We’re enjoying Fleet Week in Seattle! It’s been fun seeing the sailors around town and watching the ships in the bay. The next few days you can tour some of the ships as part of the Boeing Maritime Celebration on Piers 66, 69 and 90. The Inn at the Market is just a short walk down to the water front. We’ve also been seeing the Blue Angels practicing up above preparing for their daily show this weekend for Seafair Weekend. Looking forward to all the water fun on Lake Washington that is part of this annual Seattle tradition.
Their slogan is “honest to goodness, kick-ass biscuits” and we kind of have to agree. This great new addition to the Pike Place Market, Honest Biscuits, features mouth-watering biscuit goodness straight up and gluten free. The menu offers butter/jam biscuits, sandwiches, two different kinds of gravy and grits! We recently tried “The MacGregor” which features bacon from Bavarian Meats, caramelized onions and Beecher’s Flagship Cheese. Many of the menu items feature local favorites from the Market. Honest Biscuits is located in the Atrium of the Economy Building (just upstairs across from the giant squid). We recommend giving them a try as soon as possible!
Honest Biscuits is open daily 8am-5pm
