Queen Anne

Worlds collide in the Queen Anne neighborhood, where the lively urban center of Lower Queen Anne meets Upper Queen Anne’s historic houses, boutiques, and spectacular views.


Any foodie can find a fix among Queen Anne’s diverse eateries. Toulouse Petit features an award-winning menu of Cajun Creole cuisine. How to Cook a Wolf deserves a place on any food-lover’s list, with rustic, Italian fare like gnocchi with mussels and grilled squid. For an intimate meal, head to Crow, a restaurant dishing up hearty food with Pacific Northwest flair—think prawn ceviche using local Yakima tomatoes or a saucy slab of baby back ribs.

Families should stroll through Once Upon a Time, where children’s clothing, toys, and books wait to be discovered. Peek into Stuhlbergs to track down whimsical souvenirs and home accessories. Meanwhile, Blue Highway Games highlights board and card games for all ages.


Culture takes center stage in Queen Anne, where you can find the all-encompassing Seattle Center. Here, visitors can enjoy interactive exhibits at Pacific Science Center and Museum of Pop Culture. Then score unparalleled views atop the Space Needle or at nearby Kerry Park to see a panorama of the entire city and—on clear days—a glimpse of Mount Rainier. For patrons of the arts, Pacific Northwest Ballet stages more than 100 performances annually, while Seattle Opera has prepared such shows as Mozart’s The Magic Flute for its 2017 season.
