During the workday, it may be tough to think of a good spot to grab a bite for lunch unless you’re craving something specific. And, let’s be honest, a busy morning of work can lead you to draw a blank more often than not. Here are a few spots scattered around the city to consider for your lunchtime enjoyment…

Harried & Hungry | 1415 3rd Avenue | 206-264-7900

Fresh, colorful and delicious, too! Harried & Hungry is a great spot for catering those office lunches but the downtown cafe is centrally located for those who work in the nearby high rise office buildings. This isn’t your average deli; the salads have a generous selection of toppings and the sandwiches are a step above what you’d find elsewhere. Grab lunch to go or dine in to take a longer break from your desk.

Los Chilangos | 14008 NE 8th Street, Bellevue | 425-221-7623

For those who work in Bellevue, step away from your desk and pop over to visit Taqueria Los Chilangos’ food truck for some serious Mexican street food. Los Chilangos also offers catering; but the taco truck is an experience. Order your favorite tacos, tortas, quesadillas or burritos. Don’t skip the salsa; theirs is delicious!

Petra Cafe | 1933 7th Avenue | 206-448-2604

Located over in Belltown at the Denny Triangle, Petra Cafe is the perfect spot for a drop-in lunch. It’s steps away from Amazon’s campus, so the cafe is a great spot for those employees and other nearby Downtown- and Belltown-ers. Petra Cafe features a lunch-style service of their sister restaurant’s delicious Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. Choose your protein, then customize it with veggies and sauces and enjoy it as a wrap, rice bowl or salad. Petra Bistro also offers catering for office lunches!

Sprout | 512 2nd Avenue

Gluten free and loving it! Sprout is the spot for custom salads and wraps, and guys, these are each seriously stacked; they don’t scrimp on the toppings/stuffings. From the South by Northwest, which is a great mix of Northwest ingredients in Southwest combination, to the Peanut Square, with a jumble of tastefully chosen ingredients from the garden, you’re going to feel great after your lunch thanks to the healthy good-ness. Get some froyo for dessert!
