Dare I say it? I think it's the best pho in a city that's known for pho. Cash only. (Don't go for the ambiance.)

It's only open for weekday lunch, and the line can be long (we've waited an hour), but I have never been disappointed by the fresh pasta here. There are only three dishes a day, and they are always fantastic.

Taps change by season but my favorite is the Rye Stout. No food, so bring your own.

Sightseeing

I call this the "Secret" garden in Pike Place. It's a lovely outdoor space with a view of the Sound. To get there: Enter the Market from the corner of Pike St and Pike Place. Head left past Pike Place Fish towards Maximilien restaurant. There is a hallway on the left that leads to the rooftop through the grey double doors.

Essentials

Perfect for picking up snacks and groceries. The hot bar and salad bar are both quite good. I like the potato salad from the deli.

Getting Around

The Link light rail is the easiest way to get to/from downtown and the airport. A one-way ride is between $2.25 and $3.00 depending on how far you go. If you plan on taking multiple rides, buy a day pass for $5.00.
