Wee Drop Inn, a popular eating place in Sumas, WA. Circa 1955 - 1970

Who remembers eating at the Wee Drop Inn?  This is a menu from the Wee Drop Inn which was north of the Sumas City Hall on the west side of Cherry Street.  It was owned and operated by Bob and Lily Breining from approximately 1955 till it's closing in 1970.  The date of this menu is unknown,but you will noticed that the most expensive meal is the T-Bone Steak with a shrimp or crab cocktail for $3.75.

  1. I used to eat lunch at the Wee Drop inn in the early 1940s. Russ Lambert was my great uncle and Sid Lambert was my uncle. My great great grandfather built a log cabin on the Easterbrook Road where my faher and I were born.
    I'm presently writing a book on the history of Sumas==glad to see the Sumas Museum startup.
