There’s a new shop in town – to be more precise , a sandwich shop located in downtown Snoqualmie. Hidden in the back of the small Snoqualmie Market on Railroad Ave lies Wicked Wiches Sandwich Shop.
The owners don’t hail from the Snoqualmie Valley, rather from nearby Kent. They said they stumbled upon the available retail space on Craigslist – made the drive, checked out Snoqualmie, fell in love with the feel of the town and decided to give it a go.
Owner Angela Johnstonbaugh said she likes to feed people – and after years of hosting family and friends and being told she should sell her food, she decided to give it a go.
Wicked Wiches Sandwich Shop is a deli style sandwich joint. They do have sub rolls, but mostly it’s about the sandwiches. They also do soup and salads, as well as catering and DELIVERY within five miles.
Wicked Wiches is a true family business. Angela owns the place with her brother and both of their spouses can often be found behind the counter, putting together made-to-order sandwiches.
They opened up shop on March 18th and said business has been pretty good so far. Weekends can get a bit tricky because they tend to get a lot of customers who are riding the train at the Snoqualmie Depot. Angela said they have to make sandwiches fast for train riding customers – but they’re adjusting and quickly figuring it out.
Prices seem very reasonable – and I gave their sandwich the growing-and-always-hungry, 16-year old son taste test. And let’s just say in between bites (and possibly while chewing) he described his pastrami and swiss on marbled rye bread with lots of veggies by saying, “This is so good, Mom.”
Wicked Wiches doesn’t have a website yet, but they do have an active Facebook page where they offer daily specials, including a new one for local businesses called “FREE Lunch Friday” where they will deliver and provide a free lunch to feed approximately 10 people. All businesses have to do is enter their name and address in the comment section of the FREE Lunch Friday thread each week.
So stop by and check them out at 8030 Railroad Ave in downtown Snoqualmie – or call for delivery. They’re open 10AM – 6:30PM and their phone number is (253) 653-8763.
Good Luck Wicked Wiches!
