An Instagrammer's Guide to Seattle

Planning a trip to Seattle this summer? Looking to hit up spots that are far, far away from the crowded and sweaty tourist areas? When traveling to new spots, we like to visit places with beautiful displays and products, unusual interiors, and incredible food. And of course, we love a place that we can Instagram. The Fresh Tangerine team gathered around the table to compile a list of our favorite, most instagrammable spots around Seattle. The spots we chose will take you around Pioneer Square, Downtown, Belltown, Ballard and Capitol Hill. Share your visit to Seattle with the hashtag #FTseattle

The London Plane (Pioneer Square)

Stop in during breakfast for some avocado toast and grab yourself a bouquet of flowers while you are at it! Mosy on towards the back and check out all of home goods, gourmet ingredients, and hand dipped candles. 


Fresh Tangerine (Pioneer Square)

Of course during your tour of Seattle you have to stop by the Fresh Tangerine showroom tucked upstairs in the historic 89 Yesler Way building. Come see exclusive pieces, try on stacking rings, and say hi to all of us!


Elm Coffee Roasters (Pioneer Square)

Grab an espresso over at Elm and basque in the incredible lighting inside this micro roaster. Check out our #ftfieldtrip to Elm Coffee Roasters


Pizzeria Gabbiano (Pioneer Square) 

This place has quickly become one of our favorite spots to eat lunch at. And why wouldn't it be? Pizza by the POUND. You don't have to commit to just one type of pizza- you can try little samples of every single one that teases your eyes. Don't forget to ask for the chili oil when you are checking out!


Ace Hotel (Belltown)

If you are planning your vacation to Seattle, you should consider staying in the heart of the city at the Ace Hotel. 


Moorea Seal (Belltown)

We're in LOVE with our stockist, Moorea Seal located about a mile away from our showroom. Moorea's store is perfectly curated and decorated- her store is a constant source of inspiration and she sells some of our favorite makers across the country. 


Seattle Central Library (Downtown) 

Seattle loves books. Our ten story library is a testament for this. Explore all of the levels and the incredible architecture that is revealed to you on each floor. 


The Fat Hen (Ballard)

This is Kim Kogane's (ft boss lady) favorite brunch spot in Ballard. Be ready to wait in a line!


Glasswing (Capitol Hill)

This gem is tucked away inside the Melrose Market up on Capitol Hill and has everything from air plants, botanical prints, and clothing to your local Fresh Tangerine jewels!


Oddfellows Cafe & Bar (Capitol Hill)

Head over here for happy hour drinks in the back where the patio is located and enjoy this little outdoor oasis in the heart of the hill. The rustic, americana interior gives Oddfellows the feel that it has been around for decades. 


Totokaelo (Capitol Hill)

The interior of the flagship Totokaelo store is like walking into an art gallery with masterpieces created by Commes de Garçon, Rachel Comey, and Issey Miyake. Enter the white doors and find yourself in a world of shoes on display. If you are feeling adventurous, head downstairs to the men's section to find an indoor plant room. 


Volunteer Park Conservatory (Capitol Hill)

Head north on Capitol Hill towards on of our tucked away treasures, the Volunteer Park Conservatory. The Cactus room is a desert oasis that you have to see for yourself. 


Tallulah's (Capitol Hill) 

This mid-century- California inspired neighborhood spot has a rotating seasonal menu and plenty of patio space. 


Kerry Park (Queen Anne) 

End your Seattle visit with an iconic view of Seattle from the top of the Queen Anne Hill. If you time it out right, you can make it up for the sunset and watch the night lights turn on across the downtown.
