1 year in the works, Coffee at the Heights about to open

futurecoffee.jpgIt’s been one year and five days since we first told you about Coffee at the Heights, the espresso shop that the proprietors of PB&J Textiles have been working on at their shop’s former location in Sunrise Heights (7349 35th SW; here’s a map). As is often the case for new food/drink establishments in particular, it’s been a bit of a bumpy road, but they are finally on the verge of opening – here’s the latest from proprietors Paul and David:

We are ready for our final inspections. Tuesday is plumbing and electrical, and if there are no issues then we can schedule the final health inspection. Once that passes, we are open. Our grand opening will start May 1 and run for 30 days with all of our drawings on May 31st! … Grand prize winner is a coffee drink for a day for a year!

In the meantime, Paul and David are looking for artists who might want to show their work in the new shop – they would love to hear from you ASAP – their number at PB&J Textiles is 206-243-3053.

    Glad to hear this is still on track. Any info on the coffee beans they’re going to use? Also, the place looks *tiny* from the outside. Is there any seating, or is it going to be all to-go?

    Sage, Caffe Darte is our roaster. Also right now, no indoor seating due to the Health Department requirements. We plan to get approval for 2 tables inside and we are working with the building owner to remove the plantings outside and add outdoor seating.

    Thanks for the info. Caffe Darte is not too shabby — good news in my book. Sure wish there were more seating available, but I understand you all can’t create space where none exists. Someday I’d like to see a place to hang out in the neighborhood, but…

Sorry, comment time is over.
