Mill Creek Town Center

The Mill Creek Town Center is home to a wide array of local options, primarily ones that you can use to fill your stomach. There are restaurants covering a wide spectrum of cuisines – American, Latin, Mexican, Greek, Asian & more. It’s a truly international experience.

We have sat down to both breakfast (Saw Mill) and pizza (Brooklyn Bros.) but more often than not, we opt for the delectable quick bites and drinks available. Frost is home to a unique and rotating set of gourmet donuts. On our most recent trip they had a banana cream donut with Nilla Wafer topping (I’ve been obsessed with banana cream lately) .

Spotted Cow Coffee Company is also a must stop when we are in the area. That’s not just because they are a local coffee roaster, although that helps. There’s another reason we go, the most amazing gelato you will ever have. The mix of it with some hot espresso or a chai tea latte is perfect. I know, hot and cold, it’s weird. You’ll just have to trust me.

Beyond things to eat and drink, there aren’t really a lot of local shopping options, or shopping options in general for that matter. It is the one thing that is a bit disappointing about the Town Center. It is designed to be walkable like other areas in Snohomish County, but you can’t exactly walk around all day eating at restaurant after restaurant.

That doesn’t mean there is nothing worth shopping though. The Town Center is home to my favorite local pet shop, Paddywack. They have some of the few toys that Miss Everly can’t tear apart (no, the duck pictured did not last). They also offer some locally made options like Wet Nose Dog Treats of Monroe.

Bottom line, if you like trying new local restaurants, the Town Center is for you, otherwise hit up the historic downtown areas of other cities for amazing shopping, drinking, eating, and more.
