Try these top restaurants at Sea-Tac before your next flight!
If you’ve ever had a rough day of travel, you probably know how vital good airport food is to keeping your sanity. Luckily, we have been blessed with a wealth of delicious options at our very own Sea-Tac Airport. So much so, that it can sometimes be hard to decide where to eat before your flight. Luckily The Washington Post recently did a deep dive into the top restaurants at every major airport in the States, including Sea-Tac. They divided their picks at each airport into three categories: sit-down, quick-serve, and wild card.
According to the Washington Post, the best sit-down restaurant at Sea-Tac is Africa Lounge.
Here is what they had to say about Africa Lounge:
Zebra print seat backs and a faux elephant head above the bar signal this isn’t your average sports bar. In addition to “super nachos” and chicken wings, customers can order spicy beef sambusas (stuffed pastry) served with jollof rice and plantains.
Located near Gate A4, Africa Lounge also offers local beers on draft and wines from South African regions.
The Post’s favorite quick-serve option at Sea-Tac is Floret, an arm of Seattle’s vegetarian Cafe Flora. A lot of quick food options at the airport aren’t very healthy so they loved that Floret “makes its own cinnamon rolls, grain bowls, black bean burgers and portobello mushroom French dips.” You can grab-and-go if you’re in a rush or sit down for one of their vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free dishes.
As a bonus, you can get kombucha and Rachel’s Ginger Beer in addition to coffee at Floret. You can find it near Gate A1.
Finally, their wild card pick is Beecher’s Handmade Cheese. Beecher’s is known for its shop at Pike Place Market that was once visited by Anthony Bourdain, but it also has locations in Bellevue and at Sea-Tac Airport.
At their Sea-Tac location (found in Concourse C), you can order lunch, dinner, and even breakfast. Of course you can order a delicious bowl of mac and cheese, but if you’re a little worried about eating something so heavy before your flight they have soups and salads as well.
