Established in 1956, Granny's Café & Indian Valley Motel is a small family run business. The café serves quality food with rustic charm. Located in the heart of Olympic National Park, we are a great stop for tourists and locals alike. We offer hearty breakfasts, awesome burgers and wonderful desserts. We also feature small-batch local wine, microbrews and ciders. Everything is made from scratch, as locally sourced as possible. We welcome everyone with a smile, and hope you enjoy our food and hospitality. Indian Valley Motel has been recently updated and has a homey feel. The motel is in the perfect location for those wandering through the park. We hope you enjoy your stay, and return again and again for a quiet reprieve.
As Indian Valley Drive-In, Granny's Café was established during the rich fishing and logging era of the Northwest. It has been owned by three families, each adding their own unique charm. The drive-in (and motel) was founded in the 1950's by Earl and Alberta Tyndall. In the 1970's Marion Raef bought the restaurant, making excellent specials and treating her employees as family. Her brother Richard, and his partner Ed came to help, adding their own kitchey charm, and the nickname became official as Granny's Café.
In 1999, Marion decided it was her time to retire and sold the restaurant to a long time admirer, Terry Roszatycki, and his wife Carol. With four teenage daughters, the Roszatycki's had a captive staff. Terry and Carol worked tirelessly to create an updated charm. The Roszatycki's eldest daughter, Angela, and husband, Troy, now own the café and hope pieces of the previous owners shine through. Troy is an avid hiker and photographer with a passion for the national parks. Angela makes everything by hand, from soups to desserts, and loves being in the kitchen. The soft serve ice cream remains as popular as ever!
