More on “Al’s,” and an impending neighbor

Made it over to get a closer look at “Al’s.” Sorry I got it wrong while driving by the first time — it’s Al’s CAFE and Espresso, not “Deli.” Small hand-lettered sign promises “soups, salads, sandwiches.” It was closed by the time we got there, so I can’t vouch for any of that myself. An interesting sighting nearby, though — a couple doors down, next to West Seattle Cellars, a liquor-license notice is posted for “Vino Verite” — with a handwritten sign promising “Wine Bar Soon!” (I see it’s got a Web site too.) Makes sense, but I’m wondering what’s up with all this “Verite” — that’s the real name behind the Cupcake Royale people, too.

    Is the purpose of this blog to track liquor licenses?

    I have been to Al’s a number of times with friends and family. If you want a quiet conversation with a friend over lunch , it is excellent. The food has been very good. Prices are great. Sandy, the owner is very friendly and has two great helpers in Sara and Lyn. Dog biscuits and water for the dog owners.

Sorry, comment time is over.
