Step Up Your Lunch Game in Bellevue

A prime spot for dining, Downtown Bellevue offers a variety of places that provide a break during the workday hustle and bustle. Instead of scouring the city for a place, take a look at some of our favorite choices for quick and memorable lunches to get you through the day. 

Lunchbox Laboratory

Serving up a collection of hand-pressed patties, out-of-this-world appetizers and delicious fries, Lunchbox Laboratory is your one-stop lunch spot that will fill you up for the rest of the day. Grab a classic burger, fries and shake combo to help keep your energy up.


Monsoon Bellevue

An elegant establishment serving authentic Vietnamese food with fresh Pacific Northwest ingredients, Monsoon Bellevue never disappoints when it comes to the dishes they serve. Seat yourself in the restaurant for a quick lunch break and discover their delicious weekday lunch menu offering staple plates like Catfish Claypot, Pho soup and drunken chicken.


Bake's Place Bar & Bistro

Bake’s Place is casual, laid back and a fun lunch spot to experience a new atmosphere. When lunchtime rolls around, invite everyone out and taste seasonal menu, including chipotle chicken tacos and vegetable coconut Thai curry. Got some time for dessert? We recommend the molten chocolate toffee cake to finish it all off.


520 Bar & Grill

On the corner of Old Main lies 520 Bar & Grill. After a long morning, we recommend unwinding at the restaurant with delicious dishes like their famous hot wings, stacked lamb burger, or the classic BLT. Stop by on your next lunch break and discover why this is a local favorite.


Carmines's Bellevue

If you’re looking for an elegant lunch, Carmine’s is for you. They bring a rustic, timeless interior with high-quality service food and ambiance. Nestled against Bellevue Downtown Park, it’s a perfect place to stop and escape from the urbanized way of life. Their lunch menu consists of delightful servings of Antipasti, risotto and pasta.


Wild Ginger

The food at Wild Ginger spans the eastern Pacific Rim from China to Indonesia and Malaysia to Vietnam. Located within the Bellevue Collection, it is the prime spot for lunch. While lunch breaks are usually short, the experience you have at Wild Ginger will carry you through the day with their unique range of flavors. Try dishes like Nam’s lamb chops, Mongolian noodles, seven element soup and more. Wish flavors so good, you may become a lunchtime regular here!
