FOOD NOTES: Endolyne Joe’s, Original Bakery closed this week for roof work; A la Mode Pies finalizes opening date

Two notes from the West Seattle food world:

ENDOLYNE JOE’S, ORIGINAL BAKERY CLOSED ALL WEEK: Thanks to Cindi for the tip. The owner of the Fauntleroy/Endolyne building (45th SW/SW Wildwood) that is home to Endolyne Joe’s (WSB sponsor) and The Original Bakery is doing work this week – so both are closed all week. Joe’s even made the cute altered logo at right and has this statement: “Due to landlord-related building improvements for other tenants, Endolyne Joe’s will be closed Monday, September 12th- Monday, September 19th. Regular business will resume September 20th.” The bakery, meantime, is usually closed Mondays anyway, and has posted that it too will reopen September 20th.

A LA MODE PIES FINALIZES WEST SEATTLE OPENING DATE: We’ve been reporting since April that A la Mode Pies is expanding to West Seattle – the official white-neon sign is now up outside its future storefront at 4225 SW Alaska (left photo, courtesy ALMP). Today, A la Mode has finalized the opening date first mentioned here last month: Monday, October 3rd. Hours will be 8 am-10 pm Sundays-Thursdays, 8 am-11 pm Fridays-Saturdays, with a happy-hour-style “pie time” starting at 3:14 pm daily. Savory pies (“with flavors like Slow Braised Beef and Potato, Spinach and Feta, Chicken Pot Pie, BBQ Pulled Pork”) will be offered as well as the “boozy milkshakes” that WSB readers were asked to help name (mentioned in the announcement, Admiral Apple and Genesee Grasshopper), six flavors of ice cream, and “PieFries – shreds of buttery pie dough sprinkled with parmesan and herbs or cinnamon and sugar.” As mentioned in earlier coverage, weekly pie-making classes are planned and regular customers will have “a front-row seat to the pie-making process.”

    It appears the landlord is leasing the rooftop of the Joe’s/Original Bakery building to multiple wireless carriers to install cell sites.  They had three separate clusters of three antennas up on the roof this morning.  That’s probably worth around $3,000/month to the landlord.  Should greatly improve the coverage black hole for most carriers between Joe’s and 35th.   The roof must require some reinforcement work to support the weight of the nine antennas and associated equipment.

      They just painted the facade – I’m hoping to reach them this week for an update.

    In the meantime, try Lucky Chinese on 4th So. and Mead on west side of Georgetown, up from St. Vincent de Paul. Open everyday till 9:00pm (closed Sun.)

    Perfect A La Mode is opening the week of my birthday! That won’t be dangerous at all!
