Fall Flavors and Festivities at SEA

Update on the Port's COVID-19 response Learn more.

October 2, 2019

The onset of autumn’s cooler weather and shorter days sends us reaching for our sweaters, thermostats, and pumpkin flavored everything.

While some (eyeroll) dread the abundance of pumpkin spice-infused treats and products this time of year, our airport dining and retail vendors embrace the season. We have amazing options for pumpkin cravings along with other delicious seasonal options. This time of year also brings the Washington state apple harvest and offers cold-weather favorites like caramel, cinnamon, and pecan.

Here’s where you can find the flavors of fall at SEA.

Alki Bakery Cafes/Hudson, both locations: If you’re waiting for a loved one to arrive, the Alki Bakery Cafes are available before security with several seasonal flavors, including pumpkin pie lattes, apple tarts and pumpkin cheesecake, muffins, tarts, and scones.

Lucky Louie Fish Shack, Central Terminal: A woman-owned and chef-driven concept, don’t miss the pumpkin spice apple shortcake at this quick service eatery! Building from the signature fish-shaped sweet waffle fish, this sweet treat is layered with warm pumpkin spice roasted Gala apples, topped with cinnamon caramel whipped cream and drizzled with salted caramel.

Floret, A Gates: A plant-based eatery with the choice to sit-down and linger, or swing by the espresso bar if you’re in a rush, Floret makes its own pumpkin spice for lattes as well as house made pumpkin bread.

Rel’Lish Burger Lounge, B Gates: Rel’Lish is a sit-down restaurant known for its elevated yet approachable menu, but it also has a convenient grab-and-go counter. Drop by for house-made whole grain pumpkin muffins and pumpkin caramels.

Lady Yum, C Gates: Lady Yum is a must-taste for macaroons at SEA! A local and woman-owned business, there are 15 original flavors always available to travelers along with fresh seasonal and monthly flavors to mix it up. The fall flavors are pumpkin, pear frangipane and butterbeer, as well as apple cobbler available just for October.

Seattle Chocolate, C Gates: Made just a few miles from the airport, Seattle Chocolate covers your sweet tooth with pumpkin spice milk chocolate and truffle bars.

Dish D’Lish, C Gates: Known as a healthy grab-and-go option featuring scratch-made food, Dish D’Lish added a few autumn-inspired things to the menu like house-made whole grain pumpkin muffins and pumpkin caramels. A passenger favorite, the “All The Fixins” turkey sandwich is back with sliced turkey, traditional stuffing, apple cranberry chutney, mayonnaise, and havarti cheese on organic pumpkin focaccia bread.

Caffe D’arte, N Gates: Caffé D’arte is serving up seasonal espresso drinks, including pumpkin spice and caramel cinnamon lattes and pecan frappes.

Starbucks, multiple locations: The pioneer of the pumpkin spice latte (PSL) since first debuting it in 2003, Starbucks has since expanded its menu for fall fanatics. If you’re a “beleafer” as Starbucks lovingly dubbed its PSL devotees, stop by for the PSL or try the all-new pumpkin cream cold brew. Also on the fall menu is the salted caramel mocha, pumpkin cream cheese muffin, pumpkin scone, pumpkin spice madeleines, and cat cake pop.

Use the Sea-Tac App to locate these concessionaires inside the terminal.

Beyond pumpkin sips and bites, SEA is celebrating the harvest season with passengers during three days of events! If you’re traveling on October 30 and 31 and November 1, join us for:

Sea-Tac Airport is getting festive for fall! We are hosting free mini-pumpkin painting for kids at the Children’s Play Area. This is first come, first-served while supplies last. There will also be a photo booth to celebrate the harvest season where passengers can pose with pumpkins and fun props. Take the photo prints as souvenirs or a have them emailed or texted to you.

Airport staff in Halloween costumes will be candy trick-o-treating with passengers that are also dressed up for the occasion! Look for us in Central Terminal while supplies last.

Join Sea-Tac Airport to celebrate Día de los Muertos or “Day of the Dead,” a Mexican holiday to honor and remember loved ones that have passed on. Festivities will include a commemorative altar to remember those gone, but not forgotten as well as food and music in the D Annex at Sea-Tac Airport. This event is sponsored by Latinos Unidos, the Port’s Latino employee resource group.
