Seeds Bistro & Bar

Modern American in La Conner

Calling itself the 'seediest place in the valley,' farm-to-table Seeds serves all the fresh produce, fish and meats you'd hope for, all in brunch-cafe-style friendliness. The menu includes everything from creative salads to Samish Bay oysters and charbroiled pork tenderloin, and vegetarians and gluten-free folks are well catered for. Finish your meal with a slice of homemade berry pie.

The best time to visit is happy hour (3pm to 6pm daily) when you can sample several $8 to $10 plates of the restaurant's specialties.
