Snohomish County is a perfect pit-stop for visitors looking to get the most out of America’s Pacific north-west. Along with the beautiful scenery of the Cascade Mountains and Puget Sound, old historic buildings, and ample boutique shops, Snohomish County is home to many great restaurants. Here’s our guide to the top ten in the area.
Hidden inside a strip mall, Pho Mimosa is the place to go for excellent curries, flavorful pho, and delicious noodle dishes. The portions are large and full of vibrant spices, especially the fragrant pho (word to the wise: the extra-large size portion of this dish is large enough to feed the whole family). Customize your pho with your favorite meat and veggies, and add extra noodles or meat if you prefer.
Enjoy a freshly baked treat at the Snohomish Pie Company. The Pie Company opened in 1996 and is still baking the same high-quality pies today. The pies are made fresh daily and served on a first-come, first-served basis, so come in early to guarantee a slice of your favorite. Ingredients for the pies are fresh and sourced locally. The apple crumb is a popular choice, but the Pie Company also sells cherry, pecan, key lime, and many other flavors. Stop in for a simple lunch with the Pie Company’s daily lunch special — half a sandwich, a cup of soup, and a slice of pie for $10.25.
Jake’s Café specializes in family-friendly dining experiences. Each meal is home-cooked with tried-and-tested country recipes. Order one of your favorite comfort food dishes inside the pleasant diner, but be sure to arrive early as the small restaurant fills up with locals very quickly. You will be treated to a hot, fresh cup of coffee upon arrival, true to the standard diner tradition.
For the freshest seafood in the area, dine at Andy’s Fish House. Andy’s prepares locally caught fish fried, grilled, or smoked. Have your choice of fish in a Po’ Boy, on fish tacos, as fish and chips, and many more options. The setting is relaxing and open with a large patio overlooking the Snohomish River. Grab a cup of clam chowder and enjoy a peaceful meal here – you won’t be disappointed.

If you’re watching your waistline, substitute a turkey patty, chicken breast, or veggie patty for any burger.
