Trader Joe's Seattle U District

The most interesting reviews

Love the ice cream selections, always have fresh produce and their bakery items here have great baked goods you won't find anywhere else!!! I suggest the pancake bread loaf and the coffee bean ice cream!!!!

Great place for groceries with very neat shelves and nice staff

Go to grocery shop. They keep the stock full of a varying variety of items

Just a cool store - friendly and helpful staff. The short lines always move fast too.

Love the place but can yyall check the expiration date on the diced onions

I got food poisoning from it last weekend and I purchased it again yesterday 4/5 but when i look at it today it says expiration date 4/2

A good place to go if you're black, and want that feeling of constantly being monitored as if you stole something. Even the black security acts like Samuel L. Jackson in Django. I'll keep going nonetheless, knowing that whatever it is, I pay for it, despite having my bag checked 1 second after paying.

Great staff and samples! Always a good selection and helpful and friendly staff. Seriously, every time. PS if you haven't discovered their frozen croissants, they're magical.

A great TJ location with good selection. Not difficult to find free underground parking

I love trader Joe's so much. The only thing I find annoying about this one is how you get into the parking garage. Outside of that it's amazing. Wonderful staff, friendly and inclusive to everyone, good prices, healthy food (and some sweets), but also actually good tasting. I recommend trying the tomato basil pasta sauce, ice cream sandwich cookies, maple cookies, mango sorbet, orange chicken, chicken fried rice, kung Pao chicken, and chicken chow mein. Those are the best things in the store if you ask me and your life isn't complete until you've had them. There's also lollipops or stickers for kids if they find the hidden stuffed animal in the displays. Sometimes they have coloring sheet contests too. If you couldn't tell it's one of my favorite grocery stores lol

It's always a shockingly good dea - i love Trader Joe'sl! Fast cashiers, too, so lines are decent. The university district store on Roosevelt always has pan handlers out front, but they are mostly harmless. The store has a security guard outside to keep it clean and civil. I usually buy a Real Change newspaper from one of them.

Smaller Trader Joe's in a good location. Has a good selection but it can get really crowded during peak hours.

Trader Joe's is always better to go because of the affordable prices and good quality of its products. They cheese section is so delicious, except israeli feta cheese. Hope they can provide different feta cheese soon! For coffee, their own brands are so much better than Starbucks (over) roasted coffee!

This is my "go-to" Trader Joe's location. I used to shop here while living in the U-District. I now shop here five and a half years later, a couple of times a week, due to being right by my office and bus route home. However, the cleanliness, friendly staff, security, reliable selection, and short lines are fantastic, even though this particular location is one of the smaller locations in the Seattle metro area. The produce is always fresh and in good supply, and the employees are continually restocking and willing to help you if needed.

Typically brilliantly presented wide variety of clever, tasty products. It would be amazing if they branched out internationally like some of their "competitors" have. Of course, there is no real competition for this amazing chain.

Reasonable selection, though the basic fruits like oranges, bananas, and lemons could be fresher

The staff here have always been friendly and helpful! The store is a little small but I can usually find the things I need. Some really good gluten free options, but not much variety of gf food.

It's nice to have a trader Joe's in this location, but it is a very small and limited facility with lots of foot traffic throughout the day.

TRADER JOES is the most classic place around. A taste of California in my book... such as whole foods organic and health food! Brings back rather good times being a vegetarian in middle and High Schoolwhile traveling in tbe 70's.
