[Northwestern USA trip] Day 4 in Seattle, WA - Original Starbucks at Pike Place Market + Snoqualmie Falls
For today's outing, I was decked out in an Armani Exchange pull-over sweater which I had picked up at the Premium Outlet! My day started out with a visit to the Pike Place Market which was nearby. We took a 15-minute walk from our apartment to get to the area.
Our plan was to firstly visit the Original Starbucks, which is also known as the world's first Starbucks outlet. It's located right in the heart of Seattle, directly opposite the Pike Place Market - It's a location with a lot of history!
These are the original Starbucks logos!!
The exterior was preserved due to its historic significance ; You'll find yourself hopping into a coffee-shop from yesteryear when you enter the store!
Only special Pike Place tumblers/mugs are only available at the original Starbucks store to add to your collection.
I sipped on my hot Chai Latte and struck a pose to emulate myself being back in the 1970's!
After we were done with our drinks and photo-taking session at the store, we headed down to Pike Place Market.
We shared a Dungeness Crab Cocktail which cost us USD11. It was awesomely delicious and I can taste the freshness and sweetness of the Dungeness Crab. It was definitely worth the hefty price paid!
Baby loved the food served at Lowell's Restaurant which we had visited on our first day in Seattle. Therefore, we we re-visited this eatery place again for our brunch.
We enjoyed our food very much, even though the service was mediocre. The food made up for it I guess! We highly recommend this eatery place when you are visiting Seattle/The Pike Place Market!
After our meal, we drove to Snoqualmie Falls for some scenic photography and small trail hiking. The journey was about an hour's drive away from Seattle.
There is a 1.7-mile interpretive trail from the upper falls viewpoints to the lower falls viewpoint. This hike trail is good for beginners.
We walked over to the Salish Lodge & Spa for an early dinner. It is a Washington State resort getaway, perfect for those seeking an authentic and memorable escape, as the resort is overlooking the magnificent Snoqualmie Falls.
The Attic is an upscale restaurant which is located at the Salish Lodge & Spa, and we waited for about 15 minutes for our table.
It is a causal yet comfortable eatery place which offers small bites, handcrafted sandwiches and delicious pizzas baked in an artisan stone hearth. The Attic also serves a fine selection of beverages, cocktails, beers and wines by the glass.
If you are looking for a nice venue to spend time with your loved ones over a nice meal, then The Attic at Salish Lodge & Spa makes an appealing choice!
On our way back to Downtown Seattle, we dropped by Walmart and Nordstrom Rack for some shopping!
