Seattle Gems: Bakeman's

The Soup Nazi is a someone we all know and love from the days of Seinfeld. The nervousness on Jerry and George's faces as they approach the counter to order, the shout of "No soup for you!" and George's soup being snatched from his hands. Classic comedy. 

Well you can live their hilarious experience right here in Seattle. Bakeman's in Pioneer Square is a cheap, cafeteria style lunch spot where the ordering moves FAST and if you slow down the process they will not be happy. Owner, Jason Wang, shoots options for sides and drinks at you rapid fire once you reach the register and you better believe he will have opinions about your decisions. 

Oh and don't make the mistake of pulling out your credit card. Obviously, they only accept cash. 

Besides the pure joy you feel when you make it through the ordering process ("I am AMAZING. I just successfully ordered a sandwich without being yelled at!") their sandwiches are delicious and dirt cheap! Their bread and butter is definitely the turkey with cranberry, but we are suckers for the meatloaf too. 

Alright, god speed, best of luck, you got this. Now GO GO GO.
