It would be best to purchase your groceries as you pass through Monroe at Fred Meyer or Safeway (if you’re coming from the east side, stop at Safeway in Leavenworth). Once at your cabin, the nearest grocery store is the Family Grocer in Gold Bar which has an excellent selection but at higher prices.
There are many locally owned dining options in Sky Valley. Here are our favorites, starting in Sultan and heading west:
TIMBER MONSTER BREWING COMPANY– local brewery, coffee roaster, and family friendly pub with unique dining options.
GALAXY CHOCOLATES– unique hand made chocolates and confections that make excellent gifts and special treats for your trip!
SAHARA PIZZA-like the name says, they have pizza, but try the grinders! They’re amazing.
SULTAN BAKERY- the homemade bread is what makes their sandwiches sooo good. Lines are crazy, call ahead for to-go orders.
VICK’S BURGER SHACK- classic small town burger stand with some outdoor seating.
BUBBA’S ROADHOUSE- authentic local roadhouse- come for the ambiance, stay for the fun! Live music sometimes, all ages until about 9 pm.
STARTUP TERIYAKI & WOK (Startup Grocery)- seriously awesome teriyaki!
