    Supper bummed to not see Harry’s on Tye even as option as restaurant and or tap room. Supporting mom and pop shops is a huge deal, and they’ve been around for over three years and are killing the game. Just a huge bummer they aren’t even a mention.

  2. Erik Newquist

    Veltons coffee roasting company should be on the list. So I would like to nominate him. Velton is here in the Lowell area in Everett and is magnificent. All the coffee I use at the meadery is from velton. http://www.veltonscoffee.com

      We have been hearing about them recently. Will definitely have to check them out and see about getting them on the list for next year’s awards 😉

  3. Jeanne Bartel

    Collector’s Choice Restaurant in Snohomish should be on the list. I’d like to nominate them for next time.

  4. Katy Cook

    Please add l’Artisan French bakery to your bakery list next year. It is a wonderful bakery. Thank you!

  5. Jan Cleveland

    I would love to see Original Pilot House Coffee in Monroe added to the best coffee house list next year. Hands down the best around (drinks, ambience, personalities) in my opinion!!

    • snocogal

      We love Original Pilot House Coffees, and they are found in the Best Coffee Roaster category 🙂

  6. Pam

    Did I miss M &M Antiques on the list? Favorite !

  7. Susie Allison

    How about Best New Restaurant
    I vote for Capers and Olives and Abbott’s

  8. Rachel

    I dig me some King Charlie’s For a drive in! Hope it gets considered next year. 😊
