Capitol Hill is one of the hippest and most delicious neighborhoods in Seattle, with trendsetting restaurants, music venues, and shops that have become iconic favorites in our region. Your tastebuds can eat like a local in the new Capitol Hill Food Hall, a 7,077 square-foot dining experience with eight food and beverage concepts, at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)! Located between Gates A5 and A6, Capitol Hill Food Hall merges the artisanal flair of this special neighborhood with convenience, choices, Instagram-worthy menus, and a dedicated performance space for live music. 


Locavores will delight in the eight eateries inside Capitol Hill Food Hall serving fixes for coffee cravings, pouring Washington wines, and slinging gourmet grab-and-go, including: 

Caffe Ladro: Caffe Ladro has been an anchor in Seattle coffee for almost 30 years, with 20 coffee shops around the city and its own roastery, including one on Capitol Hill on 15th Ave. E. At SEA, Ladro is serving its beloved espresso alongside pastries, yogurt parfaits, and fruit. 

The Bakery: Inside of Capitol Hill Food Hall, The Bakery offer mouthwatering breakfast and lunchtime sandwiches from Grand Central Bakery as well as baked goods from Schwartz Brothers Bakery.

Salt & Straw: Salt & Straw is an ice cream company based in Portland, Oregon that handmakes small-batch, chef-driven ice cream using local ingredients. Its location at SEA is the ice creamery’s third location in Seattle (Ballard and Capitol Hill) making it an adored but hot commodity (although, technically it’s cold 😊)! Customers will ogle over flavors like sea salt with caramel ribbons, apple pie with cheesecake, roasted strawberry and toasted white chocolate, honey lavender, and the ever-classic vanilla. 

Chowder Shack: Seafood chowder is as much a part of the Pacific Northwest as waterproof outerwear and coffee! This concept serves an assortment of chowders, soups, and bisques ranging from Pike Place Chowder. The menu includes New England or salmon smoked chowders, seafood bisque, broccoli cheddar cheese, baked potato, chicken noodle, kale and sweet potato, and chicken and wild rice soups. Yummy! 

The General Store: While the vibe inside Capitol Hill Food Hall makes it a space worth lingering in, we know not everyone has time to sit and savor. This concept’s menu is built for customers making haste with salads and boxes ready to go, including regional craft sodas and cold-pressed juices, sweet and savory snacks.

True Burger: True Burger is beefing up the selection inside Capitol Hill Food Hall with sizzling burgers and awe-inspiring names like The Godzilla, The Hangover, The Impossible, and The Tribute. The breakfast menu does not disappoint with avocado toast; the beef, egg, and cheese melt; or breakfast baps. Also family friendly, the kids’ menu offers chicken fingers, grilled cheese, and mini burgers. 

Pizza Vino: This Italian-inspired concept has breakfast strombolis and numerous anytime pie options. What’s a stromboli? Ingredients rolled inside of pizza dough and easy to enjoy on the go! The breakfast strombolis are filled with scrambled eggs, pepperoni, and sausage; or you can make it simpler with egg and cheese; or bacon, egg, and cheese. Almost 10 pizzas from sweet to savory will have mouths watering with potato rosemary and roasted garlic; prosciutto, fig, and fontina cheese; pesto chicken and goat cheese; or to classics like cheese, veggie, and pepperoni. 


Tap & Pour: The Tap & Pour bar at Capitol Hill Food Hall is ready to pair your noshes with cocktails, craft beer, and a large selection of Washington state wines. Libations to love include bourbon and whiskey flights.
