Cornerspotted: Quesnel's Restaurant on Beach Drive

Yesterday, we asked you to guess the former location of Quesnel's Restaurant in Seattle, pictured here in 1961. We saw a guess of Alki although it's actually a little south of that at 4703 Beach Dr SW right at Jacobsen Road.

Image: Wikimedia The restaurant was started by Waite and Crystal Quesnell and eventually taken over by children Neal and Marge Saffer. The family also lived upstairs as well as in the smaller house next door. Quesnel's closed in February 1986 and was converted into a full-time residence that the Saffers lived in until 2004.
