    One of the best views in town and a great patio for those sunny days Seattle is famous for. Highly recommended and worth the trip. Catch the water taxi from downtown for a nice little adventure.

    Imagine if White Castle had tacos. And kimchi. And SPAM. And you didn't feel guilty the next day. So...nothing like White Castle. But better!

    They're the nicest people ever and the food is awesome. Having them at Starbucks HQ one day a week wasn't enough... Had to come to the non-mobile location. Try the quesadilla!
