Even if you're not a person who eats, this place is worth a trip just to try and make sense of it all. First, there's the branding. What does a German-style Leavenworthish look and feel have to do with the University of Washington Huskies? Second, is there really that big a demand in West Seattle for countless kinds of jam and jelly, barbecue sauce, pastas, and food I can't identify because the packaging is entirely in another language? Third, why does it take so long to get your sandwich? Even with four people working the food counter and no other customers, my order (two panini sandwiches) took 15 minutes, not that is wasn't worth the wait. If, on the other hand, you are a person who eats, go in and order some sandwiches, ice cream, and essentials (Danish bacon, anyone?). Try the turkey sandwich with cream cheese and mango chutney or the field roast panini with homemade pesto. In the ice cream department, get a cone with scoops of Coffee Oreo (brilliant idea!) and Swiss Orange Chocolate--these Husky Germans make it themselves, so you can't go wrong.
