Roosevelt is a Seattle neighborhood in the north end of the city that lets you experience the best that city life has to offer while being out of the traffic congestion of downtown. It’s one of the best neighborhoods in Seattle, and offers pedestrian friendly streets that come alive with vibrant restaurants, coffee shops, and community parks with open green spaces that invite you to stay a while. 

Centrally Located Between City and Nature 

Roosevelt strikes the right balance of urban excitement and outdoor adventure by being just a short walk away from the shores of Green Lake and just a short drive away from Downtown Seattle. 

Follow the pedestrian friendly walkways west to discover the open green space that Green Lake Park has to offer, or venture east to discover Ravenna Ravine and Cowen Park waiting to be explored. If city life is more your speed, you can take easily accessible public transit (via the Link light rail) into a famed Seattle neighborhood like Ballard, Queen Anne, or Magnolia. 

Coffee Shops and Restaurants Perfect for Indulging 

Artisan coffee makers and acclaimed chefs have long been honing their crafts in shops and restaurants throughout Roosevelt. Broadcast Coffee serves up ethically-sourced cups of joe, while Armistice Coffee Roaster uses manual machines that let them adjust at every step for the perfect roast (and the perfect sip!).

If you’re more interested in locally-made cocktails and fare, you can find burgers served hot with chipotle aioli at The Westy’s Roosevelt location, or enjoy comforting classic pastas with a side of red wine at Brunello Ristorante Italiano

Public Transit and Quick Access to Seattle’s Many Attractions

You can venture out of Roosevelt and journey to your Seattle neighborhood of choice with the help of Sound Transit’s Link light rail system, which has a stop at Roosevelt Station that can take you upward toward Northgate or downward toward Downtown Seattle and SeaTac. 

Whether you use public transit to commute or explore, Roosevelt puts you right in the middle of where you want to be.
