This is one of 2 coffee shops that the locals stop at. They always have great service. They are quick to serve but sometimes a customer will stop and visit with the employee which backs up the line. This is part of their great service but I'm typically in a rush when I go through. Prices are good but typical prices for a coffee shop. On a side note, the shop supports the community so that is why I like to support them.

Sticky Fingers Bakery and Cafe

Reviewed By RoadTrippersWA - Bonney Lake, Washington

I do not give many "5" ratings for a restaurant. I will definitely come back to this one.

On a day trip from Western Washington, we were approaching Naches and decided to stop and eat there. There are a few places to choose from - both in town and along U.S. 12. So we found Sticky Fingers Bakery and Cafe, figuring we could at least get a bakery item and be on our way. Glad we chose to sit down and have brunch.
Not a large place, this is a family-run operation, very friendly people, and the food is delicious. The prices are reasonable, as well.
This is not one of those small restaurants where they prepare the results of a Costco run. The food here is freshly prepared and cooked, so you do have to wait a few more minutes for your order.
Well worth the time! The 5-cheese omelet we had was light and fluffy. The sausage patty was wonderful, not overly salty, and they grind their own meat. Homemade biscuit was good, too. You will not leave hungry!
We hung around for a few minutes to talk with the family/staff about their restaurant - genuinely nice people. Oh, and we did buy a couple of bakery items to take on the road.

Bron Yr Aur Brewing Co

Reviewed By SkykomishBob - Olympia, Washington

We've come to expect excellent food from brew pubs, so the fact our taco salad and pizza were good but not great was a modestly disappointing, as much because of my expectations than anything else.

Interesting variety of beers, as one might expect. My wife ordered cider, and the only cider on offer was apricot. When it came it was somewhat sour. Maybe that is common for apricot cider but certainly not what she expected.

The otherwise very pleasant bar and restaurant area inside was freezing, we thought, so we opted for warmth despite area forest fire smokey outside, and we very much enjoyed it. It is a very attractive place, and I can see really enjoying an evening meal out in a warm E. WA evening there.

Stopped by a fruit stand and asked for a good lunch place, Laredo's was his immediate response. Although chicken strips did not appear on the menu, they are great. Big, real meat tenders.

With the change in ownership, we were somewhat skeptical, but wanted to give is a try. The food is still great, and the service is much quicker than before.

Trout Lodge

Reviewed By JABledsoe - Spokane Valley, Washington

We stopped at this roadside lodge for lunch and we very pleased with the service and the food. My wife had the trout dinner and I had the cheese burger. Both were very good. We finished up with the cannot miss berry cobbler and ice cream dessert!

The restaurant is closed on TWTH because business is so slow, so check the day before you stop. We will make it a point to stop on our next trip.

Drift Inn Restaurant

Reviewed By Mayhamfx - Mission, Canada

Stopped in for a late breakfast on a Sunday morning. We had left Packwood without eating due to limited choices. We had seen the Drift Inn with one review, excellent, and decided to try it. The restaurant is attached to an Arco gas station. The inside is decorated in a 50's/60's/route 66 style and interesting to look at. The service was fast and good. The food was good and tasty, I had the chicken fried steak and eggs with gravy. I would recommend eating here no problem.

Van's Tavern

Reviewed By TravelSinceRetired - Vancouver, Washington

Stopped here for lunch on our way from Vancouver (USA) to Pateros, WA ... about a 6 1/2 hour trip via US-12 (the scenic route). We were greeted warmly by Kim who was very pleasant & accommodating. She took very good care of us. My wife had a salad which was fresh & crunchy & very good she said. I went for the Bacon Cheeseburger ... DELICIOUS & HUGE! The burger is served with a 1/2 pound of fries that were really good too. We were also able to watch a Mariners game on their big screen/HD tv during lunch (sadly we lost). Not sure when/if we'll make it back through Naches but when we do, we'll stop here to eat for sure. Great service; great food; reasonable prices. AKA: Vans 1885 Bar & Grill
