We’re beyond honored to have received four “Best of the Plateau” awards as a restaurant, including first for Best American Food and Best Lunch, as well as second for Best Family Restaurant. We want to thank all of our loyal customers and congratulate Katie on her personal “Best of” award with a short feature posted below.
Katie Cunningham “Best of the Plateau” at The Mint.
Katie has been expertly guiding your dining experiences at various Enumclaw establishments for over 13 years — always handy with an honest suggestion and ready to pick up the conversation where it left off whether you last saw her yesterday or a year ago.
The people she interacts with daily are what make this job so special to her. She truly loves her customers and wants to thank each and everyone of you. She says, “my customers are why I do it. They make me laugh and make me happy, they’re the reason I still have fun everyday at work.”
Come around to The Mint during lunch Monday-Thursday and say hi to Katie, pick out one of what she says are “the best burgers in town” (or try the cheeseburger sliders, her personal favorite). If you’re thirsty, Katie’s personally quite fond of The Mint’s large and constantly rotating beer selection, so don’t hesitate to indulge in one of her recommendations or stick with what you know and strike up a conversation with one of the best in the business.
When it comes to eating in Enumclaw, there are many fine choices; however, locals and downtown eaters find themselves often making a decision: Rainier or The Mint?
In case you couldn’t guess,
Kasey Kahne says “I personally prefer The Mint”
— let’s just say we’re happy to stick that one in our back pocket! Thanks Kasey!
In all fairness, he continues: “the Rainier’s great, but The Mint’s my favorite spot for lunch.” They talk about Enumclaw quite a bit as Kasey Kahne weighs in on Enumclaw’s restaurant scene in a broad-ranging interview on Seattle’s 950am-KJR sports radio program, The Furness Show (6/30). (Including, of course, the obligatory “Enumscratch” reference. The interview is fun.)
Ian and Puck caught up with Kahne as he was busy co-hosting (with Russell Wilson) his foundation’s second-annual charity golf tournament — this year benefiting Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Strong Against Cancer initiative.

Take Kasey’s advice and our word for it: “You’ll come for the beer … and be back for the food.”
Five acts of handsome and creative cowboys will be coming the Mint and surrounding venues tomorrow (Saturday, May 30th) — pull out your hats ‘n boots and join us for some good old-fashioned fun. 1 PM – 5 PM.
Stick at one venue to catch all five acts, or follow your favorite performer(s) around to see everything they have to offer. The event is family friendly and below you’ll find more information on the artists, venues, and the Cowboy Gathering in general.
Coming Thursday, April 16th, to the Mint is acoustic musician Zach Strawn of Joonbug Blues. The FREE SHOW is from 7-9:30 pm. Get a taste of Zach’s self-described “swamp pop” musical style below!
Inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Freddie king, Albert King, John Mayer, Otis Rush, Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, Paul Butterfield, and Beth Hart, Zach has developed a unique style and plays a blend of covers (of course done his way) and original music.
Hear more of his music on SoundCloud and ReverbNation.
You’re sure to enjoy his bluesy/folksy/soulful/rock and roll/acoustic tunes while you enjoy your favorite meal and beverages. We look forward to having you for a super fun night! Again, the show is FREE! and from 7-9:30 pm on Thursday, April 16th.
We’re excited to have Hop Valley Brewing Co. here with us for our March Brewer’s Night on Tuesday, March 24th.
We’ll get things kicked off around 6pm with beer and food specials, raffles and a heck of a good ol’ time.
About Hop Valley Brewing Co.
Our original idea was pretty simple. Four lifelong Oregonians with knowledge of the local beer market and a better understanding of craft beer just wanted to make some good beer. We found the perfect place to start smack dab in the middle of the old hop central, and the rest is history, albeit a very short history.
We never anticipated it would turn out this way so soon – rapid expansion, two locations, statewide distribution and lots of great-tasting, award-winning beer.
Check out more of Hop Valley’s cool story.

Join Guinness to raise $1 million for local firefighters.
Patrons of legal drinking age are invited to celebrate National Raise Your Glass Day on Thursday, Feb. 26, by sharing a photo of their Guinness pint on Twitter, tagging @GuinnessUS, or post it on the Guinness US Facebook page. For each photo posted, Guinness will donate $1 towards its fundraising efforts in support of firefighters.
Together we raised more than $530,000 last year for The Leary Firefighters Foundation. Our commitment continues with your support.
Between now and St. Patrick’s Day, join our efforts by making a donation or purchasing a limited edition t-shirt. Designed in collaboration with country music superstar Brad Paisley, the shirt is a tribute to firefighters everywhere, including his father and brother-in-law.
All proceeds will go toward the LFF to provide much-needed equipment and training.
Come into the Mint and raise a pint of Guinness with us to support the firefighters who protect our community.
