Dinner and Dessert in Burien, WA | Piacere Trattoria and Treat Cookies


Strawberry and Vanilla swirl soft serve with Oreo pieces from Treat Cookies. 

Looking to explore the areas outside of Seattle? Check out Burien, most notably, Old Burien. This cute downtown area of Burien has lots of restaurants, bars, stores, and dessert spots. We enjoyed some happy hour at Piacere Trattoria. The spring day was sunny and warm for April, and we ate at one of their outside tables. We made HH by a minute, and I was glad we did since their menu had lots of deals. In this time of inflation, keep a look out for HH prices if you wish to dine out. 

We each had a cocktail. I had a Rum Punch, a steal at just $7. My husband had a Purple Lamborghini, which was $10. The food items were great on the menu. We went with the Pizza Margherita ($13), the Arancini ($8), and the Poutine ($10). Everything tasted good and we were happy with the prices. It felt extra nice eating outside since it had been a while. 

After dinner, we walked about a block down 152nd St to Treat Cookies to try their soft serve. We visited before around the time they first opened and tried their incredible cookies. That was two years ago, so it was time to go back! Their cookies are thick and perfect for sharing, and they always have unique flavors. 

They currently have Strawberry and Vanilla soft serve flavors, and they can do a swirl of both. I chose a swirl in a cup and I added Oreo pieces as a topping. We also got a Double Chocolate cookie with it. The soft serve with the topping was $5 and the cookie was $2.50. Not bad prices at all, especially if you're sharing your treat. 

The ice cream had a delicious strawberry flavor and melted quickly. The chocolate cookie was incredibly rich, and we loved the chocolate frosting on top. If you're a cookie and soft serve fan, go visit Treat Cookies! 

It was fun wandering around this area of Burien, and the people there are so friendly. It feels like a small town in Washington or Montana, which I liked.

This Poutine had french fries, burrata, and a beef reduction.
