Seattle: Capital Hill

Capital Hill Seattle

Spring break doesn’t always happen for adults, but now that I’m back in school I got a week off to do whatever I want. I had forgotten how amazing that feels. I booked a trip to visit my friends in Seattle. We spent the trip in my two favorite areas, one of which is Capital Hill. I’ll be sharing my other favorite later this week.

I made a very short list of things I wanted to do while in Seattle. On it was have a doughnut at General Porpoise. I read about it in Bon Appetit Magazine as one of the best doughnut shops, so I had to go. The stuffed doughnuts are everything they’re cracked up to be. Inside, the shop is bright and invites you to come in and get out of the rain. My mouth is watering just thinking about them again.

After fueling up on sugar and coffee, I did some shopping. Here are a few of my favorites that I stumbled upon.

Glasswing – Located at Melrose Market, it’s a clothing and home goods boutique where you can buy a crisp blouse and make a succulent terrarium all under the same roof. The store is curated to appropriately represent Seattle.

Totokaelo – This high end clothing store carries sleek fashion for men and women. It’s also curated with home goods and gifts that will impress your friends.

The Elliott Bay Book Company – This is the place to cruise the aisles, read, relax, and drink coffee in the cafe. I ducked in to get out of the rain and found a chair on the top floor where I could people watch.
