The Burton Coffee Stand
Awesome coffee and people. This review says it all - and it's right across the street from The Burton Inn! "When I first came here I did not have high expectations. Upon purchasing my first coffee I was more than impressed. I was happy beyond words. This was a coffee stand that made superb coffee. Not only that but on Wednesdays and Sundays you can find fabulous scones, This is also a great place to sit and chat; interact with humans. People actually say hello, talk, socialize. You won't find people looking down at their laptops or mobiles. You are treated like a person:-)"

George & Linda Kirkish are the heart of Palouse Winery. After running an airline and a contracting business, raising four children and living life to the fullest on Vashon Island, George & Linda decided that the time had come to take their drive for excellence and art into a new direction.
In the fall of 2003, they embarked on a new journey by buying half a ton of Cab Franc grapes from the Portteus Vineyard, high on the hillside above the Yakima Valley in Rattlesnake Hills. That first small batch ignited a passion for wine making, and determined the course of their future.
With expert guidance & regular classes at UC Davis’s oenology program, they grew their expertise, along with their grape purchases, until in early 2005 Palouse expanded into the present day location on Vashon Island’s north end. Here they currently produce 1,400 cases of handcrafted wine a year, each vintage more stunning than the last.

TASTING ROOM IS OPEN THURSDAY – SUNDAY 12 to 5pm
Seattle Distilling shows you don't need a huge space to create amazing spirits.Paco Joyce, VP and Master Distiller is a master in the fine art of distilling. Well worth a visit to check out the the steampunkish copper and steel stills, pipes and gauges; and getting a feel for what goes into making a great bottle of whiskey, vodka or gin.Tour, then taste the products - gin, vodka, strawberry-infused vodka, Idle Time whiskey and the Coffee Liqueur unlike any mass-produced you can buy at the liquor store. The flavors are carefully melded and include local lavender and juniper berries..Perhaps the most interesting fact to take away from the visit is understanding the symbiotic relationship between the distillery and the island community. The remaining mash left from the grain used for the base alcohol is fed to island livestock on nearby farms. The farms, in turn, provide some of the other ingredients needed, or the farmers apply their talents, like welding, to keep the stills and machinery running. Although it is all local and small, the Seattle Distilling Company is making a name for itself, winning Best of the Northwest from Evening Magazine, among other prestigious awards.Well worth the visit!
