Cabbage Patch Restaurant - 111 Ave. A #2925
This restaurant has been open in an old Victorian-era gabled house for several decades. The house is split up into different levels, plus you can dine in an enclosed porch, on the front veranda, or on a porch out back. The secret is the daily from-scratch pie, which compliments the all-American fare of burgers, fries, and salads.
The Cabbage Patch is also allegedly haunted, so if you hear footsteps on the staircase to the second floor and there’s nobody there… don’t be surprised.
The Avenue A gazebo overlooks cottonwoods that line the scenic Snohomish River. The gazebo was first built in 1976 to celebrate the bicentennial of the United States. It’s recently undergone extensive reconstruction and remodeling, making for a great place to enjoy a lazy ice cream cone or a selfie with a loved one. It’s easy to see why this little gazebo is the pride of old-town Snohomish.
