6 drive-thrus to swing by with a napping kid in your car
Finding healthy, accessible food on the go can be a huge challenge, especially when you’re toting your kid with you. If you’re looking to grab a meal or snack when your kid is napping in the backseat, Seattle has some surprisingly tasty (and easy) options.
Ballard’s biscuit haven Morsel, former site of the Blue Dog Cafe, offers amazing, generously sized biscuits and great espresso. Their drive-thru is conveniently located just off 15th Ave. NW, so you can swing through and pick up a drink and biscuits to go. Their full menu of biscuit sandwiches is only available in the restaurant, although you can take them to go. Their staff is always patient and friendly, which helps to ease those early mornings! The drive-thru is open 7 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday. 5905 15th Ave NW, Seattle, 98107
Jucivana’s delicious smoothies and fresh juices are practically a meal by themselves. If you’re looking for something heartier to enjoy with your smoothie, they’ve got pastries and whole-grain sandwiches to tide you over. The drive-thru is open from 6 am to 6 pm from Monday to Saturday. 10 Boren Ave S, Seattle, 98144
Top Pot may be a chain, but their donuts are far from ordinary. With their huge array of flavors (forty in all!), you’ll be able to please even the pickiest eater.
