Caffe Vita was originally announced as opening adjacent to Rudy’s Barbershop (WSB sponsor) in The Triangle. Then Rudy’s confirmed that’s not happening. But there WILL be coffee – per this announcement we received today:
West Seattlelite Julie Mierzwiak has officially announced plans to open Realfine Coffee late summer, 2015. After many years of skillfully crafting coffee each day in a popular West Seattle café, the local barista has signed a lease for the space at 4480 Fauntleroy Ave. (adjacent to the brand new Rudy’s Barbershop). She is collaborating with friend and fellow Northwest entrepreneur Dani Cone (Fuel Coffee, High 5 Pie, Cone & Steiner General).
Mierzwiak and Cone are excited to serve the community in which Mierzwiak has lived and worked for over 14 years, and Cone has family ties. The business partners look forward to creating a great place for folks to gather, meet, and connect.
“West Seattle is a special place, and also a state of mind,” said Mierzwiak. “With the amount of growth underway in our ‘small town’, it is important for us to maintain the sense of community and connectedness that West Seattle was built on. I am beyond excited to reconnect with my West Seattle customers and neighbors.”
The shop will be open daily from 6 am – 7 pm, and serve superior coffee, local baked goods, beer and wine, and grab ‘n go snacks.
The announcement didn’t say what coffee they’ll use; we’re asking that as a followup.
