Nicknamed the “center of the universe,” Fremont has long been the crunchiest of Seattle’s crunchy neighborhoods. It’s famous for the often defaced, sometimes controversial statue of Lenin and the annual Solstice Parade, which brings together furries, pagans, naturists, Flying Spaghetti Monster worshippers, and a dozen other subcultures.
Unsurprisingly, the Fremont dining scene is hard to characterize. There’s an elite-tier Vietnamese coffee shop up the street from one of the city’s most hallowed bakeries up the street from a brunchy vegetarian all-day hangout spot. (The street in question, Stone Way, hosts an incredible array of restaurants.) Elsewhere in Fremont there’s a French bistro, a place for handmade soba noodles, and did we mention the diner with the disco balls? Sounds like a perfect place to unwind after a naked bike ride.
