Pub
$$
“Lower Fremont: 21+ Hip pub that feels like you are entering an exclusive, dark, "members-only" club. They offer Belgian-style grub, hundreds of beers & over 50 scotches. Open 11am- late. Their Belgian-inspired cuisine includes versions of Belgian classics such as pommes frites (true Belgian fried potatoes), stoofvlees (a thick Belgian stew served on Frites), and the Belgian staple of moules-frites. They also serve a variety of sandwiches, such as our very popular lamb burger, which is ground in house. They also have a selection of salads, desserts, and a rotating specials menu. A great place to catch up with friends!”

Pizza Place
$$
“The "Frelard" area is just down the hill to the West on the Fremont/Ballard boarder: 15 min walk. Industrial-chic pizzeria from famous chef, Ethan Stowell, serves up handmade pies, whole or by the slice for a quick snack! Big, sports-bar, family-friendly environment with wonderful outdoor space to enjoy in the summer.”

Diner
$
“Roxy's is "East Coast on the West Coast". It's meant to mimic a New York Diner (the owner is a long-time New Yorker). They serve traditional breakfast items (Try their E.O.B...Egg On a Bagel!) as well as other less traditional items like corned beef and pastrami sandwiches. Prices are not too bad either. Definitely stop here if you want some good traditional breakfast.”
