the Pacific Northwest — Seattle. Being in Seattle is lovely because there are all sorts of things for the foodie in me to enjoy and gush over. It was E’s first trip to Seattle, so we had to make sure he got the best that it had to offer. Just a quick survey our stops:
Cafe Nouveau. This is the acclaimed West Seattle bakery. Rumor has it, the baker upset the French at a world reknown baking contest. And, here he is, in the the corner of West Seattle producing incredibly delicacies that the French are grudgingly jealous of. My mom bought my birthday cake (the big 3-0) from there.
The FIRST Starbucks. Coffee had its start in Seattle — any Seattle tourism guide will tell you as much. Yes, we went to the original Starbucks. This is the original decal. A little scandalous, don’t you think? Little E didn’t partake of any coffee — it was too late, he was napping, getting ready for Pike’s Place.
