Your Complete Guide to Women-Owned Restaurants In Seattle: 2021 Edition

For Women's History Month 2021 and All Year
March 1, 2021
Chef Kristi Brown of That Brown Girl Cooks recently opened the much-anticipated "Seattle soul food" restaurant Communion with her son Damon Bomar. (Communion via Facebook)

While you can, and should, support women-owned restaurants every day of the year, there are a couple of especially good times to do it, including the entirety of March (Women's History Month), March 8 in particular (International Women's Day), and August 26 (Women's Equality Day). To help you celebrate any and all of those things, we've compiled this list of restaurants, cafes, and bars in Seattle that are owned by women (at least partially—some of these are co-owned by men). We've updated this list for 2021 so you can find places to get takeout (like Kamonegi), places with outdoor seating (like Oddfellows, which reopens after a winter hiatus on March 4), new and buzzy places (like Communion and Musang), and more.

Please note: While we've done our best to make this as comprehensive as possible, there may be women-owned restaurants in Seattle that we don't know about or otherwise unintentionally left off this list. If we're missing something, please email us and let us know, and we'll fix it as soon as we can. Thanks!
