Caffeine, Food, and Alcohol

Downtown Seattle

Our very own restaurant, Taste, is more than capable of satisfying your coffee, lunch and happy hour needs. If you suspect you will be lunching there, stop by or call to make a reservation or choose a sandwich from the grab and go station. Seattle Art Museum:
TASTE Restaurant at SAM Downtown

Beyond our walls, downtown Seattle has an abundance of places to eat, drink and get caffeinated. The Public Market is one block from the museum, there is an abundance of food truck fare near the museum and, in case you really can't choose, here are some further suggestions:
