Some of the My Snohomish Wedding caterers are actually also restaurants right here in town. So, if you are looking for a killer brunch the morning after or local spot for a great meal, here are some of our favorites.
The Cabbage Patch: The Cabbage Patch began serving Snohomish residents on June 15, 1975 and quickly became one of the most popular dining experiences in the valley; its antiques and home-like atmosphere embodying the celebrated Snohomish spirit. The house, dating back to 1905, has also been a residence, a boarding house and an antique store containing Native American artifacts. The restaurant offers delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner choices in a turn-of-the-century atmosphere.
Collector's Choice Restaurant: For years, Collector's Choice Restaurant has been one of Snohomish's favorite spot to gather with friends and family and enjoy a delicious meal. Whether you're craving a hearty breakfast, a fresh lunch, a savory dinner, or a homemade dessert they have everything you're looking for. And with a large deck overlooking the Pilchuck River, it's one of Snohomish's favorite places to enjoy a cocktail in the sun.
Trails End Taphouse & Restaurant: Trails End first opened its doors in March 2011 as Snohomish Beer & Wine, a small bottle shop dedicated to supplying the wedding industry with beer and wine as well as satisfying the craft beer needs of Snohomish locals. However, their popularity grew and now they are a full-service restaurant as well as the spot to find some usual beers & ciders in their coolers. Our recommendation is try the Pineapple Cider and definitely get the Pork Chop with Yukon Gold mashed potatoes.
Snohomish Pie Company: Not a restaurant but still worth a visit, especially if you have a sweet tooth. Snohomish Pie Company started in Snohomish, WA in 1996 and has been baking delicious, hand made pies from scratch ever since. If you're not in the mood for a full pie, then opt to get a sandwich or we're told they make a "Pie Milkshake" that is pretty special!
Other Worthy Mentions:
Thai Naan: Yummy Thai cuisine.
Andy’s Fish House: The best clam chowder!
Snohomish Bakery: Be sure to get there early to get the best selection.
Top It Yogurt Shoppe: Lots of frozen yogurt flavors and toppings.
Fred’s Rivertown Alehouse: Yummy Asian nachos!

Wineries & Breweries
Haywire Brewing Company: Located in one of our fabulous Snohomish venues, Dairyland, Haywire Brewing Company is also a member of the Snohomish Wedding Guild. The folks at Haywire really do get the "wedding business" as well as the beer business and have supplied their award-winning craft beverages to several Snohomish weddings. Their tasting room is also a great spot for a casual rehearsal dinner. They don't have food but you are allowed to bring your own in, including a food truck! While you're there, be sure to ask about the Snohomish Ale Trail - a self-guided beer-lovers adventure of all of the Snohomish craft breweries.
