Sixty miles southwest of Seattle at the southern end of Puget Sound is Olympia, Washington state's capital city. A fine arts hub, the city is equally well-known for its eclectic shopping and dining scene. Complement regional faves like fish-and-chips, all things meat and potatoes, and sandwiches and barbecued burgers topped with Walla Walla sweet onions (the state veggie) with sustainably sourced baked goods, homemade tamales, and crepes filled with chocolate hazelnut sauce and poached pears. Looking for hearty yet affordable eats coupled with platefuls of calorie-rich (but oh so good!) sides? In the mood for romantic European cuisine paired with award-winning wines? Prefer gluten-free alternatives? It's all here. And while Seattle gets all the coffee buzz, Olympia has a robust coffee culture that includes one-of-a-kind java blends.
