The city that was founded in 1859, Olympia is best known as the capital of Washington state. It's not one of the first Washington cities that come to mind when you think of a "foodie town", but there are some hidden restaurant gems lurking in plain sight. Just ask any local where their favorite place is to eat in town and one of these eateries will likely be on their list.

Sure, the majority of demographics of folks living in Olympia love their seafood and Mexican food, but they also crave Italian and the variety of Asian meals.

If you're not getting yummy fair food at Lake Fair in July, then any one of these 10 restaurants are a must-try on your next visit to Washington state's beautiful capitol city!
