West Seattle beverages: Opening day for Sound & Fog

(WSB photos)

“A four-month labor of love” – after 2 years of planning – has finally brought Justin Krebs to opening day for Sound & Fog in The Junction, on the ground floor of Broadstone Sky (4745 40th SW). The coffee/wine bar with beer and “small bites” opened its doors for the first time around noon and will be open until 9 tonight (official hours below).


We first told you about Sound & Fog back in March; he’s the first-ever tenant in the commercial space on the north side of the building, next to the future city park that’s currently temporary home to Fire Station 32 while its reconstruction is under way in The Triangle. (As we type, some of the firefighters from FS 32 are here trying out what Justin has to offer; they were heard to promise him, “We’ll keep you in business!”)

Available for starters at Sound & Fog – 12 different wines, $6-$12/glass; rotating selection of beer (today, it’s Wander Shoetoss Rye IPA and Holy Mountain Wit); coffee (rotating roasters – Olympia and Broadcast are available today) and tea; espresso soda; Cascara soda. The food selection includes pastries from Standard Bakery, sandwiches and salads from Molly’s, and “small bites” including olives, almonds, and cheese.

Hours for starters, Justin says, will be 6:30 am-7 pm Mondays-Thursdays, 6:30 am-9 pm Fridays, 7 am-9 pm Saturdays, 7 am-7 pm Sundays. More photos when we’re back at HQ.

    What a great addition to the area east of The Junction as all the apartments keep appearing. It’s also nice to see a coffee shop that has a beer/wine selection for those who are there in the transition from workday to happy hour — as a work-from-home freelancer, I know there are a lot of us in W. Seattle who are always looking for coffee shops or happy hours where we can get a little work done while enjoying a craft beverage appropriate to the day part we’re in. Good job!

    I had a cup of coffee this past Frida,  and it was excellent.  Congrats to the owner on bringing such needed and fun amenity to our neighborhood.  That seems like  a really beautiful building, and clearly they take pride in the appearance – as the front landscape of the apartment building is amazing.   Can’t wait for the park. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
