Uwajimaya (Seattle 2016) – Road Trip

Summertime means it’s road trip time! This year, we decided to head down to Portland but we knew we wanted to stop off in Seattle for some food and a break from the long drive.

There’s lots of options for eats when you head down to Granville Island. Until this point, I’ve steered clear of Cats Socialhouse… mainly because the name evokes a hipster-ish place to me and I’m far from being a social person.

La Petite Cuillere – Afternoon Tea

It’s been too long since we’ve had Afternoon Tea. I’m not sure what I enjoy more… trying the different types of teas or the selection of tiny pastries and sandwiches. La Petite Cuillere is the location of our latest foray and is located on Kingsway, near French Made Baking (I wonder if they get their macarons from FMB?)
