This is one of the brick-and-mortar versions of the (locally) famous silver food truck, located inside the Seattle Center Armory. It’s the perfect spot to eat dinner after playing hard at the Children’s Museum downstairs, or enjoying your favorite festival at Seattle Center (I personally enjoy BrickCon most). The food is always yummy, and they have food that kids like me really enjoy, like waffles or grilled cheese. The only thing missing from their kids menu were any sort of vegetables, but I suppose that can be forgiven.
My mom ordered the cornmeal waffle for me & the grilled cheese for herself. The waffle didn’t taste anything like cornmeal. The whipped cream was obviously freshly made, and they put strawberries, blackberries, and apple slices on top. It was soooo delicious that I couldn’t even save room to try mom’s grilled cheese!
Restaurant: Compass Cafe Cuisine: American/Sandwiches/Deli Visit Date: December 31st, 2015 Location: Seattle, WA Address: 860 Terry Ave N (inside MOHAI) Price of Kids Meal: $8.95 (actually, this was the price of the bowl of Mac & Cheese I stole from my mom. Not sure what the actual “kids meal” costs.) Child Friendliness Factors: -Changing Table in restroom: Not in the restroom closest to the cafe, but in the museum restrooms. -Child hand washing made convenient: No. All they have is those Dyson AirBlade dryers which don’t work on tiny hands and are kinda scary. -Highchairs available: Multiple, and they were clean & in good repair. -Lidded cups & straws available: Straws, but no lids. -Child-friendly food/servings on menu: Yes, everything was a la carte, which is perfect for tiny tummies, and you could see everything through the glass, which makes it easy for picky eaters to find something that looks good to them. -Welcoming touches for children: Nothing special, but the attached museum is crazy-friendly for kids! Additional Comments:
-Wine & beer available
-Don’t have to be a museum visitor to eat here
-Outdoor patio available on warm days
-No table service/counter service only
On a recent trip to the Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) I got hungry, so we took a break to eat at their cafe, which was surprisingly tasty. I would actually eat here even if I wasn’t visiting the museum. I ordered the Asian Vermicelli, which turned out to be too salty for my taste, but my parents ate it in like 3 seconds, so I guess they like salt more than I do. I ended up eating my mom’s Radiatore and Cheese which was so super yummy. Radiatore is a noodle shape that is very easy for little fingers to pick up, and the cheese sauce was made with Beecher’s Flagship & Tilamook Cheddar, which might be my 2 favorite cheeses in the universe.
On a recent trip to Olympia, WA, I had my first taste of Nitro Coffee at Olympia Coffee Roasting Company. Yum! On my approach to the building, I saw this gem across the street:I was in awe of the detail all over the building. It is currently home to Ramblin Jack’s Restaurant, but it’s obvious that this was not the original tenant of the building. This ornate facade is an unusual sight in Washington.
It took a bit of searching online, but I was able to find out that it was originally built as the Olympia Motors Building, an automotive dealership, in 1923. Here is the description from the Olympia Historical Society website:
The Olympia Motors Building is a flamboyant celebration of America’s love affair with the automobile. Built in 1923 and designed by local architect Joseph Wohleb, the ornate Gothic terra cotta reliefs at the roofline create a sort of cathedral to the automotive industry. The building was originally a Ford dealership acquired by Leon Titus (see Titus House); later on it was a Chevrolet dealership, and now houses a popular restaurant at the edge of downtown Olympia. The dealership was located on the 4th Avenue corridor, at the time part of Route 99 that was the main north-south thoroughfare for Washington State and the west coast.
They also had this photograph of the building from 1942:
Even in black & white you can tell how glorious 520 4th Ave E must have been.
In 1889, the city of Seattle burned to the ground. When they rebuilt, they decided to take advantage of the situation and move the “street level” up one floor. The result was a basement level in the downtown area of the city, complete with sidewalks! To allow light into these underground areas, the street level sidewalks were imbedded with glass chunks, tapered at one end to maximize light transfer. Brilliant! They’re called prism lights, and Seattle is not the only city to put them to use. I hear that the purple color is a result of the aging for the manganese that was added to the glass as a stabilizer. These prism lights also look amazing when the “sidewalk vault” underneath is lit at night, so the purple glass glows.
I found this fun 1880’s flyer online about the Brown Brothers Manufacturing Company, which may well have been the producers of the prism lights, but if they were, that means they were shipped all the way from Chicago! Perhaps they were made by one of the other prism glass companies I found listed here.
Wherever they came from, these beautiful and ingenious panels are a treasured part of Seattle’s personality, and an interesting part of its history. ∞
Restaurant: Tipsy Cow Burger Bar Cuisine: Burgers Visit Date: November 9th, 2015 Location: Redmond, WA Address: 16345 Cleveland Street Price of Kids Meal: No children’s menu Child Friendliness Factors: -Changing Table in restroom: Yes -Child hand washing made convenient: Not really. -Highchairs available: Yes. -Child-friendly food/servings on menu: No. All menu items are adult-sized. -Welcoming touches for children: Crayons offered. Stuffed cows available for purchase. Additional Comments:
-No outdoor seating.
-Purposefully loud/crowded ambiance. Great for people watching, but not a great spot for friends with sensory issues.
My mom and I stopped by the Tipsy Cow Burger Bar on a whim one day after shopping at the Redmond Value Village. I wasn’t very hungry, so I just split a burger & fries with my mom. It worked out well because they didn’t have a kids menu, and the menu items weren’t very appealing to a toddler like me. I liked my mom’s burger, and she really liked it (I don’t think she wanted to share!) The fries, however, were not worth sharing. Neither one of us ate anything off of the greasy pile, and we didn’t take any with us either. The waitstaff was all super friendly, which I always appreciate. Even the cooks waved at me!
This is an intriguing bit of history, located just above the main drag through Snohomish, WA. I shall tell you the story as I understand it, but I readily admit that I am a bit foggy on the details.
In the late 1800’s, one of Seattle’s pioneering families, John & Lydia Low, were buried in this cemetery, along with many other pioneers of the area. The last burial was early in the 1900’s, and then the cemetery became overgrown and somewhat forgotten. In the 1940’s, the state cut a road right through the center, relocating all of the bodies they came across to nearby Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) Cemetery, as well as the tombstones…not necessarily matched together, mind you. Here you can see cemetery in the foreground & background with the road running through the center.
Since then, a senior center and parking lot have been built on top of sections of the graveyard, and remaining tombstones have been moved to the “Fake cemetery” up on the hill as a memorial to those buried nearby. Some of them are truly stunning headstones for whom I’m sure were stunning people (after all, this place was quite wild when they showed up!)
Also on this corner of the cemetery is Kikendall cabin, which was moved here in the mid 1960’s, I think, from it’s original home nearby. When I was trying to find out for sure, I found this article from 1964 published in the now defunct Monroe Monitor newspaper. The cabin boasts an amazing fireplace/chimney that you can see in the photo above. Here is the cabin from another angle so readers can see the impressive (yet unintended) collection of moss on the roof:
There used to be a Kikendall Cabin Historical Society, and on their website they wrote about the history of the family and the cabin. The following is a snippet:
Kikendall built the Kikendall log cabin in 1875 on a 120 acre Pilchuck River homestead, that was purchased for $1.50 an acre. The log cabin was located first north of Snohomish between the Snohomish-Machias Road, on the banks of the Pilchuck River. This cabin was once one of the pioneer landmarks of the area with its big stone fireplace, huge chinked logs and spacious porches. The first floor of the original cabin was just one room and extended to the back wall of the parlor. The cabin was twenty feet wide and sixteen feet deep. The Kikendall family moved into their new home in October of 1875. The kitchen area was added on the back about twenty years later (about 1895) increasing the depth to twenty -five feet. The second floor was used for sleeping quarters. When the cabin was eventually wired for electricity, the light bulb was located over the organ not only for light but to help keep the organ warm and dry during the winter months.
I must say that I was amazed at the lack of signage in this area. A person just pulls into the shopping center parking lot & walks to this plot in the corner to see a slice of history. I had to come home and Google it before I could find out what it was. While I was Google-ing, I found this great Seattle Times article here that explains a lot about why the cemetery has been rearranged so much over the years. Hopefully there will not be any further development on this plot of land, but unfortunately for the deceased, this is a very rapidly growing area and the demand for land keeps rising, so I won’t get my hopes too high.
Restaurant: Watershed Cafe Cuisine: American Visit Date: October 11th, 2015 Location: Leavenworth, WA Address: 221 8th Street Price of Kids Meal: N/A Child Friendliness Factors: -Changing Table in restroom: No. It was a very awkward experience. -Child hand washing made convenient: No. This was also a very awkward experience. -Highchairs available: Yes. -Drinks: I used my tippy cup from home, so I’m not sure what they would have offered me. -Child-friendly food/servings on menu: No children’s menu, but the chef was very accommodating. -Welcoming touches for children: None to speak of. Additional Comments:
-Parking in downtown Leavenworth can be tricky.
-Patio seating available in good weather.
We ate brunch here on a beautiful mountain weekend, and it was so delicious! At the request of my parents, the chef made me a plate of sliced avocados, scrambled eggs, and sliced oranges. Our waitress was so kind and patient with me and the mess I kept making. We got to sit on the patio and watch all of the dogs walk by, and then one of them sat down at the table next to us! The waitress brought him a bowl of water, which I thought was really sweet. My parents loved their meals too. They both ordered sliders, and instead of fries, which is what most restaurants bring with anything that looks burger-isa, this place served them with dilly beans…which I love! Mark this one in the record books, folks: a restaurant that serves VEGGIES with their burgers! Wow!
Located on the main drag of Duvall, WA (15807 Main Street), this cute little tavern is proud of its roots and of its food! According to their tag line, they have been “World Famous Since 1934!” I’m not sure if they’re world famous even today, but they have been in continuos operation since 1934, and they may be locally famous, depending on who you ask. Here is what they claim on the menu:
In 1934, the year after prohibition, The Duvall Tavern was founded. According to the Duvall Historical Society, The Duvall Tavern is the oldest operating business in town. The south parking lot used to be the ramp to the old Stewart Street Bridge across the Snoqualmie River to Woodinville.
In 1963, The Duvall Tavern was bought and sold three times in two days. It was won in a poker game by a well-known gambler in the valley, who then sold it to another gambler to pay off his gambling debt. That person then sold it to another person who wanted to be in the tavern business. The Duvall Tavern is now locally owned and operated by The Crimson Group Inc. Whether you are a Hippie, Hobo, Hillbilly, Democrat or Republican we hope you enjoy your Duvall Tavern experience and come back soon.
The interior itself isn’t spectacularly historical due to the complete renovation last year, but it is beautiful & clean. Before you leave, be sure to use the restroom because they have pieces of the old bar hanging on the wall, with all of the signatures from previous patrons.
It really was quite a renovation, too! Here is a “before” photo I found from the old MLS listing (listed for $250,000, BTW), from the days when Linda Newkirk owned it. She passed away in 1999, which I’m assuming was the catalyst for the sale. When researching the history of this place, I found mention of this tavern on p. 101 of “Thin White Female in No Acute Distress: A Memoir” by Nancy Anne Nicholson. I also found an interesting article here with some historical tidbits.
“My father, Alvin Myers, built two buildings on the west side of Main Street in the early ’30s before the end of prohibition. He leased the land,” said Howard Myers.
“The first building was his restaurant, Myers Cafe, built on what was then the corner where the bridge originally stood. When prohibition was repealed, beer was served in that building. My father wanted to enlarge the space, so he moved that building off the corner to the backside of the lot and used it for living quarters. He then put up a larger second building in front and reopened it as Myers Cafe and Tavern. He had two pinball machines, a slot machine, and a nickelodeon. He served beer, wine, and light lunches.
“There was a barbershop next to the tavern, then Fern Collette’s Tavern with a boarding house alongside. In the ’20s, the boarding house was a meat market owned by the Wallaces.
“In 1946, I ran the place. The farmers would come in during the hay season when it was hot, especially on Saturdays, and have a party.
“In 1947, my father sold it to the Herb and Marie Phillips. After the Phillips sold it to John and Verna Watson, they put up the stones across the front,” Myers added.
Two others owned it before Newkirk became an owner.
Ray Burhen remembers the early days when it was known as a “pleasant watering hole.”
“It was a watering hole for the young men in the valley after we finished our barn chores. We’d go there and get juiced and build our bravery up before going to the dances at the different dance halls in the late ’40s and ’50s,” said Ward Roney, who quit drinking many years ago, but remembers all the good times with many other old-timers.
“Ward was known as one of the only men who could handle the hot horseradish the tavern served. He ate it by the spoonful,” said Pink Marty.
The new menu has a lot of house made items, and the tap list highlights a lot of local breweries.
Located in an industrial neighborhood of Bellingham, WA, this unassuming brick building holds gobs of history in its brick walls. According to Wikipedia, it was built in 1858 as T.G. Richards & Company Store and Warehouse, with John Alexander being in charge of construction. The original store kept getting broken into, so to secure their inventory, the owners decided to build a 2-story brick building, which would be much more secure.
After the Fraser River gold rush ends, Richards and Hyatt no longer have use for the building; they want to return to California. Hyatt sells his interests to Richards. In April 1863, a storm damages the county courthouse up the street. Whatcom County offers Richards $2,000 as payment for the building and he takes the money, even though he spent $8,000 to construct it.
On April 17, 1903, the Whatcom County board of commissioners sells the lot and the old brick courthouse to the James B. Steadman post No. 24 Grand Army of the Republic Department of Washington and Alaska for $800. The James B. Steadman post No. 24 occupies the building until 1922, when Jasper Marion Riddle buys it for $1. Riddle is a local road and sidewalk construction contractor.
Wow! From $8,000 to $1 in 64 years. Another 64 and the value has definitely risen well past it’s original price. Since the bricks had to be shipped from Philadelphia, around South America (no Panama canal yet), I wonder what it would cost today? It gives a bit more perspective on my last trip to Lowes, where I saw pallets of bricks for sale for pennies each.
You can visit this treasure yourself at 1308 E St., Bellingham, WA, or even rent it out for your next event!
While visiting the Kirkland Art Center the other day, I couldn’t help but notice the all of the engraved bricks surrounding the building. They were lining the sidewalk in front of the historic building, and they create a lovely courtyard on the building’s side. I looked around for an indication of what they were for, but to no avail. I asked the director what they were for, and she said they were from a fundraising program a few years ago, but she was a bit vague on the details. It appears many of them were purchased as a memorial for a loved one, so in honor of them, I am transcribing their names here. I am leaving out the businesses named on bricks, as well as the ones that were illegible for various reasons.
Note: As I was transcribing these, I found one that said “E.A.F.A. 10 Years,” which I am assuming refers to the Eastside Association of Fine Arts, which was founded in 1975 & still in existence today. That would make these bricks more than just “a few years” old!

There was also a nice bench with a memorial plaque on it:
I hope that these bricks will keep the memories of these loved ones alive!
