BIZNOTE: Flying Apron now open in West Seattle Junction

Four months after Flying Apron announced it would add a West Seattle Junction location in the former Great Harvest space at 4709 California SW, today is opening day. The photos and announcement are out of the WSB inbox this morning:

Because we are SO EXCITED to bring our store to the West Seattle neighborhood, we’re opening to the public starting today – Sunday, 1/27! We’ve still got a few things to complete at the shop and will be working with limited hours to the public for the next two weeks – but we are very excited to launch this new, beautiful store to the West Seattle neighborhood. Expect us to be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, with a few exceptions here and there. If you see us, knock on the door, stop by and say hello! We’ll have a full menu of food and beverage, casual dining, and AMAZING coffee. To find out what we’re about, visit: – Hello neighbors!

Join us on Saturday, February 9th – for our grand opening! We’ll have music and tons of samples! Stop by, say hello, grab some food – this day is on US! We want everyone to experience what it means to Eat Freely. More details to come!

The new location of their vegan/gluten-free eatery is the third West Seattle business for proprietors Angela Cough and Jeff Silva, who also own Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (4410 California SW) and Shack Coffeehouse (2920 SW Avalon Way).

    Will this shop have a kids play area?

    • PDiddy January 27, 2019 (1:58 pm)

      Probably not. Its not McDonalds…

    • Jamr January 27, 2019 (3:45 pm)

      I sure as hope the hell it does not have a play area. It’s a restaurant not a day care.

      • ImNotSparticus January 27, 2019 (5:40 pm)

        Thank you! Agreed, restaurants don’t need any additional noise, these days. There are plenty of play spaces for kids. Let’s leave some for adults.

        • Lisab January 28, 2019 (9:24 am)

          Agree.  Tired of kid’s play areas unless it’s a big enough space.  Who wants to go to a noisy daycare.

        Seriously? I sure hope this is sarcasm.

    • LyndaB January 27, 2019 (9:13 pm)

      Your question reminds me of Coffee to a Tea and Sugar (?).  It was where the Hydrant is supposed to be.  They had a kids area.   

      • Htb January 27, 2019 (10:31 pm)

        What is up with the Hydrant? Per the interview this year, it was supposed to be open by Summerfest?

        • My two cents ... January 28, 2019 (8:54 pm)

          @HTB …. good question.  That has got to be a hefty rent bill they have been incurring with no revenue. A lot of catch up to get clear of that financial hole.

      • Elisa Castle January 27, 2019 (11:03 pm)

        That was THE BEST indoor play space!

      • dhg January 28, 2019 (5:27 pm)

        Coffee to a Tea and Sugar did have a kids playspace.  And we never went back.

    • Elisa Castle January 27, 2019 (11:01 pm)

      There will not be a dedicated place space, but we do have a lending library, art supplies and plenty of open space for kids to get the wiggles out.

    This is awesome!! I had no idea you guys were coming to west seattle – such a wonderful surprise. 

  • WGA January 27, 2019 (1:08 pm)

    Welcome to West Seattle!!!I have a number of friends who will be excited for you guys coming over here.I personally do not have any (known) gluten issues but I will make sure and try your delicious food. If you can pull off a gluten free version of a twice baked almond croissant I will certainly give it a go! Stopped in to say hi yesterday and the place looked great!!

  • Jesse Greene January 27, 2019 (2:03 pm)

    I just spent a a nice chunck of time there today and I am impressed!  Great job, Angela and Jeff, as it is a great place with awesome vibes.  

  • Junction Lady January 27, 2019 (6:04 pm)

    Nice!  I’m looking forward to visiting your establishment.

  • Kara Beauvoir January 27, 2019 (6:59 pm)

    My whole family just literally hooted and hollered when I saw this post and told them. We were regulars at your Fremont shop for years and I own the cookbook! Thank you for coming to WS…we’ll see you soon!

  • Lisa January 27, 2019 (9:39 pm)

    Whoo hoo! Welcome to the ‘hood, Flying Apron. I’m soooooo excited about this. 

  • christine January 28, 2019 (8:01 pm)

    Congrats Angela , Jeff & Family!  Shop looks great!  So stoked to have it close by!!! ;]

  • DK January 28, 2019 (8:44 pm)

    Can we get a butcher shop next door serving extra gluten products? Need some balance in the ‘hood now.

    • WSB January 28, 2019 (8:57 pm)

      With Cupcake Royale, Bakery Nouveau, and A La Mode Pies all so close, there’s your “extra gluten.” As for butcher shpp … used to be one just half a block up. Didn’t last.

      • Adrienne February 2, 2019 (2:18 pm)

        I love this response!

  • Amy January 28, 2019 (9:23 pm)

    Our family enjoyed our visit yesterday. We indulged in some pastries and took home a heavy loaf of bread packed with nuts and seeds.  Everything was delicious and the space was inviting. As a remote worker, I’m thinking this could be a perfect place to settle in and get some work done while downing some coffee and baked goods.

  • I’mcoveredinbees January 28, 2019 (9:39 pm)

    BEYOND thrilled to have a GF lunch option. Welcome and thank you for coming!

  • Graphic Wench February 10, 2019 (3:22 pm)

    Stopped in to give Flying Apron a try. The place is beautiful and airy. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We ordered the pizza at $8 a slice, which it appears they only have one type to select from, unless they ran out of other choices earlier? Plus the espresso seemed more expensive than other establishments in the area.  The pricing was very hard to see until you came up to the counter as there were several customers ahead of us. They also ran out of nonfat milk, which is understandable during our unusual winter weather, however, neither Starbucks or Uptown do not seem to have this problem. All said and done for two, we spent around $33 with tax. I’m glad this fills other people’s food tastes/needs but I doubt I will come back. I would recommend better signage so potential customers can make a choice about whether to eat there or not, before they get up to the counter.

Sorry, comment time is over.
