Before we discover the most instagrammable places in this neighborhood, what and where is Pioneer Square?

Did you know that Pioneer Square was Seattle’s first downtown area? The early settlers came to Seattle area/Elliot Bay in the 1850s. Chief Seattle, the leader of the Duwamish and Suquamish tribes who had lived in the area for over 10,000 years, sought to create an alliance with the white settlers. You can reach about Pioneer Square’s incredibly rich history here.

Pioneer Square is right next to Seattle’s main downtown area, International District/Chinatown, and sports stadiums.  It’s filled with adorable historic buildings, great places to eat, and of course, insta-worthy places!

The London Plane is probably one of the most well-known Instagram worthy spots in the city. If you’re looking for a place to brunch and take an Instagrammable bunch photo, the London plane is the spot! The London Plane also has an adorable mini flower shop set up inside. If you’re looking to take photos inside, make sure you ask for permission and buy something (out of courtesy). This place can get super busy – especially if you’re trying to take photos on a Saturday or Sunday.

The great thing about the London Plane is that this Seattle restaurant is instagrammable on the inside AND on the outside. The London Plane is located in Occidental Square which is one of my favorite spots to takes photos in the city!

Casco Antiguo is probably my favorite happy hour spot in Pioneer Square. Don’t let the plain store front fool you, Casco Antiguo has this amazing mural in the back patio and the food is AMAZING! I first stopped by this restaurant earlier this year before going to watch a friend’s play. You can also access the back patio and see the mural by walking through the alleyway between S Washington Street and Yesler Way.

I highly recommend stopping by Casco Antiguo to eat and also take a photo of their amazing mural!

Built in 1889, the Cadillac Hotel has survived over a century in Pioneer Square.
