BIZNOTE: Luna Park Café turning 32

Happy 32nd anniversary to Luna Park Café! Tomorrow’s the big day, and to celebrate, the café will be offering Birthday Cake Shakes for $4. In his message about the milestone, proprietor John Bennett also sent us a photo from the past:

He explains, “This is a picture of it before we got started in September 1988. Was Pat and Ron’s Tavern.” Read more history on the café website (and note that this was NOT the site of the amusement park with the same name – that was on the water at Duwamish Head).

    That Tavern was a real piece of “old Seattle”. :)

    So was the original Sea Way Marine. I do not remember if it was in the one story portion of this bldg or the next place up the street — had about 100 old outboard motor covers on the roof! — Help – anyone!

    Bill. I remember Sea Way. It was up the hill, south  of  Luna Park.

    Happy Birthday Luna Park.  John was my neighbor for years when his daughters were growing up!

    Glad they survived the pandemic. Really miss old Seattle treasures like this. I wish someone would step up and save Paliament Tavern now.

    Luna Park is a treasure of character for our West Seattle hood. Thanks John and congratulations!

    Happy Birthday Luna Park! We always have a great time when we visit, we were here again a few days ago, and it’s my Kid’s favorite restaurant. Thank you!
