The Woodlands: More Pizza and Pub Options in North Seattle

The Woodlands - formerly The Boardroom Cafe - opened a few weeks ago in our neighborhood, specifically on east side of Aurora between 83rd and 84th streets (it’s still knows as The Boardroom Cafe to Google): We went to the Boardroom for coffee and breakfast sandwiches a few times. It was always good, but crossing Aurora was enough of a barrier that we’d head to Neptune on Greenwood instead. A huge Starbucks opened directly across the street from Boardroom last year, so the pivot to pizza and beer was a good idea. »

Delancey is Good

Delancey is better than good. It’s been consistently delicious every time we’ve been (maybe 10 times, the first time about 5 years ago, I think). We haven’t been since Elli was pregnant, and we weren’t sure if it was baby friendly, but we gave it a shot on Friday night. Babies are welcome, and they even have high chairs. June loved it: They open at 5, and people start lining up a few minutes before. »
