Fairmont Olympic

We will be in Seattle for 1 night in May, staying at the Fairmont. Could anyone recommend a good breakfast, lunch and dinner places near the hotel? Dinner could be on the more expensive side.
I have a wheat intolerance. Are there any gluten free bakeries?

thanks :)

  1. unfortunately no gluten-free bakeries downtown though the Fairmont is very accommodating with special dietary needs so keep that in mind. They have a wonderful restaurant.

    A bit of a walk but still downtown, Andaluca has a gluten-free menu and wonderful food.

    Anthony's has a gluten-free menu too.

    1. Try 'Shucker's' seafood restaurant right there in the hotel.

      1. re: grangie angie

        Belle Epicurian is also on the same block as the Fairmont.
        I don't know what they do "gluten free" but the pastries and sandwiches are delicious.

      2. If you don't mind a short walk or shorter drive- go down to Pike Place and across the street is Tom Douglas' Etta. And the original Starbucks. Etta weekend brunch is fabulous . Recommend the Corn beef hash.

        1. Flying Apron is a very nice gluten-free bakery and cafe. It's a fair distance from your hotel in the Fremont neighborhood... it depends how important GF is to you.
          You can get there via the #5 bus along 3rd Ave, or if you have a car, you can park on the street.
          I like the soups and salads, as well as the baked goods. Large selection and always fresh.
          Across from Flying Apron is the PIE shop. They usually have one flavor of pie with a GF crust. The crust is good, but too much crust and not enough filling.

          1. Lola for breakfast. Shuckers has very standard business lunch fare. WIld Ginger gets plenty of mixed/bad reviews but it's pan-Asian is a decent lunch and maybe GF choices (I don't know). Dinner--Restaurant Zoe. Small plates at Bisato. Tavolata for pasta. All three are longish walks, or short cab ride, or bus in the free zone.
