Yummy Comfort Foods for Fall

We’re not sure why, but as the leaves change colors and the chill of late fall and early winter sets in, we always find ourselves craving our favorite classic comfort foods.

Whatever the reason, we have a serious appetite for some scrumptious fall favorites, and luckily restaurants all over Pacific Place are ready to satisfy our hunger.

Here are a few of our favorite comfort foods to indulge in this fall:


Everyone knows that fall at Starbucks means all things pumpkin. From the classic pumpkin spice latte, to the mouth-watering pumpkin scone, to the indulgent pumpkin cream cheese muffin, Starbucks knows how to utilize fall’s favorite fruit (Yes, pumpkin is a fruit, we looked it up.)!

If you’re feeling like you’re going into pumpkin overload, try a chocolate chai tea latte to help you warm up. The combination of chocolate and chai is unique, sweet and seriously addictive.

Pike Place Chowder

Nothing warms up a grey fall day quite like a steaming hot bowl of clam chowder, and our friends at Pike Place Chowder are the best in the business! We’re always craving their award-winning, classic clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, but if you feel like mixing it up, try their smoked salmon chowder as a unique and delicious change of pace.

Their rolls and sandwiches are the perfect complement to a cup of chowder too! We can’t get enough of the fresh and flaky Dungeness crab roll!

Il Fornaio

We couldn’t mention fabulous fall comfort foods without mentioning our friends at Il Fornaio. Their menu is full of hearty Italian dishes that can satisfy the most intense rainy-day cravings. Try their Cappellacci di Zucca, for example. This tender ravioli is filled with butternut squash, (another fall favorite), and walnuts topped with tomato sauce, brown butter, Parmigiano, and crispy sage. Pair this dish with a fabulous glass of wine and you’ll forget all about the dreary Seattle drizzle.

They have a truly UNBELIEVABLE selection of local and international wines to choose from, and an artisan menu of delicious and light shareable plates. Mix and match as you try all kinds of unique wines from around the world, and pair them with some delicious finger foods!
