Just started a new job on Capitol Hill and I'm looking for some tasty lunch options when I have time to venture outside of the office. Criteria is tasty, under $15 (less is better), quick service, and an easy walk from E Pine and Melrose. I'm open to almost all types of food.

Based on my brief searching, Baguette Box sounds likes a must try. Any other places?

  1. Yes, definitely go to Baguette Box. I would throw out Pho Cyclo on Broadway too - http://www.phocyclocafe.com/

      Yes. Yes. I agree with both. Also don't miss Joe Bar, if you're interested in a nice stroll-- I'd walk Boylston, it's the prettiest. Crepes and paninis and soup. And coffee and wine and beer. It's lovely. At Harvard and Roy. Far far north end of Broadway.

      Via Tribunali, on Pike, is a good stop for pizza.

        Via Trib is excellent, but (unfortunately!) not open for lunch.

          Thanks! I haven't been in for lunch-- obviously. I was just assuming. Sorry!

          1. re: sophie.

            I dream of the day that they open for lunch! Then I could eat the primavera twice in one day.... Yum!

    2. Honeyhole on Pike, 2-3 blocks west of Broadway. Really, really yummy sandwiches. I always get the veggie BLT and El Guapo, but all of the sandwiches my friends have tried have been really good.

        Crave on 12th and Pike or Pine. Great eats!!!

      2. I would add to this list: Bimbo's Bitchin' Burrito Kitchen (Pine between Summit and Belmont) and In the Bowl (vegetarian by Denny and Olive). Here's a Stranger review of In the Bowl: http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Co.... Both are close to your work.

          Bimbo's is not long for this Earth, according to the PI. That whole bitchin' block (including the Cha-Cha and the Bus Stop) is being plowed under for yet another cookie-cutter condo development. Go soon.

          1. re: terrier

            The Cha Cha, and hopefully Bimbo's, will be resurrected on 11th and Pike (in the space currently occupied by Des Amis). I am hopeful but not optimistic that both places will retain their gritty feel. The prognosis for the other businesses on that block -- the Bus Stop, Kincora's, and Man Ray, among others, is not so promising.

        2. On a sunny day, it's nice to sit out on the patio behind Linda's. Food is classic diner fare.

          1. Hot Mama's is great for a cheap and tasty slice of pizza.
