Eltana’s Bagels

These are my favorite bagels in Seattle: hand-rolled, dense and wood-fired Bagels.  You can buy a dozen, keep them in your freezer, and enjoy them later one at a time. They even give you bags to freeze the bagels in!

I like to have lunch there in a casual and nice ambiance thanks to the friendly staff.  You can choose your favorite kind of bagel (Plain, Sesame, Poppy, Wheat, Cinnamon Raisin, Gluten Free,…), then choose a savory or sweet spread: Date Walnut Cream Cheese, Pomegranate Berry Cream Cheese, Fig Apricot Compote, Almond Butter, Za’atar and Scallion Cream Cheese, Lox Spread, Harissa Hummus, and more. You can also order a garnish sandwich.

People from the East Coast may even say these bagels are good… for the West Coast!

I like the art on the wall: a giant Crossword puzzle by artist Justin Ken Elder. And if you are bored or by yourself, ask for a copy of the crossword of the week.

Skillet Street Food
is 10 years old!

Skillet is 10 years old! Yes, it all began in 2007 with a cool old Airstream Food Truck. At that time, there were not that many Food Trucks around the city.

Throwback to Summer 2008 when we discovered how tasty and cool Street Food could be!

That day, we had the Thai cured duck confit with rice, coconut curry and peanuts and “The” Burger with Kobe beef, arugula and the famous Bacon Jam!

Skillet is a good option if you are hungry for some tasty and creative comfort food. It is a little pricey but this is the price for quality ingredients.

Back in 2017:

Here’s where you can find the Skillet Street Food on a regular basis or check the website for updates:
Every Thursday and Friday: McGraw Square at 5th & Olive
Every Thursday: Downtown Bellevue at 106th & 6th
