Queen Anne has the atmosphere of a small town within a city. There’s a wide range of Queen Anne businesses, which fill the commercial and office spaces along Queen Anne Ave. N, Roy and Mercer Streets in Lower Queen Anne, and McGraw, Boston, and Galer Streets on top of the hill.
The restaurants on and in Queen Anne feature delicious Mom-and-Pop eateries that have been around for years, such as the Olympia Pizza & Spaghetti House and the 5 Spot Restaurant. In addition, several well-known Seattle restauranteurs have made Queen Anne home to one or two of their renowned dining creations, like Ethan Stowell’s How to Cook a Wolf.
The neighborhood is home to a variety of personal service providers, such as nail and hair salons and spas, massage therapy studios, and a handful of skincare and waxing spas. In addition, a few medical practitioners are spread across and around the hill, including dentists, chiropractors, primary care clinics – like the Swedish Clinic on Queen Anne Ave.
Stuhlberg’s and the Queen Anne Dispatch are two boutiques that have been around for quite awhile on the hill, and serve as a template for the unique shops you’ll find in the neighborhood. From home décor, to apparel and accessories, to local video stores and board game boutiques, Queen Anne is a neighborhood rife with one-of-a-kind shopping opportunities.
