Snoqualmie Casino celebrates new deli

Design inspired by Pacific Northwest nature and tribal traditions.

Snoqualmie Casino, Seattle’s closest casino, opened its new Snoqualmie Café and Deli to the public, Thursday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Honored guests at the ceremony included members of the Snoqualmie Tribe, Snoqualmie Casino team members and partnering design firm, I-5 Designs.

The 2,250-square-foot Snoqualmie Café and Deli is an expansion and re-design of the previous café located next to the Falls Buffet. The new Snoqualmie Café and Deli offers an expansive menu including Asian cuisine offerings. The deli features a casual dining experience with a selection of proven favorites. It is the only Snoqualmie Casino dining venue open 24 hours every day.

Snoqualmie Casino design partner I-5 Designs created a space inspired by the heritage of the Snoqualmie Tribe. The color palate is distinctly Pacific Northwest utilizing rich wood tones, river rock grays and forest greens — all an effort to bring the outdoors inside. The primary focal point of the venue is a custom mural carving, “Moon the Transformer,” that draws its inspiration from the traditions of the Snoqualmie Tribe, The People of the Moon.
