How I heard of this place: I hadn’t ever heard of the place. Rather, was hungry on the (long, scenic) way from Yakima to Seattle and found this place on Hwy 410.
Type of cuisine: The place is actually a retail store, selling snowboarding and other outdoor equipment. The have tacked on an ice cream, shake and espresso shop, including fresh sandwiches and salads for passer by.
Ambiance: Very much what one might expect from one of three small shops on an almost deserted, scenic road between Yakima and Ellensburg. One side of the shop has a couch and coffee table in the old rustic, log-cabin-esque house. White boards offer menu options, at a counter over the register and ice cream window. To the right side of the bar one finds snowboards, snow hats, sweaters and jackets, among other outdoor paraphernalia.
What I ordered: We were making a quick stop for a snack, to stretch our legs and take a few photos (of a line of mailboxes, presumably all the mailboxes for everyone in town) before heading somewhere for lunch. I ordered a Snickers-Chocolate shake ($5) to go.
What I loved: I loved that the shakes were all the same offerings as ice cream flavors (just seven to choose from) and that there were chunks of Snickers in the thick, cold shake.
Why I loved it: It was pretty funny to ask the guy behind the counter how his first day of summer is going and have him respond with, “It’s going alright. I’m working through this hangover.” Very friendly and open, honest with a casual vibe.
Cost: Average for sandwiches, espresso beverages and a large shake (including excess).
