Minimoon to the PNW

Yes, we’ve been married for almost three years now so this post is a little late to the game but it’s been in the drafts and is still a must share! We had such a great time exploring the Pacific North West that we had to throw together a little guide for you all. Thankful for friends who show us the ropes in their cities!!

First on our Seattle list was a stop at The London Plane. It was equal parts beautiful and delicious and Megan could have purchased everything in the store. Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 001 Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 002 Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 003Views from atop

Beechers has THE most incredible mac n cheese and if you don’t eat anything else, you should definitely make your way there.

We didn’t even brave (or care) to go inside. I mean, just look at that crowd! Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 017After getting out of the crazy that is Pike Market we ventured to another side of town and made our way to Milstead Coffee.Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 018 Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 019 Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 020 Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 021We made our way to Gas Works Park with our friends Hun and Grace. It’s such an interesting park but it has the greatest views of the city!

If you’re into seafood it’s a must. Right on the water and so so so good!Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 035Another really fun spot we stopped at. Love that view!

The next day we hopped on the ferry and headed to Bainbridge. It’s a cute little town across the water. We walked through shops, stopped for ice cream and then totally missed the ferry and had to wait for the next one. whoops!

Some of my favorite things are in this photos, warm olives, BREAD, and that gold ring. After this we found a theater and enjoyed a movie!Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 061 Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 062On our last day in the city we stopped at Oddfellows for brunch. That eggs Benedict though, oh man. Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 063 Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 064When in Seattle, you go to the Starbucks Reserve Roastery. It was hands down the coolest Starbucks and really gorgeous too! Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 065 Mini Moon to Seattle - Bravwel 066

Next on the trip, Portland! We rented a car and drove down to Oregon the following day. It was a really nice drive and we ended it at the Ace Hotel.

We stopped in for drinks the first night and made sure to make our way back each day.  Mini Moon to Portland - Bravwel 015Blue Star Donuts was a must in the mornings. We, personally, didn’t care to do VooDoo. Are we the only ones!? Blue Star is amazing and we definitely recommend it!!  Mini Moon to Portland - Bravwel 016 Mini Moon to Portland - Bravwel 017 Mini Moon to Portland - Bravwel 018Our absolute favorite meal in Portland was at Tasty n Sons.
