Baguette Box 4


Welcome to the grown up sandwich shop. Here you’ll find bold flavors, crusty bread, and a drink or two if it suits your mood. (The Capitol Hill location offers happy hour from 4 – 6 PM featuring 30% off beer, wine, and fries.)

Baguette Box’s selection of warm and cold sandwiches ranges from battered chicken with sweet tangy sauce and caramelized onions to tuna packed with tarragon, parsley, capers, hardboiled eggs, and radishes. (Those adverse to cilantro will want to take note of this frequent menu star and ask for it to be left off.)

The chef often braises proteins which makes for tender, flavorful meat. Pork shoulder, pork belly, and beef consistently receive his slow cooking attention, while lamb makes noteworthy special appearances.
Sides are worth the extra calories, but these sandwiches are big enough to satisfy a hungry appetite. So consider sharing. Their beet salad is tossed in garlic olive oil for a tangy sweet taste. While their hand cut fries are good, the more expensive truffle ones are excellent.

Word to the wise, bring a jacket. Their lofted ceilings and cement floor make for a dining experience on the cold side.

About Mikaela Cowles

I’m a food-gobbling, book-reading, aspiring photog. Born and raised in Seattle, I love dancing in the rain, bouquets of fresh basil and green grass between my toes. I like how kneading butter into flour makes my fingers soft. I’m passionate about all things sweet potato. I prefer my coffee black, my scotch on the rocks and my steak bloody. I hunt, when I have time; play basketball; and hike. I’ve been known to laugh so hard I hyperventilate. And, I’m the owner of Making Language Count, a boutique freelance writing business.

    Oh Mikaela! How I wish I lived near you….or that you would come to D.C. and find some great restaurants to critique here! I love grown up sandwiches and this looks just fabulous! The best I can hope to do is recreate what you feature….so keep those wonderful reviews coming! : )

    I just noticed this place while walking home from the train station Sunday morning. I live right down the street from the Capital Hill location and that happy hour is calling my name! Monsoon and Ba Bar are probably my two favorite restaurants in Seattle so I can’t imagine how this place could be bad- thanks for the reminder!!

      What a fun area to live in! Enjoy Happy Hour. And, I completely agree about Ba Bar. SO GOOD. I haven’t been to Monsoon yet, but it sounds like I should rectify that soon 😉
