Don’t Miss Out On These 10 Delicious Washington Restaurants In The Middle Of Nowhere
There are restaurants you drive by on a regular basis, and then there are those hidden gems that lie on the outskirts of (or far away from) town that are easy to forget about. Sometimes it’s those out-of-the-way eateries that serve the tastiest food.
You won’t find any of these restaurants on any main streets, but somehow that just adds to their appeal.
1. Whidbey Pies Cafe, 765 Wonn Rd., Greenbank
Whidbey Pies Cafe is located at the historic Greenbank Farm. Since it's located on a remote part of the island, sometimes tourists don't even realize it's there. They serve fresh salads, soups and sandwiches to enjoy with their homemade pies.
2. Chaps Coffee, 4235 S Cheney Spokane Rd., Spokane
Chaps might not have the convenience of being in downtown Spokane, but that doesn't stop people from making the trek to enjoy some of the best brunch of their lives. This spot was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives when Guy Fieri visited Spokane and dined there.
3. The Vine, 1072 Oasis Rd., Touchet
The Vine is the onsite restaurant of the Cameo Heights Mansion, an elegant European themed B&B located about 25 minutes from Walla Walla. They serve a delicious prix-fixe menu 5 nights a week, and you don't have to be a guest of the mansion to dine there.
4. Boggan’s Oasis Restaurant, 61376 State Hwy 129, Anatone
Located near the Oregon border, Boggan's Oasis is a place where anglers, campers, and hunters gather for camping, guided fishing trips, and mouthwatering meals. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it's all exceptional.
5. Hilltop Indian Restaurant & Pizza, 1000 Town Ctr NE,
You won't find many places that are experts at both Indian food and pizza, but somehow, Hilltop pulls it off. As the name suggests, it's a bit of a drive from downtown Tacoma, but it's worth it.
6. River View Dining, 618 W Robert Bush Dr., South Bend
Don't think you like oysters? You may reconsider if you try them here. Their BBQ oysters and chowder are amazing.
7. Columbia Inn Restaurant, 698 NE Frontage Rd., Kalama
If you're craving a good old-fashioned American diner experience, pull over in Kalama and give Columbia Inn a try. The service is friendly, the prices are reasonable and the food is great.
8. Huntington’s Steakhouse, 95 Main St., Klickitat
The steak at Huntington’s is so amazing that people have been known to drive all the way from Portland to enjoy it. To reach it, you'll take a drive along the Klickitat River, which makes the experience even better.
9. Maltby Cafe, 8809 Maltby Rd., Snohomish
The Maltby Cafe is a bit of a hidden gem that is well-known for their amazing cinnamon rolls... but they also have a full breakfast and lunch menu that's outstanding.
10. Peyrassol Cafe at Southport, 1083 Lake Washington Blvd N., Renton
Southport is a new mixed-use development on the shores of Lake Washington. Peyrassol Cafe sits hidden among the apartments and construction, and it's a bit out of the way for most. But the food, which is made from scratch, makes it worth the trek.
