Tasting Room / Retail Store
Sit in a section of the original Seattle Mariners dugout, have a beer and try some peanuts fresh out of our antique barrel roaster — take a refillable Bucket of CB’s Nuts home for the family!
Our Tasting Room / Retail Store
We are located in an old North Kitsap fire station at 6013 NE State Highway 104 (the intersection of Hwy 104 and Hwy 307/Bond Road). Inside you’ll find a friendly atmosphere filled with our fresh roasted nuts, seeds and nut butters, an active antique barrel roaster roasting peanuts daily, and an assortment of other locally crafted foods.
In our cooler, you will find a selection of great beers from our microbrew partners, and along the back wall is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a cold beer and a bowl of peanuts — a section of the original Seattle Mariners dugout from the Kingdome days.
Antique Barrel Roaster
On most weekdays you can stop by and see our antique 1919 Lambert roaster in action, roasting in-the-shell peanuts in small batches to perfection the way only small batch roasting can achieve — our roastmaster cracking open and checking the peanuts every few minutes until they are just the right taste and color.
This roaster was used in Tacoma in the 1930′s as Adam’s Peanut Butter’s original roaster — we’ve restored it to its original luster and take pride in using such a beautiful and historic piece of equipment to roast our peanuts, it is part of what makes them uniquely delicious.
At CB’s Nuts we are more than just nut lovers, we are champions of local and handcrafted foods and offer a variety of samples from local and regional producers of jams, oils, candies and more. Of course, we also have samples available of all of our nuts and seeds and nut butters, and sometimes tasty items that we are experimenting with (like special flavored or smoked nuts).
Try before you buy. We’re confident that you will taste the difference — the difference that handcrafted small batch roasting makes, the difference that attention to detail makes — from the sourcing of raw nuts to finishing with just the right touch of seasoning to making sure that everything is as fresh as possible.
Sit your butt down on a piece of sports history!
Baseball fans will appreciate CB’s section of the original Seattle Mariners dugout in our Tasting Room. Sit and enjoy some nuts and a beer on the same bench used by Hall of Famers Dave Niehaus, Edgar Martinez and Ken Griffey, Jr. — but please, no spitting on the floor!
Baseball plays no small part in CB’s history. It was at a small roaster on the way into a Mariners-Orioles game in Baltimore that CB’s Clark Bowen first tasted the fresh roasted peanuts that would inspire his journey to create the perfect roast, and it was outside the Mariner’s Safeco Field that Clark first started selling his own delicious fresh roasted peanuts.
The Ferry to Food Tasting Trail
What’s better than a scenic drive? A scenic drive with great food stops, that’s what! The Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas offer an exceptional array of artisan food and beverages. Take the ferry from Edmonds to Kingston for your first stops.
Mirracole Morsels in Kingston is just across the street from the ferry terminal in a historic building with a great view of Puget Sound. Inside you’ll find delicious bakery items, including the best peanut butter cookies you’ve ever had (Can you guess their secret?). Don’t overdo it at the bakery because you’ll want to save room for some fresh roasted nuts and seeds at CB’s Tasting Room just down the road. If you get here at the right time you can watch one of our roastmasters at work using our antique 1919 barrel roaster.
After your stop at CB’s you’ll head toward the Hood Canal Bridge and the Olympic Peninsula for a beautiful drive to Port Townsend, stopping on the way at Chimicum’s Finnriver Farm and Cidery to experience handcrafted artisan hard cider and spirited wines in a scenic, rural setting.
As you enter Port Townsend the Mt. Townsend Creamery is on the right. Enjoy some excellent cheeses and watch the cheesemakers at work. Don’t miss your chance to explore Port Townsend’s historic and walkable downtown/waterfront while you are there.
