Beer. Coffee. Bikes. Peleton Cafe is a bicycle shop taking a spin on what it means to get a “spring tune up.” This Navy-blue building with a yellow door serves breakfast until 4 p.m. and gets an adventurer out the door to enjoy all the vibrant greenery that makes Seattle. To the left is the bike shop part of the business, and to the right is the counter to order. Really neat concept to think about… killing two birds with one stone for someone needing breakfast and a bicycle for the day. It’s also fun while eating at Peleton Cafe, because either a pastry or breakfast burrito watching a bicycle be repaired is mind soothing. Not a whole lot of spots to sit at inside… maybe grab the inexpensive meal to-go and hit the bike trails and come back later for a brew. Peleton Cafe is very close to Seattle University on East Cherry Street.
Popular among the Seattle University students — on campus, back end of the campus store building — is Cafe Presse, a spot known for people craving morning and midnight meals. Open until 1 a.m., the ‘Presse’ on Capitol Hill offers a steady changing menu bringing a taste of Paris to everyone’s taste buds. If lost, look for the yellow sign with a red leaf. Walk in and notice the various magazines to buy, because a croque-monsieur is best with fresh content. Venture on to sit either at a fully stocked bar with modern, yet old-school elegant seating or slide into a pea green table with wooden seats. Cafe Presse is known for playing big soccer games, so anyone in town looking to watch the hometown team or a popular French squad take the pitch: grab a bite to eat here!

Everything you love is inside. That’s the motto an adventurer can await while pulling up to the Fat Hen. In the Whittier Heights neighborhood, this restaurant allows natural light to flow all throughout. High-top window seating to enjoy the sun while enjoying an alla boscaiola or pancetta. Can’t miss this brick by brick shop with a red entrance off NW 70th Street. Seating is a little lower to the ground, but the small restaurant can seat an adventurer next to a gorgeous white wine shelf. It’s mixed with tastes from all over, a touch of Seattle’s environment, and of course the kids' menu. The Fat Hen is a quality spot to grab a bite, but don’t skip over the pastries and cookies at the front counter. Save some room or bring home dessert for later to indulge in deliciousness.

Walk across the rainbow crosswalk on East Pike Street and grab a seat at Cafe Pettirosso. With small tables on the sidewalk, an espresso here to start the morning can set the day in motion. Walk inside the black and gold building to see a much different ambience and vibes than expected. Wooden tables with flowers wrapped inside a white, brick building and lights that illuminate the entire place. Cafe Pettirosso has a quick grab and go feel, but there’s plenty of seating to enjoy a nice meal; however, this cafe also has a unique bar to sit at and enjoy a quality drink. No matter if it’s French toast or pettirosso basic, the pastry case is going to be tempting. Sit back in the cozy atmosphere and enjoy. Added plus, there are vegan options.
