3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many places can be expensive, especially in the downtown area, but there is a huge variety.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since we are located right on Capitol Hill, there is a wide array of options. However, they tend to be expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great variety of restaurants and bars that are opened late. There are few student discountsThe coffee shop scene could be better

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: For those who have the time and money to spend on off campus food there are plenty of good options. I myself just choose not to spend my money on these.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: What makes off campus so wonderful is the close proximity of Broadway. Broadway has a variety of food choices and coffee shops. It also has many independent food joints. Also, many of the downtown eateries are easily accessible because SU is downtown.

There is a bevy of options only a few blocks away from campus, all of which vary in terms of quality, cuisine, atmosphere, and price. If you enjoy Asian food, you will do especially well, as it sometimes seems as if every third restaurant serves up Korean, Vietnamese, or Thai food. And the non-Asian options are just as varied. In one block on Broadway, you might find a Mexican restaurant, a Russian restaurant, and a more traditional American one as well. Teriyaki joints are especially common and very popular with Seattle University students as they tend to offer large portions for a pretty cheap price, sometimes enough that you can save the rest for a light dinner. Dinner is an especially popular time to eat out, given how early most places on campus close on most days. Unfortunately there are few true 24-hour options within easy walking distance, but there is an IHOP right across the street from campus, and it is always a popular place to head for a late-night study session.

Of course, it certainly isn’t cheap to eat out, and most students only go once a week, maybe twice, and even then many still tend towards some of the cheaper eateries. Given the sheer volume of offerings and the cramped nature of schedules, you probably won’t be able to try them all, even in all four years at school. But you cannot really understand Seattle University if you only eat the food the university itself makes, and you must budget your time and money to include visits to off-campus establishments. Whether you’re looking for a hole-in-the-wall dive or a four star establishment, you can find all of them in Seattle and many of them within walking distance of Seattle U.

Did You Know?
  • Every summer Seattle celebrates all things food in the Bite of Seattle, in which local restaurant owners and chefs provide free samples, full meals, and information on how to become a better chef yourself. And though not exclusively dedicated to food, the Bumbershoot festival, which runs on Labor Day Weekend, regularly features a bevy of offerings from Seattle eateries.
  • Possibly the best place in the city to shop for groceries is the Pike Place Market. Though a bit pricey, the Market features succulent vegetables, delicious fruits, meat and seafood of all sorts, and fresh baked bread. And since every SU dorm has at least one kitchen, it's no challenge for students to head down to pick up their favorite items to bring back and cook for their friends.
  • The planet's largest coffee chain, Starbucks, got its original start in Seattle's own Pike Place Market back in 1971.
