While guests ogle the boats and kayaks passing by outside, Chef Manual Frias stays in the kitchen, cooking up inventive takes on American comfort food. He seasons New York strips with house-blended rubs, smothers meatloaf in bourbon mustard glazes, and stirs bacon, pulled pork, and prosciutto into his aptly named three pig mac and cheese.

To complement each hearty dish, the tenders of Eastlake's tiki bar pour local microbrews and whip up tasty cocktails like the John Daly, a blend of lemonade and wild tea-flavored vodka. Though the deck and patio are seasonal, the dining room, complete with its own bar, is open all year. Here, rounds of trivia test knowledge every week, while flat-screens TV show the day's biggest sports games or rowdiest congressional boxing matches.

Subsiding solely on pickled ginger and expired Werther's is a proven tactic to embody a starving artist's lifestyle. However, escaping the chains of cash-strapped bondage only requires one freshly minted Groupon and a trip to Louisa's Café and Bakery. Louisa's combination of creative American cuisine and cozy artisan atmosphere has the mythical power to lure even the most stoic bohemian away from the co-op. Hop aboard today's deal to get $30 worth of robust eats and accompanying drinks for you and a friend at this Seattle staple for $15. Those using this Groupon toward dinner will receive a complimentary dessert, further sweetening the pot.

In keeping with the rest of the Plum Restaurants family, Plum Burgers food truck has no meat products on board. Its burgers are entirely beef-free, organic, and vegan—but within these restrictions, the cooks have gotten more than a little creative. The Jerk + Yam burger piles yam and Jamaican-spiced grilled tofu with caramelized onions, whereas the 8-ounce Mediterranean burger layers mint-kissed seitan with pickled figs. Other patties incorporate lentils, portobello mushrooms, and panko-crusted tempeh as meat substitutes.

Also on the menu are a variety of sandwiches and sides, including the popular Mac & Yease, which is a vegan version of mac and cheese that can also go gluten-free upon request. Milkshakes made with vanilla coconut ice cream conclude meals with cool, sweet sips. To track the truck's location, customers can refer to its homepage. It even takes pickup orders via phone call, text, or really loud yelling from across town.

The friendly baristas at Tea Republik brew up piping-hot, loose-leaf teas in exotic flavors beneath the thatched roof of a mock interior bungalow. Intricately woven wicker chairs, bamboo accents, and vibrant glass pendant lamps further the teashop's tropical appeal, transporting guests to distant islands as they sip Japanese sencha, Egyptian chamomile, and rich rooibos teas. As guests lounge on a sumptuous brown leather couch using the café's free WiFi, the baristas mix oolong, white, herbal, and spicy chai teas with fruit or cream per each customer’s order. Drinks easily pair with the café’s selection of snacks such as iced poppy-seed loaves and breakfast sandwiches. All of Tea Republik's café teas are also available to take home in loose-leaf packages.

While other children were out playing in the mud, Kara Burfeind was inside her kitchen, pawing through bowls of cake batter and flour. It was during those early years that Kara watched her mother transform recipes and ingredients and plain cakes into multi-tier masterpieces.

As an adult, and after a brief detour in public relations, Kara returned to her childhood passion and opened The SweetSide. There, she engineers transcendent cake designs for special occasions, as well as finger-friendly treats such as ice cream sandwiches, cupcakes, and chocolate-covered pretzels. Kara's work has garnered much praise, too, including being named a top three finalist for the city's "Best New Wedding Vendor" by Seattle Bride and earning the honor of #1 Cakes in the 2012 Best of Western Washington awards.

The preparation of Yeti Yogurt Frozen Creations' frozen yogurts never changes: every flavor is made in a kosher facility without high-fructose corn syrup. But each Yeti Yogurt location mixes it up by changing their menu daily to feature a selection of 16 to 24 flavors that range from cupcake batter and orchard cherry to abominable white mocha spiked with BigFoot Java. Along with gluten- and allergen-free yogurts, Yeti Yogurt's self-serve machines stock non-dairy sorbets free of sodium and cholesterol. Customers can then choose from more than 60 toppings to customize their treats with fruit, cereal, and BigFoot Java espresso beans.
