Village Pizza has been a mainstay in Roslyn WA for over 20 years. It was an abandoned bar named Slim’s when Harry and his girlfriend approached the owner of the building with their concept to open a pizza place. And ever since then they have been making pizza that some say is the best pizza on the east side of the Cascades. Despite having different ownership, the pizza has been consistantly good.
Village Pizza almost ended in the mid 1990′s when a tragic fire burned the entire building to the ground. Harry, who had started the pizza place, tragically past away that night, not from the actual fire, but from the sight of his business going up in flames: he suffered a fatal heart attack. Village Pizza was rebuilt, carried on by his daughter, and now by new ownership. The 4 bedroom Roslyn hotel above Village Pizza was named in his honor: Harry’s Inn.
Today, you can enjoy a pizza in the “new” Village Pizza with the same good old pizza as always. The kid friendly Roslyn restaurant can get packed so do not be surprised if seating is limited, especially on weekend nights. Nevertheless, the wait is never too long and if seating is limited then you can always get it to go. When sitting you can play trivia with the Trivial Pursuit cards at all the tables while you enjoy a pitcher of beer or some root beer. They also have salads to get you started.
So if you visit the Cle Elum / Roslyn WA area, look for Village Pizza in the middle of Downtown Roslyn at 105 W Pennsylvania – basically across the street from The Brick.
And if you are in a hurry or want to pick up a pizza to go, call ahead and order over the phone (509) 649-2992.
