Discover U District / U Village

With the University of Washington's main campus in the heart of Seattle's U District, it is no surprise that there is a young, hip vibe to the entire neighborhood. On The Ave in the U District, eateries where you can decorate your pancakes and waffles at a toppings bar or enjoy tom yum to go often draw some of the largest crowds. The U Village is an outdoor mall east of U District that boasts a combination of funky, unique eateries and national chain restaurants. Specialty shops provide wood-fired pizzas, ginger beers, frozen yogurt topping bars, and delicate chocolates.
