West Seattle biznotes: Heartland hours; Curves drive; Myrtle cards

HEARTLAND CAFE STARTS DAILY BREAKFAST TOMORROW: Nancy from the new Heartland Café sends word that they start daily breakfast tomorrow, opening at 8 am Tuesdays-Sundays (closed Mondays) Heartland owner Jay says their hours are now: 8 am-10 pm Tuesdays-Thursdays, 8 am-3:30 am Fridays and Saturdays, 8 am-3 pm and 5 pm-9 pm (supper) Sundays. The Benbow Room bar is open 11 am-2 am Tuesdays-Fridays, 8 am-2 am Saturdays-Sundays.

TWO TONS OF DONATED FOOD: You can’t quite read it in the photo at that size, but the folks at Curves West Seattle collected 1,939 pounds of food – almost a ton – in their recent food drive. However – their friendly rivals at Curves Westwood collected 2,087 and “won” the annual competition. Nonetheless, they point out in the announcement that accompanied the photo – the local food banks are the real winners.

SPECIAL MOTHER’S DAY CARD: West Seattle letterpress enterprise Myrtle Alley Press just announced it’s part of a fundraiser that you might consider as a Mother’s Day gift idea: If you donate to Jubilee Women’s Center “in honor of your mother or a special woman in your life,” the announcement says, “Jubilee will send a beautiful letterpress card – that truly captures a mother’s spirit of giving – to the honored recipient.” Myrtle Alley Press – which uses antique, hand-cranked printing presses – donated the printing of the card, shown above. Inside, it reads: “Thank you for all the small things you have done and continue to do, day after day. Happy Mother’s Day.” Jubilee provides transitional housing for homeless women; you can make a donation and arrange for a card by following this link. (Mother’s Day is May 9th – the day after West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day!)

    Seriously, The Heartland and The Benbow Room are my new favorite places in Seattle, and The Benbow being my new favorite bar. If only they had beach volleyball, I would never have to leave.

    I’ve eaten at <3Land 3 times now, and it's been great every time. Although I have to say, the Benbow Room is kinda… cramped. I wish they could come up with a more effective use of space.

    any chance you could publish the address to these places…..

      They all have websites with their addresses, and we always link for those who are interested – everything blue in a WSB story is a link.

    Sorry – had terrible service and experience at the Heartland – do not open when you are working out so many kinks with your servers. Will consider giving it another chance …. maybe.

    Heartland looks beautiful! West Seattle is so lucky to have all these great places.

    Time for heartland to toss a couple PDFs of their menu on their website.

    Tried to go to the Heartland Sunday for supper, but it was shut down!

    I had Lunch at Heartland on Sunday. The food was truly awful. The hashbrowns were the 2nd worst I’ve ever had…mine being the first! Really, if I want crappy food I could stay home!

    The cheese omelette had a slice of velveeta on top of it- gross!

    Also, the mangaer on duty was plain obnoxious. Loud, immature and overbearing.

    Heartland beautiful? What on earth took so long to open? It looks like a construction zone. And it looks really really dirty!

    i had SUCH high hopes for this place! I was looking forward to a good breakfast, an alternative to Charlestown. Oh well. I won’t be back to eat. Maybe for a drink in the bar. Maybe.

    Early personal review is “not so hot”…food was cold when served. My pancakes were barely cooked. Bacon was ok…coffee was cool too. Service odd and indifferent. Funny place that needs an improved menu, experienced help and a few months under their belt to get their bearings. Disappointing considering how long it took them to open.

Sorry, comment time is over.
