"A great mix of residential and commercial on Capitol Hill"

Summit Ave. E. is located on Capitol Hill, 4 blocks west of Broadway. It is about 65% residential, 35% commercial, with the businesses doing a great job of coexisting with the housing. The #14 bus runs down the length of it, coming from downtown Seattle, coming off of E. Olive Way. The return to downtown route is one block west, on Bellevue Ave. E.

At the corner of Summit Ave. E. and E. Olive Way is a large Starbucks, a second hand-furniture store and a second hand clothing store. A few blocks down is a small cafe. Right around E. Mercer, you'll find a small convenience store, a bar, an Italian restaurant, Top Pot doughnuts (with doughnuts made fresh every morning!), and two art galleries. Most of the residences are apartment buildings, with a few converted to condos, and very few single family houses. Street parking is scarce, and some portions of Summit Ave. E. are part of the zoned parking and require a permit. Easy access to Thomas Street Park (one block west) and Tashkent Park (one block east). Also easy access to additional bus lines on Broadway and on E. Olive Way.
