When it comes to healthy cities, Seattle tops the list (It’s true; the Google said so!). We’re super green and we eat lean. Hey, even our kids love kale chips as a snack. But sometimes, you just need to indulge your taste buds. So, go bike the Burke or SUP the morning away on Alki, then take the fam (and your appetite) for a tour of some delightfully delish food fads that are truly drool-worthy. But maybe not so skinny jean friendly. Nosh on!

Savory Waffles

Waffles drenched in syrup have seen their day. It’s time to indulge in true Liège style waffles at Sweet Iron Waffles downtown. These delectable eats are made from dough, not batter, so they make a denser, breadier waffle that stands up to Sweet Iron’s innovative toppings like prosciutto, crème fraiche & green onions or bruleed bananas with caramel & whipped cream. Grab the kids and grab a few of these tasty treats for breakfast or lunch. We think the kiddos will give the thumbs up to the classic with powdered sugar, while the herbed goat cheese, hazelnut & honey will appeal to parents. They’re not just for breakfast anymore!

Find it: Taste these Belgium treats at their restaurant downtown.
