5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The places you can discover here are even better to show of to visiting family.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: not many places immediate from campus, but with a drive there are some more options.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of different food places around campus that you can just walk to!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: SPU is next to Freemont, so there are plenty of options for eating out. The vegeterian and vegan resturants are all the rage around here, and pretty good, even if you are an omnivore.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Living right near downtown and all these other cities makes everything extremely easy to access and have. It would be nice to have cheaper options near campus, but it's also good that it is at a distance because it helps with maintaining a healthier diet. I'd rather be closer to a real dining area than a fast food chain.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Seattle Pacific isn't in a prime location for an easy bite when you step off campus; there are only a few choices within walking distance. If you're feeling ambitious and don't mind a longer jaunt, Fremont is within range. The best option would be to hop on a bus or drive a short distance to access infinite opportunities for great grub. Seattle has every genre of cuisine (including vegetarian options), but, by far, Seattle has the most variety in the category of Asian food. You will never be more than five minutes away from restaurants that serve pad Thai, Sushi, or pho. 

There are also many restaurants on the waterfront Downtown that serve excellent seafood, like Ivar's Salmon House or Cutter's, but these places tend to be a bit pricey, even if they are deserving. These spots may be better for when your parents come to visit and foot the bill. One of the great things about Seattle is that often atmosphere is considered just as important to a meal as the food. Some of the best advocates of that partnership include Mama's Mexican Kitchen Downtown, Mamma Melina's Italian restaurant in the University District, and the B & O Expresso in Capitol Hill.
