Eat * Drink * Play – Edmonds
Edmonds, a quiet town on the Puget Sound just a little north of the Seattle city limits. Known for having really good schools, a top notch Saturdays farmer market, and for being home to one side of the Kingston – Edmonds Ferry. It’s community feel is very strong and can be seen all summer long at the many festivals it holds such as the Taste of Edmonds and its yearly Fourth of July holiday fireworks show.
Chantrelle 316 Main Street, Edmonds, WA 98020This is my absolute favorite breakfast place in the Seattle area. They serve lunch and dinner and have a large baked goods section and make a large coffee beverage selection. It’s location is right in the middle of downtown Edmonds, allowing for you to check out the downtown shops after you eat or take a short walk down to the ferry and beach areas.My favorite part of their breakfast is the perfectly cooked bacon; crisp and thick, which is the way I like it. It’s not the biggest place to eat, so go there early because the weekends pretty much always have a line.
A Very Taki Tiki Bar & Grill 518 Main St, Edmonds, WA 98020When was the last time you went to a tiki bar? Mostly likely, the answer is too long. It’s a very casual place to drink and it has all the fun tropical drinks you’d imagine if you were on a tropical resort. But you’re not. You’re in Edmonds. You aren’t coming here for a unique drink collection or house brewed beer, the special part about this bar is the atmosphere. It’s just a lot of fun ad you should check it out.It is a bar, but they do serve and have a closed off section that allows for underage people to come in. That really helps with family friendly nature of the community.
Edmond’s Driftwood Players 950 Main St, Edmonds, WA 98020One of the longest running community theatre’s in the Seattle Metro area is located in Edmonds.
