Green Lake has a new cafe style walk up window. It’s called The Snack Shack and it is part of Shelter Lounge Green Lake. The window opened this week at the southern side of the Shelter Lounge (near the Starbucks).

Their Facebook post announced the opening August 10th:
“We are really proud to introduce Snack Shack to the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle!
Proudly serving @caffevita coffee & espresso!
We have a full lineup of Seattle SuperSonics themed sandwiches, canned beer, wine & cocktails! Locally sourced honey, mustards, chocolates, & hot sauces!
Our version of that sweet, creamy, frozen, orange drink that you remember as a kid…you might remember it as some that rhymes with Smorange Shmulius ???? We call ours the Slick Squeeze – made with fresh squeezed orange juice and blended to order!
Fresh salads, charcuterie, protein kits and other grab and go snacks!
Come see us right next door to our @shelterlounge Green Lake location! Follow us for updates and rotating menu features!”

When Shelter Lounge opened back in 2015 the owners told Seattle Greenlaker that the area where the Snack Shack stands now was slated to be an ice cream window. That move was intended to be a sweet homage to the former building, a Baskin and Robbins. While that never happened, The Snack Shack seems to be the prefect solution to our current COVID-19 way of life. A safe, walk up window where food can be taken to be enjoyed at home or at the park.

In a time when few restaurants are opening, sadly quite the opposite, we are happy to see a business expanding. Green Lake’s Shelter Lounge had been closed for a few weeks while they worked on this project.

Snack Shack’s hours and full menu will be announced soon. For updates, go to their website.
