7 Seas Brewery
A Matter of Taste (Leavenworth)
A Matter of Taste has every kind of mustard, honey, and salad dressing you could dream of. Stop here if you want to sample 1,000 delicious items, or buy everything online and have it shipped to you.
Stop during happy hour for queso frito and lamb skewers for half the price. Great place for a date night or weekend celebration.
Blue Mouse Theater
If you are in need of some special stocking stuffers for the holiday season, British Bites is the best place to stop by. They have a wide-variety of specialty treats--you can't say "no" to Turkish Delight--and a nice selection of treats to enjoy while you relax in the shop.
Best biscuits and gravy in North End Tacoma.
Corina Bakery is the best spot in Tacoma to stop for a slice of rhubarb pie and a latte. Gluten-free and vegan options too!
Fiesta Taqueria has been my go-to place for street tacos since they opened. The restaurant is small (previously an old Shell gas station) so it might take a decent amount of time to find a seat. But the salsa bar and bean dip are well worth the wait.
Frying Pan Vancouver
Best quick meal in Vancouver! Grab a chicken and rice bowl and take a walk around Stanley Park.
Vancouver is known to have some of the best ramen in general, but G-men is my go-to! Get their spicy ramen on a cold day, and it will keep you warm and happy.
Gateway to India
For those who love a good brunch, Gray Olive is the perfect week day spot. Grab the Kitchen Sink if you like a little bit of everything...eggs, veggies, green onions, sausage, bacon, cheese, AND potatoes included!
Heritage Asian Eatery
Indo Asian Street Eatery
The possibilities are truly "infinite" with a new menu of fresh soups available every day. One of my favorite spots to grab a hot lunch to enjoy in Wright Park.
Meet in Gastown
Whether you're vegan, or just looking to have a meal you won't feel guilty about, MeeT delivers! Every time I'm in Vancouver, I have to get their sweet chili cauliflower.
Pacific Island Grill
Paint & Sip
Shanghai River (Vancouver)
Spicy beef noodles in soup and soup dumplings. 'nough said.
Something Blue Bridal Boutique
Tacoma Buds & Blooms
The Secret Garden Tea Room
This Victorian tea shop hidden in Sumner is the perfect place for a mother's day celebration, or a relaxing weekend with your best friends. Stop by on a weekend and enjoy one of their tiered stands with savories and sweets, and make sure you skip breakfast so you save room for their unlimited scones with lemon curd!
Wigan Pier Restaurant
If you are a lover of beautiful scenery and fish n chips, this is your place! The fish in this fish n chips is the size of a small canoe, and richly flavored. Big portions of good food? Highly recommend!
Windmill Gardens & Nursery
The smoked salmon eggs benedict is to die for! Get it with the truffle lemon potatoes and hollandaise sauce.
Butcher Boys Beef Outlet
I discovered Sterino's several years back when they first opened during October. Every year, they have fantastic seasonal deals on pumpkins, making pumpkin carving even more affordable and fun. I stop by almost weekly to make sure I have a wide variety of fresh produce.
Some of the freshest vegetables in the Puyallup/Tacoma area. Check out their specials for fresh produce.
The Olive Shoppe and Ginger Grater
La Conner, WA
This was the first place in Tacoma that I started thrifting at because they have so many options to fit whatever style you're interested in. Great selection of sizes, awesome prices, and wonderful staff.
Valley Farms is a small hidden treasure located just off of River Road. Their prices for fresh veggies can't be best, and their team is incredible at making sure you take home the freshest ingredients.
A wide selection of every kind of plant you can think of. The Watson's team also hosts seasonal events, so take your family between Halloween and Christmas for fun free activities.
East Main Vision Clinic
I have been seeing Dr Day for over the past ten years, and I can't imagine going anywhere else. Dr. Day always makes sure that his patients are comfortable, walking through every step in your eye exam with care. I have never had better luck with an eye doctor.
Linden Golf and Country Club
Sexton Vision Group
Smith & Wetterhus Dentistry
I have been seeing Dan and Greg for over the past ten years and they have lessened my fears of dental appointments. Whether you are in need of a cleaning, or you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, they should be your go-to if you live in Puyallup.
Carpe Diem Massage
Old Town Bicycle
I decided to pick up mountain biking several months ago, and the team was incredible at walking me through the process of finding the right bike. When I couldn't find one that fit my needs, they quickly ordered the one I wanted and sized me to make sure it would be the right fit. Awesome team.
Puget Sound Fly Co
Outdoor Sports Store
Tranquility Day Spa, Wenatchee
East Wenatchee, WA
Awesome place to breakaway from stress in Wenatchee. Highly recommend the couples massage package.
Avatar Nails Spa
I have been going to get my hair done with Amanda at Bangs for the past two years, and she is fantastic at making sure I'm satisfied with my balayage and cut. If you're worried about the time and cost of maintaining your new 'do, the team will work with you to make sure it's the right fit for your budget and schedule.
Divine Nail Lounge
Divine Nails was recently remodeled, featuring a new chic interior and more chairs. This is my go to stop every month for a pedicure.
Puyallup Auto Tech
Brantley Janson Yost & Ellison
Anthem Coffee & Tea
Anthem opened in Puyallup quite a few years back, and has grown into a South Sound staple. This is a great spot to get work done with a black and white mocha.
Ashley's Room is always well-stocked with trendy pieces for each season. Brand-names at a discount? Count me in!
If I'm running late to work and NEED to stop for coffee, this place is my go-to. The baristas are fast, the coffee is to die for, and any bad morning can be fixed with pumpkin cheesecake bread.
Bluebeard Coffee Roasters
Truly the best coffee I have had in Tacoma. The indie vibe and excellent coffee makes this the best place in Tacoma to dial down and get work done.
Bubble tea fans in the South Sound--stop by Bubbles! Fully customizable bubble teas whether you like hot or iced, milk tea or black tea, fruity or sweet, or tapioca or bobas.
Incredible brown sugar milk tea. They even ask you to customize your drink by amount of sweetness and amount of ice. Get here early in the day to avoid the lines.
Jewel Box Cafe
MiSHA sells beautiful boho pieces prefect for every season. If you love over sized flannels, boyfriend jeans, and floral prints--this is your place! They are also very active on social media if you are interested in scouting out the latest additions to the shop without having to stop in.
Northern Fish Products
I've been buying all of my seafood from Northern Fish Company for the past year. Their fish is always fresh, and they offer weekly seasonal specials.
Trendy accessories and clothing pieces frequently changing to match the latest trends.
Tacoma Book Center
Used Book Store
Tacoma Rubber Stamp
A fun stop to explore rubber stamps if you are a passionate crafter, or just looking for a unique gift.
The Grand Cinema
The Grand Cinema is my favorite spot to watch independent and foreign films that you can't find anywhere else. On the third Saturday of every month, the Grand even welcomes guests to a movie for free! Pro tip: get the popcorn with real butter.
