Stoned & Starving in Seattle
With many longtime users, a laid-back and open-minded local culture and now a national reputation for blazing the trail of legal cannabis, Seattle is a fantastic city for anyone who enjoys marijuana. And whether you partake in the form of flower, vapes or concentrates, there’s one common result: you’re probably going to get hungry.
Fortunately, Seattle’s food culture is just as rich and diverse as its cannabis culture. After much debate and discussion, we’ve narrowed down our ultimate list of the best places to eat in Seattle when you’re high and are proud to present our very favorite spots to indulge in each central Seattle neighborhood.

The brick-and-mortar home of the restaurant (and popular food trucks) that claims to have “the most authentic Mexican food in Seattle” is found on 15th in Ballard.
Like the name suggests, Sen will allow you to slurp to your heart’s content with a wide range of specialty noodle dishes and build-your-own options.
Seattle’s plant-based population has come to love No Bones, a casual vegan spot offering the kinds of fried treats and sandwiches you’ll be craving when that favorite strain kicks in.
When only saucy, spicy homestyle Mexican food will satisfy your cravings, make your way to Senor Moose for both classic dishes and some regional favorites you might have never tried before.
Ezell’s locations have popped all over King County, but if you want to satisfy your stoned taste buds with Seattle’s best fried chicken, the original location in Seattle’s historic Central District is a must.
Annapurna should suit your high with both taste and location: the Indian, Nepalese and Tibetan flavors can’t be beat and the cozy basement vibes will help you settle in and enjoy your meal.
When you’re in the market for 24-hour comfort food in the heart of Capitol Hill, Lost Lake has you covered with diner favorites like chicken fried steak and a great line up of scrambles and benedicts.
Open until 2:30 AM on weekends, Hot Mama’s has helped many a cannabis-loving Capitol Hill resident cap off the perfect chill weekend night with their New York-style pies and slices.
With an elegant fireplace and a baby grand piano, this classy, comfortable space has a special place in the hearts of bookish marijuana fans for their popular silent reading nights.
Poke is everywhere in Seattle these days, but this idiosyncratic spot in a Wallingford convenience store was early to the craze and is still as good as it gets for poke bowls and sushi burritos (yep, that’s a thing).
Sometimes, it’s right there in the name: this newer Fremont spot serves and delivers cookies until 3 AM on weekends. Midnight Cookie Co. is popular with everybody, but it’s a match made in heaven for cannabis lovers.
Red Star brings you killer tacos and a late-night taco happy hour right in the heart of Fremont that makes filling up after a blissful night with your favorite strain easier than ever.
Green Lake & North Seattle
After enjoying some outdoor weed by Green Lake or rounding out a late night anywhere in the Aurora corridor, Beth’s combination of huge portions and 24-hour service makes the Seattle institution still tough to beat.
A casual vibe, a central location in the heart of East Green Lake and plenty of solid vegetarian and gluten-free options make Turnpike a great choice for a hazy pizza session in one of Seattle’s most distinct neighborhoods.
If you find yourself settling into a mellow high way up at the Northern edge of Seattle, make your way to Little Ting’s for some truly potent dumplings.
The freshness and flavor at Thai Tom have made it one of the most popular Thai spots in town. Depending on what kind of high you’re working with, you can either soak in the smells and hustle and bustle of their dining area or hit them up for fast take out.
Memo’s certainly isn’t one for more snobby foodies, but if you want to enjoy some cheap tacos (and maybe some nostalgia for your campus stoner days), this U District staple is a reliable late night fix.
With two U District locations open (very) late, being stoned in the U District means you’re never far away from the delicious gyros, shawarma and other Mediterranean favorites at Shawarma King.
The arepas, appetizers and other menu items here feel like they were designed especially with stoned diners in mind: fresh ingredients, melty cheese, super filling portions and all kinds of fried goodness.
Jade garden’s top-notch dim sum is ideal for a severe case of the munchies: the food will just keep on coming as long as you need it to.
In a city with dozens of great Pho options, Pho Ba is one of the most popular. A warm, filling bowl of Pho is the perfect complement to a relaxing high, especially on a cold, rainy Seattle day.
After you and your friends have passed around your favorite pre-roll or flower from Evergreen Market, you can complete the night with some family-style dining on Ciudad’s grilled meats and small plates.
Hangar Café is ideal for a post-wake-and-bake breakfast, but their sweet and savory crepes and other satisfying plates will hit the spot any time.
Anyone who has ever been under the influence in Seattle has probably stopped into one of Dick’s Drive-In’s six Seattle area eateries for their reliable late-night burgers, fries and shakes.
With a location downtown near the REI flagship store and another up North in Greenwood, Razzi’s offers large servings of pizza and pasta, including some of the best vegan and gluten-free options in town.
El Boraccho’s delicious tacos are available until 2 AM in Ballard and 11 PM at the Pike Place market.
Rancho Bravo brings you tasty burritos, tacos and tamales with three locations clustered in Fremont, Wallingford and the U District and a fourth down in the Pike/Pine corridor on Capitol Hill.
New York-style pizza by the slice from Big Mario’s is one of the most reliable Seattle spots for late-night stoned dining in Ballard, Lower Queen Anne or Capitol Hill.
13 Coins is one of the very best in the 24-hour-dining game: you can settle down into a booth and enjoy their diverse menu at locations downtown (near the King Street station) and outside the city limits in Bellevue and Sea-Tac.
The beloved international dumpling chain has four munchies-friendly locations in the Seattle area in Pacific Place, U Village, Bellevue and Southcenter.
