Around Fremont at lunch time? Agrodolce is a nice and cozy place full of light. I like to sit by the large window, on a bench lined with pillows. Sandwiches and salads are fresh, crispy and tasty. I need to go back to try the pasta as I have heard they are really good.
I love Seattle’s many murals. Some consider them graffiti, while others see them as another form of art. They also can be ads. Often painted directly on a wall, the murals incorporate bricks, stones, metal or architectural elements in their designs.
Downtown, a beautiful orca.
On the side of Fremont Studio: Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
In Fremont, a still life coffee house.

Freshly arrived from France, Alex and Laure decided to start a French bakery in Magnolia Village. Named after their son, Petit Pierre Bakery has been open for less than 2 months.
Laure’s specialities are petits choux, huge madeleines, macarons and all traditional French pastries. My favorite so far? Pistachio madeleines, chocolate petits choux, and the lemon tarts…
The other day, I stopped by after a walk in Discovery Park for lunch. I bought a combo; a soup with a quiche or a sandwich. The made from scratch lentil and carrots soup was delicious.
If you live in Magnolia’s neighborhood or go to Discovery Park, stop by! They are so friendly and hardworking and their bakery smells like France !
— Petit Pierre Bakery, 3204 W. McGraw St.
Closed on Mondays. Open on Sundays from 8am to 1pm.
