Espresso To Go ETG Coffee


This is a very charming yet very tiny place. And when I say tiny it is really tiny. There is only one table inside. But on a sunny day, you can sit outside on these fabulous vintage chairs!

If you want to take your cup to go, no problem: ETG stands for Espresso To Go!
Think of this place next time you want to take a break from your walk along the Burke Gilman trail, or while shopping in Fremont.

Smith Tower

Last year the Smith Tower celebrated its 100th anniversary. The Smith Tower opened on July 4, 1914 and at that time it was with its 42 stories the tallest building outside New York City.

Check out amazing views from the observation desk.

And did you know that one family is living in the pyramid-shaped apartment at the top? Read an interesting NewYork Times article on the subject, here.

Brunch at Oddfellows

These past weekends we’ve had brunch at different places in Georgetown, Capitol Hill, and Wallingford.

One of them is Oddfellows Cafe & Bar in Capitol Hill.

The ambiance of Oddfellows is very casual (but what isn’t casual in Seattle?). I like the lively atmosphere of this cool restaurant, perfect for a brunch with the family or friends.

I like the vintage style details in the décor, as well as the flowers in vases on raw wood tables.

The Food we ordered was very tasty comfort food.
– Home made Biscuits with scrambled eggs. Biscuits were fresh and fluffy
– Eggs Benedict with avocado and tomato.
– Breakfast Panini eggs, bacon, provolone, tomato.
– I had the Veggie Hash skillet with lemon ricotta and fried egg that I highly recommend.

Don’t go there for an intimate lunch, it is loud and you can be close to people.

If there is a wait, you can always go to Elliott Bay Book Company next door, or the music store that sells vinyls across the street.
