What To Eat & Drink In Seattle During Pride Month

Rainbow treats, Pride beer releases, and more to support the LGBTQ+ community this month and beyond.

There are many ways to celebrate Pride in Seattle. You could attend a mimosa-loaded drag brunch, or lose your voice singing (OK, screaming) along to Kim Petras at Queer/Bar’s Queer/Pride Festival. Another way is to eat and drink something delicious from one of the following spots offering Pride specials throughout the month. Whether you’re looking to grab a tallboy of beer or an entire rainbow layer cake, every dessert and beverage on this guide comes from a Queer-owned business and/or goes toward a charitable organization that supports the LGBTQ+ community.

For even more ideas, check out Intentionalist’s list of Seattle’s LGBTQ+ owned businesses, and consider donating to local organizations like Lambert House, Gay City, Equal Rights Washington, and national organizations like The Okra Project, The Transgender Law Center, G.L.I.T.S., and the Human Rights Campaign—not just this month, but always.

What To Eat

Pride Donut & Trans Pride Donut at Dough Joy

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

This donut shop is 100% vegan and 100% perfect for supporting the LGBTQ+ community every day, let alone this month—and we’re not just saying that because their glitter-dusted Pride donut is a year-long mainstay. Throughout June, Dough Joy is also serving a pink, blue, and white donut in celebration of Trans Pride.

White Chocolate Yuzu Rainbow Cookie at Marination & Super Six 

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

We love these two Hawaiian restaurants for things like kalua pig-loaded french fries and salty spam musubi. But their Pride special has nothing to do with pork—Marination and Super Six are baking striped rainbow cookies brushed with a yuzu-infused white chocolate glaze ($4). A dollar from each cookie benefits Camp Ten Trees, an organization that sets up summer camp programs for Queer youth. 

The Gay Cupcake at Cupcake Royale

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

Sprinkles objectively make cake taste better—any other argument is wrong. And The Gay cupcake from Cupcake Royale is really no exception. In addition to this confetti-speckled yearly special, you can also order Pride “Cocobunnies” cupcakes topped with colorful tinted coconut shreds as well as mini rainbow-dyed “Gaybies.” 

Pride Cone at Molly Moon’s 

Eating a quadruple-scoop ice cream cone is an exceptional June activity, especially if it’s Molly Moon’s Pride Cone. This tall treat features the scoop shop’s four colorful seasonal flavors of strawberry matcha, blackberry, vegan chocolate-covered strawberry, and citrus sorbet. Proceeds from this cone, all of the seasonal flavors, and their Pride merch will benefit Lavender Rights Project, GenPride, & Seattle's LGBTQ+ Center.

Rainbow Love Cupcakes at Trophy Cupcakes 

This cupcake bakery with multiple locations scattered throughout the city serves very colorful rainbow-decorated cakes 365 days a year. And for the entire month of June, 10% of proceeds from their Rainbow Love cupcakes will go directly to Seattle’s PrideFest.

Rainbow Cheesecake at A La Mode Pies 

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

You’ll find whole pies and slices at A La Mode in flavors ranging from Oreo cream to crumb-topped apple. Once a year for Pride, they also sell tie-dye (and glittered) rainbow cheesecakes. Order whole cheesecakes online, or grab a slice at their Phinney Ridge, West Seattle, or Ballard locations.

Vanilla Cream Chocolates at Flight Wine & Chocolate

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

Flight is one of our happy places, and drinking great PNW-sourced wine while eating phenomenal bon bons has a little something to do with it. Starting on Saturday, June 11, they’ll have vanilla cream-filled chocolates decorated with a rainbow pattern. Stock up for your Pride parties while simultaneously supporting an LGBTQ+-owned business.

Rainbow Cake at The Flora Bakehouse & Cafe Flora

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

While you could feasibly separate cake batter into six different bowls for each color of the rainbow, it’s much easier to save time and just preorder a rainbow layer cake from The Flora Bakehouse and/or Cafe Flora. If you’d rather swing by for a pastry on the go, they’re also selling rainbow cake cups and rainbow unicorn horns all month. You’ll be keeping your kitchen clean, and supporting a Queer-owned business in the process—not to mention a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Trans Justice Funding Project

What To Drink

Pints at Stoup Brewing 

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

This fantastic brewery with locations in Ballard and Kenmore is supporting an LGBTQ+ organization every Wednesday in June by donating $1 from every pint sold—past organizations so far have been Lavender Rights Project and the GSBA Scholarship Fund. And if you’re low on Pride merch, they’re also selling tank tops that read “Stoup” in rainbow font.

Cake Topper Brut IPA at Elysian Brewing

Cake Topper's one of our favorite brut IPAs, brewed with guava, vanilla, and lactose—and Elysian is serving them at their Pride beer garden on June 25th. Portions of the proceeds from each sold that day will go directly to Seattle Pride.

Ripe With Pride Pale at Flying Lion Brewing 

This Columbia City-based brewery is serving a peachy pale for Pride, as well as selling a limited edition t-shirt. All proceeds from the shirts as well as $1 from each pint will be donated to the Gender Justice League.

Queer Beer IPA at Future Primitive Brewing

Future Primitive, a White Center brewery, is keeping it local—proceeds from purchases of their Queer Beer IPA benefit White Center Pride. Note that the neighborhood’s Pride festivities are on Saturday, June 11th, not the last weekend of June like Seattle’s PrideFest.

Pride Kolsch at Fremont Brewing Company 

Fremont’s annual Pride Kolsch is here. Proceeds from this floral ale will benefit the Pride Foundation.

Forward Red Blend at Footprint Wine Tap 

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

We see a lot (like, a lot) of Pride beer specials in Seattle, but if you’re more of a wine person, you could grab a glass or bottle of Footprint Wine Tap’s “Forward” red blend. Proceeds will go to the LGBTQ+ community.

We Say Gay Cocktail at Harry’s Beach House 

*LGBTQ+ Owned Business

Mint simple syrup, orgeat, fresh lemon juice, and gin combine to make this sweet-tart cocktail from Harry’s Beach House in West Seattle. A dollar from each “We Say Gay” drink will benefit The Trevor Project.

Lambert Sour at Mioposto Pizzeria 

On the subject of cocktails, every location of Mioposto Pizzeria is also serving a Pride drink. Their frothy Lambert Sour features gin, creme de violette, Chambord, Peychaud’s bitters, lime, and egg white foam. It’d pair stupendously with a blistered pizza, but what’s even better is that 100% of proceeds will benefit Lambert House.

Rainbow Disco Ball at Ridgewood Bottle & Tap

We love Ridgewood Bottle & Tap in Phinney Ridge for many things—their Kool Aid-inspired blue raspberry prosecco slushie being just one of them. They’re selling rainbow disco ball tumblers, straw and all, and proceeds will go to Lambert House. If you’d like to fill yours with every frozen cocktail in the house, just ask for “The Works.”

B Proud Hazy IPA at Aslan Brewing

Aslan is based in Bellingham with a second location in Fremont, and for the fourth year in a row, their Pride-inspired B Proud Hazy IPA is back. Proceeds from the beer will go toward Northwest Youth Services and their Queer Youth Project.
