3 Hottest New Restaurants in Pike Place Market

Here at Savor Seattle Food Tours, we’re always happy to see new food vendors join the Pike Place Market Family. It’s more than just another restaurant or another vendor, it’s about the uniqueness each of these vendors brings that adds to the history and culture of the longest continuously-run public farmer’s market in America.

We’d like to introduce 3 of our favorite Market Freshman who opened up this year in the Pike Place Market.


First, we’d like to introduce Shug’s. Owned by Seattle natives and life partners, Paul Dormann and Colleen Wilkie, Shug’s brings back the old fashioned soda fountain culture to a new generation. Using Lopez Island Ice Creamery, Shug’s also features house-made syrups, sauces, beer and Ice Cream Cocktails. Yummy! When you walk into Shug’s, you’ll feel the family vibe from the get-go. Located at 1525 1st Avenue at Pike Place Market, enjoy a special time with your family or special someone.

Dip your spoon in the Prosecco Float (prosecco, peach sorbet, Toschi Amarena cherry, and raspberry liqueur from SIDETRACK Distillery).

Right next door to Shug’s is another one of our favorites, Old Stove Brewing Co. A new brewery co-founded by Chris Moore and Brian Stan, the old nickel plated stove that sits at the corner of the space is as old as Pike Place Market itself.  And just like Pike Place Market is about family so is Chris Moore’s memories of chopping wood and stoking the family Kalamazoo stove to keep the house warm during the Michigan wintery nights. Old Stove Brewing Co. is about the craft of beer making and local flavor. Good eats and 16 taps! You can find Old Stove’s taproom on 1st Ave. between Pike and Pine.

Quench your thirst with the Old Stove Pilsner (a spin on the traditional Czech pilsner using Czech Saaz and German Hallertau hops).

Last, but not least is Dot’s Butcher & Deli. Formally in Fremont, Dot’s opened summer of 2016 and we couldn’t be happier! Chef/Owner Miles James has a superb culinary background and is a Seattle native who’s always been proud of what Washington State has to offer when it comes to good meats. Whole animal butchery, ethically raised, hormone free, sourced from local Northwest farms and purveyors – that’s what it’s all about. Located at 1st and Pike in the Corner Market, Dot’s meat case opens at 10am and sandwiches served from 11-3pm.

Satisfy your hunger with Porchetta sandwich (whole roasted pork loin and belly with herbed aioli served with a cabbage slaw). Is your mouth watering yet?
