We think C.S. Lewis had it right when he said that eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably. Test the theory yourself here at downtown Seattle’s Bookstore Bar & Café, a delight for bibliophiles and foodies alike. Among the brick walls and shelves lined with books and bottles, you’ll find contemporary cuisine and one of the largest selections of scotch and whiskey around — everything you need to eat, drink, read and be merry.

Scotch & Whiskey

Just how serious are we about scotch and whiskey? One hundred and thirty-plus varieties serious. Make trips to Scotland to visit the distilleries serious. Mark Twain serious. He said: “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” If you’re just as serious, welcome — there’s a lot of tasting to do. But if you’re not, that’s what beverage director Jamie Buckman and her team love most of all. They’ll make a whisk(e)y drinker out of you yet — or at least give you a history and geography lesson that’s way more fun than anything you learned in a classroom.

Meet Our Chef

CHEF CAPRIAL PENCE


The very first winner of the James Beard Award for Best Chef Northwest, Caprial Pence snagged the coveted honor while dishing up nouvelle cuisine at Fuller's Seattle. Then she left our fair city for the bike-riding, beer-swilling pastures of Portland. As much as we love our little sibling to the south, we’re so glad that after a couple of decades away, Chef Pence is back — and ready to treat you to food that’s like one of our stately old tomes on the shelf: beautiful on the outside, even more rewarding on the inside.
