Leschi has an amazing wine selection crammed into one small grocery aisle. You can choose from a wide variety of regions and prices, with each wine personally tasted by the friendly wine buyer, Ed. Feel free to ask for special requests as Ed has a knack for tracking down even the most hard to find products. The back room has an extensive inventory so the store's small size is deceptive as they maintain an extensive inventory. The pricing is very reasonable- with discounts given to case orders and if you use your Debit card to pay.
PROS: Very low prices and a broad selection
CONS: Parking can be a little challenging
If you are visiting Seattle you must experience a local treasure- Top Pot Doughnuts. There are a variety of flavors ranging from lemon to chocolate each baring a unique and clever name. The doughnuts are also available in a few select Starbucks locations- but are best consumed right out of the oven at the Top Pot cafe.
CONS: Certainly not a place for dieters
If you like designer clothing, accessories and hone furnishings- check out the new outlet mall in Marysville. They have a huge selection of top name designers like Burberry, Coach and Calvin Klein as well as a selection of classic retailers such as Nike, Puma and J Crew. The prices are much lower than in regular retail stores and the selection is often larger. Definitely a destination for holiday shopping.
PROS: Great variety of stores as well as a nice food court and relaxed atmosphere
CONS: Outdoor shopping might be uncomfortable in cold weather or heavy rains
Cascade Animal Clinic, located in downtown Monroe, offers a variety of service for your pet. We have received exceptional service each time we have taken our puppy in and it is very clear that the staff is truly passionate about caring for animals. They offer prompt service to avoid uncomfortable waiting room experiences with frightened and/or overexcited animals and typically usher you into a private room right away. I have called several times with quick questions and have always been connected immediately to a vet free of charge. After we adopted our puppy the vet even took the time to verify his microchip was indeed placed and the number was accurate
Kirkland Tire Factory handles all your car repair needs from extensive repairs to regular oil changes. I have taken my vehicle in for the past several years and each time I am impressed with the fast and friendly service. My car recently required an extensive repair which totaled $1500.00. Kirkland Tire Factory beat the dealership price by 50% and had the best rate (by far) of several area repair shops. More importantly I have always found them to be honest and ethical, frequently telling me (in layman's terms) exactly what needs to be done and why. In fact, I once brought in a flat tire and they repaired the flat free of charge and sent me on my way in under 30 minutes. I highly recommend visiting this shop for all your repair and maintenance needs.
Right in downtown Langley is the Star Store, which offers a variety of clothing and gifts. Each item is very unique and most things can not be found in regular department stores. The products are excellent quality although they tend to be on the expensive side. Overall it is a wonderful place to shop for souvenirs and gifts. There is also a Bistro upstairs which has excellent wines and lighter foods.
PROS: Great selection of unique clothing and gifts
CONS: Prices tend to be a little high
The staff at Physician's Eye Clinic is superb- prompt and pleasant and made the entire experience painless. I cancelled my first appointment with no problems and was rescheduled for a much more convenient time. Once I arrived I was immediately seen by a nurse for the testing process and the doctor promptly followed. I appreciated their concern for my time and the efficiency with which they ran the office. I would highly recommend visiting this clinic for all of your eye care needs.
you enjoy condscending and arrogant sales people. We attempted to trade in our Golf for a Tourag recently and were treated so shabbily by the sales manager of Pignataro we left almost immediately. After a staff member quoted us one price, he virtually doubled the price and then proceeded to criticize the staff member's stupidity in front of other co-workers. The whole experience was extremely distasteful and I will never purchase a vehicle from Pignataro again.
visit Queen Anne's Cafe Ladro. I have been to this shop on more occasions than I care to remember and every single time I have recieved painfully slow service. The staff almost seems to delight in maximizing the wait times and frequently ignore the customers altogether to fully concentrate on conversations amongst themselves. The product is consistent and good, but only stop by if you have serious time to kill.
After visiting several area stores looking for wedding stationary, I was pleasantly surprised with the exceptional service at the Lynnwood Papyrus. The staff was attentive and friendly and helped me to select the perfect invitations. The invites shipped promptly and a staff member contacted me after to be sure I was happy with the result. One item did not ship on time and Papyrus doubled my order completely free of charge.
