Bellevue for Anyone
Collected by Max Power
Just across Lake Washington from Seattle, Bellevue is a beautiful city with small-town appeal that boasts a cosmopolitan food culture, and great escapes into the great outdoors. Bellevue is as diverse and charming as the nature that surrounds it.

I always love coming here. Located just outside of downtown Seattle, Sushi Maru is a great place for sushi. They have a conveyer belt system that brings the sushi to you, which provides for a fun lively atmosphere, and the food is small portions...

One of my favorite Eastside places to shop is the pan-Asian market Uwajimaya, conveniently located near downtown Bellevue. First stop is always the produce section where the veggies and fruits are high quality, reasonably priced, and artistically...

Top Pot is a Seattle area must. The staff is always friendly and kind, and the donuts and coffee are to die for. I try and go at least once a week. I love the raspberry glazed (pictured) but you can’t go wrong with anything here. They have all the...

Meydenbauer Beach Park in Bellevue is a little strip of nature running from downtown to water's edge. It's a great place to bring a picnic and sit by the lake along Meydenbauer Bay, or even go for a swim—a throwback to simpler times before the...

Definitely one of the best public golf courses I have visited. The grass is perfectly manicured and the holes are fun, yet challenging. For the golfer who wants to play a round, and be back to downtown in time for dinner, the Bellevue Golf Course...

Chism Beach Park is not far from the heart of Bellevue, but still remains somewhat off the beaten path. It's a great place for a quiet lakeside stroll, or to dip your toes in the lake in the summer months. Also, it's a great place for views across...

Probably the best specialty coffee shop in Bellevue, Cesura serves up heavenly Caffe Lusso Beans and a changing menu of other small-batch roasters. Free Wi-Fi, outlets to plug in your cell and laptop, truly delicious breakfast sandwiches, and...

With $30 family entry (two adults and up to four children) or $10 for adults, the Bellevue Art Museum is a great place for families looking to get out of the rain or the hustle and bustle of downtown Bellevue. The exhibits are beautiful and...

I love going to Kirkland and renting a paddle board on a hot summer day on Lake Washington. Kids and adults alike love having fun and staying active on the lake. Kirkland is a great place to do that. Just be sure to bring sunscreen and a towel!

Fran's Chocolates is a must-visit for chocoholics. The upscale and handmade truffles, caramels, and more make for a perfect gift—though be sure to treat yourself too! The salted caramel is to die for; or buy one of the assortments to sample a...

A Seattle institution with a focus on sustainably sourced and fair trade coffee, Caffe Ladro has been around since the early 1990s, and now offers 14 locations around town. Each coffee shop has its own decor and a slightly different feel, but all...
