Here’s another photo essay from David Carlos profiling interesting places nearby.
As a kid, going to Spud Fish & Chips at Seattle’s Green Lake was a special event for me. Even more special than dressing up to go to Sears.
So it was with a little sadness that I visited Spud Green Lake for the last time. Saturday is its last day before the 1959 building is demolished for a 59-unit apartment complex.
Spud will return at the same spot once the new building is done, however.
I asked an employee what the staff will do until then. She said, “We’ll take a year-long vacation!”
One last time, I bit into a fresh, crunchy fillet. And the beefy brown fries didn’t disappoint. I’ll be back in a year, Spud Greenlake. It won’t be the same atmosphere, but it will have the same…sole.
Other Spud locations: Edmonds, Kirkland, and Alki in West Seattle.
