Good Seattle Eats and a New Nordstrom Rack!

I often get asked about where to go, eat, see, etc… from readers visiting Seattle.  I usually end up giving a huge long list even though there is no way that people can do all that in one trip, I just love Seattle and all that there is to do and see here that I can’t help but give out all my suggestions!

Seattle has some great restaurants and I could give you tons of recommendations but one of my favorite spots for a super simple but DELICIOUS meal is Serious Biscuit.  All they do is a breakfast sandwich but let me tell you that every single part of the sandwich is amazing.

If you are a Dahlia Lounge/bakery lover, they actually bake all their pastries here so they sell some of their yummy treats here too.
Serious Pie is their pizza restaurant that is upstairs and it’s quite delish too!  The toppings they use aren’t your usual pepperoni .  The combinations seem a little bit weird at first (soft egg and kale on a pizza?) but you gotta just try it out to know how good it is!
Piles of housemade biscuits just waiting to be turned into delightful sandwiches.
I went with the fennel sausage, egg, pepper relish, fontina biscuit.  It’s my favorite!

If you want to do some shopping, make sure to hit up downtown Seattle and go to the flagship Nordstrom store (it’s my favorite store ever!) and Pacific Place, the mall next to it with tons of shopping and eats.  I also love the Nordstrom Rack downtown, it’s where I find most of my best designer bargains!  And what’s even better is Nordstrom Rack is opening a new location in Northgate!  I often hit up the one in Bellevue since every store gets different variety, I like to see what goodies I can uncover at different locations.  I’m excited that they’ve finally opened up another location in Seattle!

    Oh fun post! I love breakfast and will be sure to drag the Hubby to Serious Biscuit next time we're there! And yay for Nordstrom Rack at Northgate – I actually like going to the Nordstrom there when I don't get a chance to head to the downtown location.

    The opening events sound like fun.. but Nordstrom Racks are always SO PACKED even without grand opening events, I can't imagine how it would be when they have all these specials and people running around trying to find hidden hangers and all. It would be MADNESS.

    good lord.. i'm like literally salivating on my laptop right now.. that i LOVEEE fennel sausage.. and that egg and cream sauce.. omgosh that looks SOOO GOOD!! i definitely have to try here next time we visit seattle again!

    YESS the prada's are current season.. i know.. i caved and bought them way before sale.. but i figured black ones wouldn't go on sale anyways.. haha but they have them in black suede.. and in the shop i saw them in a really pretty dark teal suede color!! i hope you find them.. here nordstrom's has the black ones.. and a burgundy/oxblood color!

    i THINK.. these are mine.. but not positive.. because in the store.. i saw the exact same pump.. but they were slightly different heights.. and the SP comfirmed they made the same pump in two different heights.. but i think it's the one below :)!!
