Charlestown Cafe: Why you’re not seeing lots of activity

May 20, 2008 at 8:44 pm | In Charlestown Cafe, West Seattle news, West Seattle restaurants | 3 Comments

Quick followup to our update the other day mentioning the permit’s been granted for repairs to the fire-damaged Charlestown Cafe: We heard back from co-owner Larry Mellum, who explains you’re not seeing signs of work onsite because “The hood is being fabricated offsite … We will know a little more by the end of the week but at this juncture it looks like we COULD be opening around the 10th of June. It is early so don’t hold me to that but it is looking that way!!”

  1. It was really funny to come home and read this as I just passed it a few minutes ago on my way home from PCC and wondered why it didn’t look like anything was being done. Are you guys reading our minds now? ;)

  2. Ha! I was never the world’s greatest writer or amazing investigative journalist (as is obvious to regular readers) but my major strength tends to be that I’m curious about the same things many other people turn out to be curious about. Why this, why not that, what’s all that about, what ever happened with that … And ultimately, though we bark up other branches of the news tree too, that’s much of what WSB is about :) When I talk to college classes, I always say … what the best journalism is really all about is curiosity. (And if you don’t naturally have it, it’s hard to fake.) — TR

  3. Getting the Charlestown “back” sooner or LATER helps just a bit after losing The Corner Inn. Of course they don’t have a piano bar and dancing but they do have the best darn French Toast IN THE WORLD!!!
