The Original Starbucks

The Original Starbucks

 The Mothership of coffee. Right at Pike Place Market, the Original Starbucks is defiantly a must-see in Seattle. Yes, it’s totally “touristy” and yes, if you go at the wrong time you’ll end up waiting in line for ages, BUT I thought it was really neat seeing where it all began. 

On our second day in Seattle, we woke up early and headed towards Pike Place Market again to grab coffee and breakfast. I noted the day before when passing the Original Starbucks that the line was insane, but at 8:30am on a Saturday in December, it was mostly empty. Score! We both grabbed a cup of their classic Pike Place blend (really good – I highly recommend!) and took in the history before heading inside the market.

If you’re visiting Seattle, make sure to hit up Pike Place Market and Starbucks in the morning – it was way less crowded at this time of day. We grabbed lox on bagels for breakfast and walked around the market, taking in the day without anyone bothering us. Lovely! 

I knew we’d be spending most of this day outside walking around, so I wore this ultra comfy sweater from Style Nut Boutique.  The collar is amazing – it folds to be an “over the shoulder” sweater or you can let it hang a bit in the front to act as a scarf. It wore it both ways that day depending how cold I was! I topped the look off with Margaret Elizabeth jewelry, comfy  leggings from Boohoo and my high-knee boots from Target. Perfect outfit to go exploring Seattle in. 



After fueling up, we headed to Gas Works Park in the Fremont district to see a great view of the Seattle Skyline and cute house boats!  Remember the scene in 10 Things I Hate About You when they ditch school to go paddle boating and play paintball? This is the park they do that in! Yeah, I had a fan girl moment. Robin of course didn’t know what I was talking about. Boys….
