Favorite Culinary Cookbook Stores in Seattle

Book Larder

This bookstore/shop/kitchen is a great spot to find recipe books or maybe attend a cooking lesson. It is right across from Paseo, a Cuban sandwich place known for their hefty porkilicious servings. Perhaps one day you can reserve the kitchen at Larder to teach your recipe to friends. PS. I came here and the place smelled like a lemony orange cake was baking in the oven (because there was!).

Elliot Bay Book Company

This bookstore maybe Seattle’s best bookstore for browsing. Oddfellows Cafe is inside where you can purchase coffee, tea with sandwiches, salads, and pastries. I love coming here for an afternoon tea, especially on a cold and rainy day. The creaks and crackles as you walk on the wooden floor are music to my ears! PS- The culinary books are located just to the cafe.

Third Place Books

After a pleasant stroll in Seward Park, stop by this bookstore to peruse their second-hand books as you will undoubtedly find something that will pique your interest. I love that they have second-hand books with newly released books and both are reasonably priced. Sometimes it is hard to tell which is the second-hand books as they are in almost new condition. There is also a cafe inside to satisfy any Seattleite’s palate.
