6 Hidden Alley Restaurants In Washington That Are So Worth The Hunt
In Washington, you’ll find restaurants on rooftops, on waterfronts, and in train cars, just to name a few. But believe it or not, some of our best eateries have alley entrances. These are a few of our finest hidden gems.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. The Pink Door, 1919 Post Alley, Seattle
You'd never guess that such a simple pink door in an alley would lead to such a magnificent space. But not only is the Pink Door gorgeous, you'll find some of the tastiest Italian food in the city here, as well as live aerial performances (and burlesque in the lounge on the weekends).
2. Alley Cafe & Catering Co., 214 8th St., Leavenworth
This intimate Italian cafe is located in the alley between 8th and 9th Streets. The food is delicious, and the ambiance is cozy and romantic -- in fact, it was once featured in an article about the best places in town to kiss.
3. Over the Moon Cafe, 709 Opera Aly, Tacoma
Located in Tacoma's historic Opera Alley, Over the Moon Cafe is both incredibly charming and unbelievably enticing. It's a perfect place for a date night or a special celebration with a small group.
4. Steelhead Bar & Grille, 218 N Howard St., Spokane
The Steelhead is located in the heart of downtown Spokane, and they've been serving fancy pub fare with Northwest flair for over a decade. The space is both cozy and upscale, and the food is consistently tasty.
5. Casa Luna, 18830 Front St. NE, Poulsbo
Poulsbo might be Washington's Little Norway, but they also happen to have some pretty tasty Mexican food. The entrance to Casa Luna lies hidden in an alley, and it's well worth the search.
6. Alibi Room, 85 Pike St. Suite 410, Seattle
If you've ever checked out Pike Place Market's notorious gum wall, you may have walked right by the Alibi Room entrance and not even known it. If you ever spot it, don't be afraid to duck inside -- even in a city full of mouthwatering pizza options, this place's pies stand out as some of the best.
These amazing restaurants are all worth the hunt. And so are these
hidden Evergreen State eateries.
