There’s no better place to splurge on a little self-care than in Edmonds. Take a spa day. Go on a shopping spree just because. Belly up to the best food in town. Have that piece of cake. And, pick up a bottle of vino at Arista Wine Cellars or Bucatini before you go.

Find your heart’s desire right here.

Start with coffee and a pick-me-up. Café Louvre’s specialty espresso drinks (affogato, espresso con panna) and sandwiches made to order (egg and cheese English muffin, turkey and ham croissant) are sure to hit the spot. Red Twig Bakery & Café serves scratch-made cinnamon rolls, maple scones, Babka rolls, and cinnamon crumb cake, not to mention fabulous, farm-fresh breakfast and lunch, like Eggs Benedict, beet and feta Panzanella, and Philly Cheesesteak crepes. 

Jaiiya Café’s Turkish Eggs with Dalgona — Korean whipped iced coffee — are all the rage.

So is Walnut Street Coffee with its super-friendly, arty hipster vibe, pastries from Salmonberry Goods, burritos from Ovens to Betsy, heart-foamed lattes, and unique merch. The quiche and old-fashioned donuts at Waterfront Coffee Company make perfect companions if you’re considering hopping on a ferry for a day trip. Almost every coffee house and bakery has options for vegetarians and vegans, too.

The shopping here is unreal. 

Jewelry? Edmonds boasts tons of selections, whether you’re interested in getting engaged, treating yourself to major bling, into funky, chunky costume jewelry, antique settings, or love all things citrine. Find your bliss at Comstock Jewelers, Cline Jewelers, J Rankin Jewelers, Crow, C’est la Vie, Treasures and Teas, Rogue, MaJe Gallery, The Curious Nest, Saetia, The Wishing Stone, Elegant Gems Ltd., and Pelindaba Lavender, to name just a few.

Clothes? Edmonds’ style is one-of-a-kind. Saetia, Rebekah’s Boutique, Pear Tree Consignment, Rogue, Little Bipsy and Anchor Chic Consignment have nice selections by local and international designers.

When you’re done shopping, go ahead and pamper yourself. You have a lot of salon spas to choose from around here. Ombú Salon and Spa does classy custom cuts, skin rejuvenation, eyebrow sculpting/tinting/dermaplaning, and massage. Sugarology, housed in a historical home, is a spa specializing in sugaring hair removal and natural clinical skincare techniques and offers a professional skin care line. Salon MODA Edmonds is open for all your hair, facial, and waxing needs, offering luxury lash fills, Brazilian waxing, PCA peels, and preventative/corrective facials, as well as cut, color, and styling. Bellissimo Beauty Bar’s Glam Squad is ready to give you the works — full balayage, blowouts, updos, perms, hair extensions, and keratin complex smoothing treatments. Slate is a full-service salon and spa, specializing in aromatherapy, hot stone massage, cupping, facials, microdermabrasion, peels, eyelash extensions, microblading, bridal services, hair treatments, and mani–pedis.

Finally, feed your hunger good and proper with a feast for the senses. 

Destination restaurants, waterfront dining, family-style diners, bistros and cafes, ethnic cuisine, hearty comfort food, surf ‘n turf…it’s all here. 

SanKai, for sushi lovers. Bar Dojo’s international menu—spicy miso pork belly ramen, Dungeness okonomiyaki fried rice, salt & pepper calamari, and ahi poke nachos. The MAR•KET’s fresh seafood dishes, like their iconic lobster rolls, crab in a bag, and those hot, crispy fat fries to go with everything. Barkada’s mind-blowing Filipino/NW/Hawaiian mixed plates. 

Fire and The Feast, for wood-fired pizza and homemade pasta. Epulo Bistro’s Kobe beef burgers and zeppole, and delicious specials. ChurchKey’s elevated pub fare (Shepherd’s Pie, Bangers and Mash, buttered chicken and curried rice, smoked bratwurst flatbread). 

Maize & Barley’s Latin-Caribbean small bites with big flavors, and well-sourced home brews. Calypso’s Caribbean jerk chicken wings, lobster mac & cheese, coconut prawns, curried goat, and rasta pasta. Las Brisas’ Latin/Mexican-posh Arroz con Pollo, Chicken Mole, spicy goat cheese and grilled zucchini quesadilla, pozole, and Dungeness Crab enchiladas. 

Nothing beats dining with a view at Arnie’s or Anthony’s Beach Café, right on the waterfront. Watch the boats and ferries go by, while diving into a bowl of clam chowder, fish & chips, fish tacos, and chargrilled wild salmon.
