  1. Los Agaves inside Pike Place Market in Downtown Seattle is a great option for locals and tourists craving Mexican food in the midst of the hustle and bustle atmosphere.

  2. This is a great spot for breakfast and lunch burritos. It is affordable considering they are located inside Pike Place Market!

    We enjoyed their chorizo breakfast burrito and carne asada lunch burrito. They don’t skimp on the meat either. Yums!
