    The Shelter Lounge in Ballard specializes in deliciousness. Try their highly addictive PB&J Jalapeno Poppers, the Spicey Grilled Cheese, & their Avocado Fries - those are to die for.

    The girl bartender there is super helpful on suggestions for food AND drinks, but I suggest to try the HH Ahi Crisps and some strawberry/cucumber daiquiri.

    Perfect spot for a cold, gloomy day. Listen to the rain pitter-patter on the roof while you toast marshmallows over the fire pit.

    The long, rectangular fire pit on the enclosed patio means larger groups can stay warm while downing cold drinks

    Rain or shine, cold or warm, a great place to go due to cover/heaters outside.

    Don't get the portabello mushroom sandwhich unless you can digest a big chunk of random plastic AND don't expect anything when bringing attention to your waitress, except... Oops, sorry.
