West Seattle coffee news, from Harry’s and Freshy’s

Two West Seattle coffee notes percolating today:

FIRST CHICKEN, THEN COFFEE: Welcome the new spinoff from Harry’s Chicken Joint in north Morgan Junction – call it Harry’s Coffee Joint, though it’s really Catherine and Jared’s coffee joint – there they are above, Catherine Cougan, daughter of Chicken Joint founder Bruce Cougan, and Jared Harkness. They’re in soft-open mode right now on the south side of Harry’s, with free samples, and then officially opening 7 am-2 pm weekdays starting next Monday. They’re roasting their own coffee except for the espresso blend (Vashon); they’re also baking their own goodies, including the bursting-with-blueberries scones we saw while visiting a little while ago. It’s a cozy spot, as is the chicken side, but stools are on order, Catherine tells us, and you can sit over in the chicken space says the Coffee Joint – his daughter’s enterprise – officially opens next week, with espresso and treats, and will be open 7 am-2 pm, while the chicken hours continue at 4 pm-8 pm. This is all going on at 6032 California SW.

FRESHY’S EXPANDS DOWNTOWN: If you work downtown and need coffee .. you’ll soon have a new West Seattle-rooted shop to patronize: Freshy’s Coffee, which has been in The Admiral District for 10 years now, is opening a second location at 1099 Stewart St., Suite 102. “Hoping for a soft opening in October,” they say via Instagram.

    Hmmm this sounds amazing. Maybe we’ll see them join forces and have a Chicken’n Waffles joint to go to those weekend mornings?

    excited about Harry’s Coffee Joint .. so nice to see some places open on this side of West Seattle finally!

    Congrats to both coffee places. I’m more than happy to try out Harry’s coffee, but won’t be partaking in any chicken’n waffles, their chicken doesn’t do it for me.

      In case that belies some confusion – the chicken side of the house is NOT serving during coffee hours. They remain open 4 pm-8 pm. Coffee is open 7 am-2 pm. The seating in the chicken zone, if you will, is open for spillover, they told us.

    Amber and Freshy’s are the awesome and wish them the best of luck downtown! On the edge of my lunch range from the office (near Freeway Park), but definitely head over there when I can for the best breakfast sandwich and soups in town!!!

    Good coffee. Would feel even better if the barista washed his hair more often. My only gripe, otherwise cute place.

    • WSB October 7, 2015 (2:09 pm)

      That’s not necessarily infrequent hair washing. It’s a look. Can vouch, having had a young adult in the house until recently.

Sorry, comment time is over.
