2 departures

One is good news, the other sad (at least for many of us old-timers).

Sad first: Just found out via the West Seattle Herald (in a letter to the editor from last week; we’ll admit we’re behind in our reading), the Charlestown Street Cafe has lost its lease. We went there a lot in our early years here; not too many WS restaurants back then, plus we enjoyed their breakfasts. Then along came Easy Street, and Endolyne Joe’s, and our tastes shifted. But CSC has given ample warning, so we’ll go back for another round of Montana Potatoes (if they’re still on the menu!) at least once before they go …

Now, happy: The long-awaited Alki Statue of Liberty super-spruce-up is finally under way. As promised, the statue was trucked away this afternoon; read more here about what happens next. And check out a slideshow of what the future might look like when the all-new Liberty 2 arrives.

    I still think West Seatle is a little short of “Weekend” breakfasts places. Some of the other places you mentioned can be maxed out by 9 AM. (Charleston was often our back up place!)

    I wish Circa at Adrmiral and Califonia would get a bigger place – their biggest problem is too little seating.

    That’s a shame!! My family and I frequent Charleston Cafe all the time. It’s one of the best places in WS for breakfast. There is another place down in Burien that’s pretty good….Huckleberry’s or something like that.

Sorry, comment time is over.
