Charlestown Cafe: Sneak peek inside, pre-grand reopening


Tama and Sacha are two of the Charlestown Cafe team members working hard today to get the beloved restaurant back in shape for its grand reopening, now just days away, as first reported here last Thursday. It’s been a long and bumpy road to get the restaurant reopened after the February fire that at first left cafe co-owners hoping they’d only be closed for “days”; here’s one reason it took so long:


That’s the new hood system required as a condition of reopening. But as our photo shows, it’s in place and ready to go, and the place was abuzz with work when we stopped by earlier today:


Our Charlestown Cafe coverage — not just the fire, but also the development controversy that unfolded in preceding months — is all archived here.

    Ron and Larry and their long-time crew are true stars. They are a key ingredient (pun intended) to fostering community here in West Seattle.
    I hope most / all of the staff was able to find an alternative and one that will allow their return if that be their desire.
    See you next week!

    I bet a whole bunch of faithful readers will show up and eat them out of all their food (like @ Zippy’s)! Fingers crossed.
