TRIED & TESTED: ODD FELLOWS SEATTLE

June 24th, 2011

Karianne Vermaas is a big fan op Petite Passport and travelled to Seattle to discover the hot things over there. Like Odd Fellows for example:

Most striking feature:

“The lightness and brightness of this place. Love the high ceiling, grey & white walls on one side and a brick wall on the other side. The scuffed wood tables and chairs add to the light and lively ambiance. The patio at the back is definitely worth a try, especially for one of the nice cocktails, such as ‘ode to St. Anne’s‘.”

TRIED & TESTED: GRIMMS BUTTERFLY LOUNGE

June 17th, 2011

Contributor Karianne Vermaas is doing a road trip through the USA and spotted this cafe in Seattle:

Most striking feature:

“The long wood cafeteria style tables with attached chairs. The interior is all made of reused items from the Seattle area. One wall for example is made of old keyholes and another one of wood from an old barn. Drinks come in jars and the food is just very, very good! Upstairs, in the special (and very dark) lounge, you’ll see colorful butterflies from Brasil in glass casings all around you. And the staff is really good, fast & friendly too (without the ‘obligatory friendliness’). Great spot!”

TRIED & TESTED: SITKA & SPRUCE SEATTLE

June 11th, 2011

Contributor Karianne Vermaas went to Seattle and visited Sitka & Spruce:

Most striking feature:

“The open kitchen (with hard working cooks) and the long communal butcher-block table that is attached to it. A little bit hidden, in the back of Melrose Market, you can find Sitka & Spruce. This place really manages to create a cool and yet easy-going vibe. On most tables you’ll find some fresh flowers, probably from the flower stall next to it. They offer delicious currant scones with citrus marmalade (we tried them), but their lunch menu also sounds great (it was too early for that unfortunately). Definitely a place to visit while in Seattle!”
