West Seattle restaurants: Beachside Café to open April 4th

The new owners of the former Alki Bakery, closed since November, have set the date for opening the Beachside Café – right across from the restaurant they already own (Alki Café). Just in tonight from Sharon Bang:

After a long wait, we finally have an official opening date for Beachside Cafe on Alki. We are opening on Monday, April 4th. Every time we felt like we were ready, there were things to be improved. We really wanted to do it right for all those who have been waiting patiently with so much anticipation. We wanted to make sure we bring quality to this great location. We searched for the best quality of ingredients for all the food items we were going to prepare; as small as just the right bread for each sandwich or better syrup for our espresso lovers. We also wanted to work with local vendors to bring freshness and to support the local economy.

Our hours of operation will be as follows;
Sun – Thursday: 7 am to 7 pm
Fri & Sat: 7 am to 8 pm

We are going to serve Caffe Vita Coffee. We are, however, bringing back a manual espresso machine for best taste of coffee.

Here are list of the things you will find at Beachside Cafe on Alki;

Panini Sandwich
Classic Sandwich
Signature Salad & Soup
Frozen Yogurt & Smoothies
Pearl Sugar Waffles
Coffee from Caffe Vita
Cinnamon Rolls from Alki Bakery
Cheese cake from Cheesecake Factory
Bread from Grand Central Bakery
Bagels from Zatz a Better Bagel
Pies from Alki Pies
Pastry from Little Rae’s Bakery
Pastry from Macrina Bakery

We hope to make Beachside Cafe on Alki a place where everyone can come together and enjoy simple things in life.

The name was announced last month. And if you’re a recent arrival wondering where this is – 61st and Alki SW, right across from Statue of Liberty Plaza.

    Why close so early? How about till 10 or 11p? Serve some nice wine selections? Why give all the dinner business to your neighbors?

    How/Where can I apply for a job at the cafe?

  • Lorelee March 25, 2011 (11:11 pm)

    Local vendors – great! Cheesecake Factory cheesecake? Not local… Or cool.

    Sounds Awesome! Happy to hear they are setting up before the summer rush of beach & tourist people! Best of Luck to them!

    So agreeing with Lorelee, really, Cheesecake Factory??? There are much better choices in Seattle. And hopefully the milk that you are using for your espresso is from a good small dairy, that makes the difference too.

      next to wing dome in the junction, which in turn is next to capers – tuscan & wing dome are both part of what used to be part of capers before it dropped the cafe. hope that helps. – TR
