Breakfast, lunch or dinner, we all get those little cravings for something classic and new all at the same time. These local Seattle shops will satisfy your familiar taste buds with a special kick to the traditional bacon-lettuce-tomato combo. There’s lots of debate as to what makes the perfect BLT, but whether it’s in-house smoked bacon or the simple delight of choosing your own breads, one thing is for sure: Seattle is not short on its BLT supply.

Marianne Hale from Seattle Magazine pulls out all the stops for the places to go.

DOT’S DELICATESSEN
Dot’s bacon is dry-rubbed and smoked in house, then laid on sourdough slices from Macrina Bakery with heirloom tomatoes (when in season), mixed baby head lettuce and fresh house-made aioli. $7. Fremont, 4262 Fremont Ave. N; 206.687.7446; dotsdelicatessen.com

THE SWINERY
Perhaps the Swinery’s entry should be called the PBLT, because the chefs use thick, crispy slices of pork belly accompanied by chicken liver pâté mayo, mixed greens and tomato, all snuggled into a Macrina brioche. $8. West Seattle, 3207 California Ave. SW; 206.932.4211; swinerymeats.com
