The supermarket(QFC) at the corner of N 45th Street and Wallingford Avenue is pretty much the center of the neighborhood. Walking in either direction, east or west from the QFC you will find all kinds of neighborhood shops, restaurants, sports bars, wine bars, and almost anything else you might be looking for including the original Dick's Drive-In. Across the way from the QFC you will find Wallingford Center (was once the Interlake Elementary School, now turned into shops and apartments).
