December 1st,
Around Pioneer Square

On Instagram, I often hashtag #Seattleasalocal but it is sometimes fun to play the role of a tourist in your own city. 

By tourism, I mean wandering in a neighborhood with no map or agenda.

Here is what I liked around Pioneer Square last week.

On Occidental Park, you can see the inside of a shipping container decorated with painting and lighting. It features Seattle in the 20’s and the exterior features the Pacific Northwest forest.
“History, Contained”: 8:30 a.m.–6:30 p.m. every day till the end of December.

It was windy and cold at lunch time, we stopped at Grand Central Bakery for warm comforting soups and tasty sandwiches.

Ventoux Roasters

On this sunny Fall day, I discovered a place that I have to share with you:

A little neighborhood coffee place between Ravenna and University District. Delicious cappuccino in a laid back atmosphere, and cycling decor. Just in case you don’t know: Mont Ventoux is an iconic stage in the Tour de France.
Ventoux Roaster 3404 NE 55th st, 98105 Seattle
6am – 6pm Monday through Friday
