Dive Into a Good Book at Queen Anne Book Company Near AVA Queen Anne in Seattle

Without the widespread support of the community, Queen Anne Book Company wouldn't be standing today. When news spread that it was to open in 2013—replacing the previous neighborhood book store that had just closed up shop—volunteers from all over the community turned out to help with the store's makeover. From donating shelves to arranging appearances by authors, the volunteers help get the ball rolling for what would become an independent book store as popular as its predecessor.

Located not far from AVA Queen Anne, Queen Anne Book Company boasts a staff as dedicated as these community volunteers. They gladly work with customers to help them find any book they're looking for, and if it's not at the store, the staff can special order it for you. If you don't have a specific book in mind, check out the staff recommendations (they're scattered throughout the shop) for some inspiration.

Zeeks Pizza Near Seattle's AVA Queen Anne: Don't Bother Inquiring About the Dough Recipe

Don't bother asking your server at Zeeks Pizza what's in the crust. Even if he or she wanted to share the ingredient list with you, it would be strictly prohibited. The recipe for Zeeks' house-made dough is a closely held secret, but customers don't seem to mind. Just because you can't craft the thin-crust pies back at AVA Queen Anne doesn't mean you can't enjoy them here.

Head to the Dravus Street Zeeks for a convenient dinner of gourmet pizza. The Forager is a popular option, strewn with arugula, roasted red peppers, fresh portobello mushrooms, and prosciutto. However, if you're a big fan of meat, you might want to try another favorite, the Wood Butcher. This pie sports Italian sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and a dusting of fresh oregano. Vegetarians can dig into the Quentin Florentino, which showcases goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and artichoke hearts under an olive oil glaze.
