One of the largest and busiest restaurants in the City will be closing it’s doors at the end of the month. Canyon’s, which has locations in Redmond, Bothell and Monroe as well, will be closing it’s Mountlake Terrace location after 12 years in the City.

Mazatlan, a Mexican restaurant in Kenmore, recently lost it’s lease after 30 years in the same location. Mazatlan approached the owner of Canyon’s, Scott Perry, with an interest in purchasing the Mountlake Terrace location. After some negotiations, they came to a mutually beneficial deal that Perry says was too good to refuse. Mazatlan will be taking over the property beginning July 1st.

The Mountlake Terrace location was the second of the four locations for Canyon’s. In 1998 Canyon’s opened in what was previously a soup and salad restaurant called Zoopa.

In a letter posted at Canyon’s, owner Scott Perry thanks the MLT community for the past 12 years:

Owner and founder Scott Perry I would personally like to thank all of you for your business over the last 12 years because without you, we would not have had the opportunity to exist. During this time Canyon’s has made thousands of new friends and created lasting memories for so many. I also believe we have positively impacted the local community in many ways during our years of operation. This includes creaeting hope and opportunity by employing hundreds of local residents, giving support to countless community events at local schhools, churches, food banks, civi organizations and other charitable organizations, as well as hosting hundreds of “Dine Out” fund raising events. All in all it has been a great experience doing business in Mountlake Terrace.

  1. Over the years they removed almost every vegetarian/vegan-friendly menu item they had early on, pushing vegetarians to look elsewhere or settle for a (non-vegan) “frozen patty” Garden Burger or a Caesar salad (without cheese or egg-dressing for vegans). Too expensive for the lack of options when others abound elsewhere.

  2. It’ll be interesting to have Mazatlan closer for the dining-out veg-options, instead of moving across the county line in that area. I think I lost track how many years I hadn’t gone to Canyons because there was (relatively) nothing for us there.

  5. I saw the writing on that wall when the need to get a bite to eat when going to the movies was eliminated when Cinnebarre started selling food. Canyon’s had been rather empty for a while.

  7. Whoever wrote the article spelled the restaurant wrong. It’s Canyons… or Canyons’/Canyons’s but not Canyon’s. Also… Scott Perry was awful to work for and never gave his employees breaks, no matter how “generous” he was to the community. rn
