Well, lucky for you, Imbibe Magazine has put together a list of some of the best coffee shops in and around Seattle, that should be the perfect cure for the grey skies blues! Redmond itself has a good collection of fantastic coffee shops, with Mercury's Coffee just up the road from Reflections, and Victors only about 5 mins away as well! You can find their complete list here: http://imbibemagazine.com/Best-Coffee-Shops-in-Seattle and we'd love to hear about which shops are your favorites, and why! There is nothing better than discovering a great, new coffee place for the first time, and with all of the options here in the Coffee Capital of the US, your new favorite coffee hang-out could be just around the corner!

Fete a Special Occasion at These Fine Dining Restaurants in Seattle

October 16, 2014 5:02 pm

There are few things more enjoyable than spending an evening around a delicious meal with the people you’re closest with, and Seattle offers numerous upscale restaurants where you can do just that. Here are just a few of the top fine dining restaurants in the Emerald City.

Crush’s menu includes dishes made with only ingredients that are native to the Pacific Northwest region in order to create culinary experience that is distinctly Seattle. This modern American restaurant employs the French cooking techniques in all of its seafood, beef, and pasta dishes, and it offers beautifully artistic desserts that you have to see to believe.
2319 E. Madison St., Seattle, WA 98112; (206) 324-4549

Located in a chic luxury lodge setting complete with a stone exterior, roaring fireplaces, and wall-to-wall windows overlooking the Seattle scenery, Canlis is just as much a visual experience as it is a culinary one. Each dish is artistically plated and features local meats, forest mushrooms, and fine herbs. The cuisine is described as “contemporary Northwest,” and though every dish is innovative, the chefs always aim to celebrate ingredients that are native to Seattle. Canlis also boasts an impressive list of wine and spirits, as well as house-brewed coffees and espresso drinks from socially responsible sources around the world.
