Ballard’s streets are home to cozy cafes, antique shops, local art galleries, bustling bars, beloved bakeries, and one of the best year-round farmers markets each Sunday, not to mention over a dozen breweries hosting many of Seattle’s hottest pop-ups. A pedestrian zone on Ballard Avenue offers some of the best outdoor dining in the city, but there are excellent restaurants throughout the neighborhood (and in the adjacent Sunset Hill area), with options ranging from Filipino Dungeness crab and chicken kathi rolls to Detroit-style pizza and upscale tasting menus with local meat and seafood.
