Update on West Seattle Coffee House’s grand opening tomorrow

Getting ready tonight for the new drive-through West Seattle Coffee House‘s grand opening tomorrow (Friday), that’s Helen and owner Janel. A few more things have happened since our Monday report about the impending opening of the stand at Hans VW Repair (35th/Graham): They’ve decided on Little Rae’s as their bakery provider, and will have some wheat- and gluten-free treats too. They’ll use Ghirardelli chocolate. “And REAL espresso milkshakes!” Helen pointed out. Other key points we noted earlier – Zoka is the coffee, and they have a credit-card machine. Though they plan to start off with their regular weekday schedule, 6:30 am-5:30 pm, don’t make a special trip right at 6:30 – there’s one small hitch for tomorrow only, according to Janel; the city is doing some work in the area overnight tonight, and will be cutting their power for a while, possibly until as late as 8 am. But she’s hoping they’ll finish early, so if you’re driving by anyway, look for the OPEN sign, and if you don’t see it, check back later.

    What a great location! If the coffee is good, they should do really well! Good luck!

    will definately be checking this out. Zoka is not my favorite, but they are ok. Little Raes is great though!

    I experienced the most divine cup of heaven today! Helen served up a SUPERB cup of Zoka Coffee that blew me away! If you are a coffee snob, like me, Helen knows what she’s doing behind the bar. Trust me, this place is worth stopping in for.

Sorry, comment time is over.
