All Seasons Cleaners
Laundry
Friendly dry cleaners with a great turnaround time.
Capitol Hill Tool Library
Hardware Supply
Don't have a tool, come on over. Check out their digital tool library to see what they have and its availability before popping on over. The volunteers are also great if you need someone to run through how best to tackle a project.
Daniel Smith Fine Art Materials
Framing
In addition to being the most well-stocked art store around, you can get beautifully-done custom picture framing at Daniel Smith. Fantastic customer support too!
Frank Lumber the Door Store
Doors
I love that I can take my old doors to these guys so they can measure them up (no mistakes!) and then dispose of them. It make replacing your doors that much easier.
Hardwick and Sons Hardware
Hardware Store
If you're looking for that ever-so-unique finish (e.g. special door knob) you have got to check these guys out.
Molkbak's Home + Garden
Nursery
They have an INCREDIBLE assortment of plants and other items to make your home and garden beautiful. They might just have the best outdoor planter options around.
Oxford Laundry
Laundry
Boston
Really convenient hours and they don't make you buy those pre-loaded cards to use the machines.
Perkins Glass & Mirror Co
Glass
Don't let this small, nondescript storefront fool you. In addition to doing major commercial orders these guys can do one-off special orders. There's even a small little parking area right upfront so you don't have to worry about Capital Hill parking.
Quality Windows & Screens
Glass
I had a great experience working with Gordon. When I just bought my condo there were some "extra special" mirrors all around the place. He was able to assess the situation and very delicately remove the mirrors while not destroying the flimsy particle wood behind them. He even tidied up afterwards!
Roto-Rooter
Plumber
Love that they have a published price list. You know the price of everything upfront before doing any work.
Seattle's Doorhouse
Doors
I had a challenging door replacement situation that other door stores in the area couldn't figure out. I walked into Seattle's Doorhouse, chatted through what I was hoping to do, and they had a fabulous solution! Just a few days later I was happily bringing my new doors home.
Swansons Nursery
Nursery
Fantastic professionals. I've come here with sad little plant leaves trying to diagnose what the heck is going on with my plants. The team is super helpful at figuring out the problem and giving me reasonable solutions. Don't forget their #askswanson Twitter hashtag so you can ask questions via Twitter.
Wave
Internet Provider
I miss the days of having Wave Broadband. They were the best service provider I've had in Seattle with the best customer service.

Wellness

Boxsmith
Gym
Boston
Phenomenal group and personal boxing training. Jess LOVES teaching and will get your butt kicked into boxing shape in no time.
Dreamclinic Massage Queen Anne

Great range of massage therapists. One word of caution is parking. You'll likely have to drive around a bit, or end up in one of the nearby supermarket parking lots.

Don't miss Ori's kickboxing classes. Really fun and he'll take the time to really improve your technique.

These guys are open late...which is really convenient when you want to pick up your shoes after work.

I try to look away when I pass their storefront...and yet I always seem to end up walking inside and getting something. Usually a macaron, which they have in some of the most creative flavors around.

An eclectic blend of art, big and small. They'll let you take a piece home (with a refundable deposit, of course) to see if you like how it fits.

I love Macrina for special birthdays for the big kids in all of us. They have a changing seasonal menu you can choose from, and sizes that accomodate parties big and small.
