Georgetown Bites 2019


This past weekend was the Georgetown Bites event in Seattle. This annual food event in Georgetown features the local businesses. This year thirty four places participated. Each ticket is five bucks and when you visit the businesses, you exchange one ticket for a food or drink item. I took my son so we could get some mother and son time. We had already eaten lunch, so we decided to do a dessert crawl.

Our first stop was Side Hustle Doughnuts inside the Lowercase Brewing. Their item for the event was one doughnut and a small beer. Their doughnuts are small, but incredibly soft and fluffy. The flavor that day for the event were coffee filled doughnuts. I gave my son the doughnut and I took the beer. I chose a Liberty Blonde, one of the lightest they had since I'm not a big beer person. We sat outside in the warm spring sunshine and relaxed. Then it was off to the next spot.

See my first visit to Side Hustle Doughnuts here.

Next up, we shared some soft serve at Seattle Freeze. The line was long thanks to the event and one person manning the soft serve machine, which makes one at a time. For one ticket, you could choose either a doughnut, an ice cream with one mix-in and one topping, or pork sliders they had that day  for the event. We choose chocolate soft serve with some potato chips mixed in and their salted caramel sauce drizzled on top. It was the perfect amount to share and the ice cream was really tasty with the salty chips and caramel sauce.

For our final stop, since we only had one ticket left, we visited Fran's to get some chocolate to take home to the rest of the family. Their item was a Peanut Butter Cup and a Fran's Gold Bar, a dark chocolate candy bar with almonds and their rich and buttery caramel. They also were handing out samples, so we each had a dark chocolate Belgian chocolate that was divine. Their location in Georgetown is not only a gorgeous storefront, but also a production and viewing area. We were able to watch some chocolate making through the large windows. That day they were working on their Easter products.

I don't have a previous post from this location in Georgetown, but I've visited Fran's in downtown Seattle, and you can see that post here.

My son and I had so much fun during our dessert crawl at Georgetown Bites and I can't wait for next year!

Get your tickets! Event goers stand in line to purchase their tickets for each business.

I always love the flyers for the Georgetown events.

It's so cute, I had to take a picture!

My camera eats first, so my son had to wait for the doughnut.

Seattle Freeze in Georgetown has awesome soft serve and doughnuts. It can be a dangerous place since its so close to my house.

Your ticket, please!

Our chocolate soft serve. Time to dig in!

The interesting architecture in Georgetown shows you why its Seattle's oldest neighborhood.  

A Belgian dark chocolate sample we received when we walked into Fran's. I love how smooth and rich their chocolate is. Its some of the best you'll find anywhere.

Customers inside Fran's select their chocolates from the beautiful and drool worthy display.

My favorite part of this location is the staircase. That day, there were flowers and Easter products on display. Their Georgetown location is totally worth a visit and that's before you even bite into a chocolate.

Hard at work. We watched a little of the chocolate production through the big windows.

Check out these pretty chocolate Easter eggs. I would love for the Easter Bunny to bring me one of those!
