BIZNOTE: The Nook celebrates 1st anniversary by adding coffee and more, as ‘Café by Day’

The photo montage is courtesy of The Nook in The Admiral District – where, as of today, they’ve added daytime hours so you can stop in for coffee … and more. The announcement:

It’s been one year since The Nook opened!

And we’re expanding our hours as a “Café By Day” where kids are welcome until 2 pm. We are proudly serving Vivace Espresso, a local and beloved coffee roaster, as well as tasty pastries and hot breakfast sandwiches. As far as the espresso machine goes, we are sticking to The Nook’s old school and traditional ways by using a spring lever machine – the only one you can find in West Seattle! The machine, made by Londinium (based out of London), highlights all the subtle notes of coffee, capable of extracting the smoothest and tastiest espresso shot!

Cafe hours are Tuesday-Friday 7 am until 1:30 pm, with Saturday & Sunday 8 am until 1:30 pm. Cocktail hours will remain the same, still opening at 5 pm.

The Nook is at 2206 California SW.

    Vivace – love their espresso!

    Kind of makes me feel bad for the coffee shop next door.

      Keep in mind that coffee shops next door to or across from each other is a Northwest tradition (and probably elsewhere too) … California/Alaska has coffee on three corners; on Alki, Top Pot and Starbucks are separated only by an alley …

    Great drink place so I bet the coffee will rock too! And black cups look great!

    Nook has the best cocktails in WS hands down!  Congrats and see you soon!

    Sweet! Here’s to hoping they serve a “white velvet” too. #vivaceforlife

    Great, looks like a good new option. BTW, the coffee roaster’s name is technically “Espresso Vivace”

      The announcement is from the proprietors. That’s what they wrote. I linked it to Vivace’s website.

    Wow, a manual espresso machine in a coffee shop? That is original. The baristas must be in good shape, he he. 

    I love it when business owners go for original and quality, instead of profit.

    While I understand their business rationale (their lease is 24/7 but the “bar” business is not)….I’m a bit surprised at the reaction here.  I find it unseemly that they decided to effectively mimic  Fiore’s intent and right next door.  If they siphon off even just 10-20% of the business that could be the difference btw Fiore staying open or closing plus most baristas (and bartenders) work largely on tips so the impact is amplified.  Flip the script and ask how they would react if Fiore started serving craft cocktails.  I’m sure they wouldn’t like it.  I for one won’t be spending my money at the Nook, small businesses should support each other in Seattle not try to hurt to each other. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
