This has one of the best yarn selections in Seattle! They have a large variety and are always getting new yarns in. The shop offers a mediocre selection of books and needles. They have a moderate selection of classes and offer individual instruction at a reasonable price.
This consignment store only carries quality goods and nearly everything is a bargain! I always check here for anything I want before buying new. I have never been disappointed in the items I have bought here! They are really helpful, too! If they don't have what you are looking for when you go there, wait a week or two and go back - the stock is constantly changing!
The replicas of the 15th-Century Ming Dynasty camels flanking the entrance to the Seattle Asian Art museum make a grand entrance to this small, quiet museum tucked away in Volunteer Park in Seattle's Capital Hill neighborhood. The exibits change frequently and the permanent exibit houses a good variety. The museum has scheduled docent-led tours and a kid's summer camp. Call for details!
Dr. Vo is a great chiropractor, and very friendly. His appointments run on-time and he is patient and willing to answer any questions you have. He accepts most medical plans and gives good advice for how to avoid back problems/strain.
There is a reason that more families in Seattle choose to have their babies at Swedish than anywhere else! All of the birthing rooms are private and you have your own nurse in 12-hour shifts! I had my son here a year and a half ago, and it was definately a great experience. The nurses and doctors are caring and supportive!
45th Street clinic provides great health care for the whole family. And, since it is part of the Community Health Care Centers, it offers a sliding scale payment for those that don't have medical insurance!
Sisters is a great place to go for a fast, nutritious and delicious lunch. The menu boasts a reasonable variety of sandwiches, soups and salads. Most of their sandwiches are made on their foccacia bread! (Yummy!) The only drawback is the limited seating and most of that is at a long eating bar.
Three Girls is one of the best bakeries in Seattle. Nestled in the bustlng Pike Place Market, it offers not only great food, but a fascinating atmosphere! The bread selection is enough to boggle the mind! The lunches are good and cheap. And the pastries -- hold me back! My personal favorite are the chocolate drop cookies! Enjoy!
Uptown Espresso is a friendly, neighborhood coffee shop. The baristas are always in a good mood, there is plenty of seating for those who want to linger and the selection of pastries is out-of-this world!!! Not to mention, Uptown is home to the "velvet foam!"
Palomino not only serves great food, it's atmosphere is classy and friendly. The wait staff goes out of their way to help you and accomodate any special requests. Their lunch menu (on the cafe/bar side) is very reasonably priced and tasty! The Chop Chop salad can't be beat!
