Mercer Island has seen staggering development on the northern part of the island's commercial district. As a result, restaurants have moved in.

Bennett's Pure Food Bistro is a surefire hit with all-natural and ethically grown and harvested food. It tastes delicious too! Most of the food and wine come from local growers and nearly everything on the menu is certified organic, even the all-natural Coke! They also have options for vegetarians, vegans, and special accommodations to those with allergies to certain foods.

There's also Thai on Mercer for Thai food, as well as Pom Proem Thai on 78th Ave.

Haruko's, Lil' Tokyo Teriyaki, and Yuzen round out the Japanese restaurants. Haruko's is a family run restaurant and offers standard Japanese cuisine. For more modern flare, go to Yuzen in the middle of the Island.

In addition to the above restaurants, there's a variety of small shops including fast food (McDonald's, Qdoba, Subway, Noah's Bagels).

Drink

Sleep

Mercer Island has no hotels or motels to stay at, so if you need to find one, your best bet is to hop on I-90 either into Seattle or Bellevue, as both cities have multiple, varied options for overnight stays, assuming you are not a guest of someone who lives on the Island.
