Savor the Season at SEA!

SEA Airport is bustling during the holiday travel season! In the midst of the cheer and merriment, this can also mean congestion on the drives, longer lines at security checkpoints, and an airport that’s humming with travelers going over the river and to the woods.

We get that the airport is a stop along the way to spend the holidays with your loved ones, but while you’re here, we want to share our warm holiday wishes with this guide for where to find your favorite winter flavors like eggnog, peppermint, nutmeg, cinnamon, cranberry, and gingerbread at SEA. Additionally, explore the SEA Airport Holiday Travel Edition for our best travel tips.

Lucky Louie Fish Shack, Central Terminal: A woman-owned and chef-driven concept, don’t miss the Chocolate Peppermint Parfait at this quick service eatery! Building from the signature waffle fish, this sweet treat is layered with chocolate mousse and topped with peppermint whipped cream, crushed candy canes, and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Only a grinch would turn this down.

Caffe D’arte, N Gates: Caffé D’arte, a locally- and minority-owned Italian coffee roasting company, is serving up high-quality espresso, drip coffees, pastries, sandwiches, and snacks. Also brewing are seasonal espresso drinks like the gingerbread latte, peppermint mocha, and eggnog latte.

Floret, A Gates: A plant-based eatery with grab and go or linger longer options, Floret offers fresh, local, vibrant, vegetarian holiday fare to fuel your journey ahead. It’s pie season at Floret with vegan and gluten-free desserts like the dark chocolate pecan tart with chocolate cherry whipped cream, mulled port cherries, and salted pecan clusters, or pumpkin pie with whipped coconut cream. Swing by the espresso bar for some holiday cheer.

Rel’Lish Burger Lounge, B Gates: Rel’Lish is a sit-down restaurant known for its elevated yet approachable menu inspired by PNW Chef Kathy Casey. Let your heart be light and your belt be tight with a Northwest Chicken Burger with cranberry apple chutney, goat cheese, and arugula paired with a Cranberry Rosemary Mule made from Tito’s vodka and Q ginger beer.

Lady Yum, C Gates: Lady Yum is a must-taste for macaroons at SEA! A local and woman-owned business, there are 15 original flavors that are always available to travelers along with new seasonal and monthly flavors to mix it up. The fall flavors are pumpkin, pear frangipane, and butterbeer. Special flavors available only in November are cranberry orange and bear claw.

Seattle Chocolate, C Gates: Made just a few miles from the airport, Seattle Chocolate is the essence of the PNW wrapped into creamy, built-to-share truffles and bars. Stop by to satisfy your sweet tooth with the holiday collection, illustrated by Seattle artist Frida Clements, including Hot Buttered Rum, Candy Cane Crunch, Holiday Spiced Nuts, Peanut Butter Crisp, Toffee Sea Salt, and Winter Orange Spice truffle bars. The woodland gift boxes of chocolate truffles offer assorted flavors along with the Hanukkah gourmet truffle bag.

Dish D’Lish, C Gates: Known as a healthy grab-and-go option featuring scratch-made food, Dish D’Lish added a few holiday-inspired things to the menu like Hammond’s Hand Made Candy Canes. A passenger favorite, the “All The Fixins” turkey sandwich is back with sliced turkey, traditional stuffing, apple cranberry chutney, mayonnaise, and Havarti cheese on organic pumpkin focaccia bread.

Starbucks, multiple locations: Starbucks is ringing in the holidays with fan favorites such as the beloved Peppermint Mocha returning for the 17th year! Holiday beverages include the toasted white chocolate mocha, peppermint mocha, caramel brulée latte, chestnut praline latte, and eggnog latte. The seasonal food menu encompasses the holiday turkey and stuffing panini, cranberry bliss bar, sugar plum cheese Danish, snowman cookie, gingerbread loaf, peppermint brownie cake pop, and snowman cake pop.

Season’s Eatings! Use the Sea-Tac App to locate these concessionaires inside the terminal.
