BIZNOTE: New West Seattle coffee shop opens – with food on the way next door

Thanks to Rosario at West Seattle Coworking (6040 California SW; WSB sponsor) for the tip on a new neighbor – as of today, Delridge-founded Youngstown Coffee Company has expanded, with proprietor Zoe adding a Morgan Junction location at 6032 California SW.

That spot was briefly home to a coffee shop that spun off from the now-closed Harry’s Chicken Joint next door.

And later this summer, Zoe plans to open an eatery in THAT space – it’ll be called Crisp, offering fare such as salads and wraps. More info on that as it gets closer to opening, but for now, you can visit Youngstown’s new Morgan location 6 am-5 pm weekdays, 8 am-5 pm weekends.

    That ratty ‘SMOOTH SKIN’ script has got to go.  It’s just weird.

  • Katy June 19, 2019 (12:19 pm)

    Wow, really cool! Zoe is awesome and we have enjoyed visiting her coffee shop on Delridge a few times. 

  • Paper Boat Booksellers June 19, 2019 (12:56 pm)

    Yay Zoe! We are so excited to be your neighbor-we can’t wait to open so that we can grab some coffee everyday-we’ll stop by soon! 

  • Marie June 19, 2019 (1:04 pm)

    Wonderful! Looking forward to trying both new additions!

    Lovely! Can’t wait to check it out.

  • Justina Miller June 19, 2019 (2:27 pm)

    Awesome news! 

  • Brian M June 19, 2019 (2:28 pm)

    Am I the only one saddened to see fried chicken morph to salads/wraps?

    • East Coast Cynic June 19, 2019 (7:35 pm)

      With another Coffee Shop.  How original:/

      • WSB June 19, 2019 (7:58 pm)

        South of C & P until Caffe Ladro was a little short on indie coffee.

        • kitty June 19, 2019 (8:30 pm)

          Thank You! I am absolutely thrilled to find out there is going to be a legit coffee shop next door to my building.

        • Airwolf June 20, 2019 (9:28 am)

          There’s lots of coffee options in the area: Little Prague, Thriftway , starbucks, Ladro, C&P and now Youngstown. 

        • Walt June 25, 2019 (5:49 pm)

          QED was there for a while, and the neighborhood / traffic didn’t seem to hold up that more indie coffee was needed.  I wish her the best, though. Perhaps with the food expansion she’ll have more draw than what QED was able to offer as a tack-on to Harry’s.

        @ east coast cynic  Congratulations for being the ONE snarky commentator! Well done! Keep it up! We need more of that wit all around! It will make for such a better neighborhood! Don’t know anything about this coffee shop – but, can’t fault someone for wanting to be bold enough, brave,  work and build a career & business … sorry it’s not “original” enough for you. 

  • Deb June 19, 2019 (6:01 pm)

    Zoe’s great! Her shop has been a great addition to my corner. Looking forward to Crisp. I wish her the best of luck. And hope she makes back into the Delridge shop once in a while! 

  • C June 19, 2019 (6:25 pm)

    Congrats!  As a former resident, I’ll look forward to checking it out when I visit friends in the neighborhood  😃

  • Iheartcofffee June 19, 2019 (6:30 pm)

    I agree that Zoe is awesome. She is so friendly and cares greatly about West Seattle. Support her!

  • Kc June 19, 2019 (6:49 pm)

    Sounds Great I work in the area and often thought a soup, salad, sandwich shop would do a booming business something like “snubbys” that use to be in the junction except I. A smaller scale. Can’t wait to see it open!!Welcome to the Hood

  • Earlybird June 19, 2019 (8:08 pm)

    Zoe (and pup Ralph) are the best! We’re thoroughly enjoying having Youngstown on the Delridge side of WS and it’s awesome to see such a kind, community-minded entrepreneur expand. 

  • Iliketoeathealthy June 19, 2019 (8:31 pm)

    Yes!!!! On both fronts, so excited about a new coffee place and a salad/wrap place. Fantastic news!

  • daisyg June 19, 2019 (9:18 pm)

    Salads and wraps sound awesome! Love the name Crisp too!

  • Skin girl June 19, 2019 (10:36 pm)

    Woot woot!  More Morgan junction flair!  Loves it!  I’ll be a regular, and we will be sending our clients your way after their services.  Excited!  Welcome to “the hood.” 

  • Chris June 20, 2019 (5:31 am)

    Had the joy of a great coffee and getting some work done there yesterday, was amazing! So excited for Zoe (and pup Ralph), and what she’s gonna do with this space.Definitely worth a visit! 

  • Jasmine June 20, 2019 (7:30 am)

    Congrats Zoe! I love having Youngstown Coffee in the Delrdige Neighborhood. Hopefully you can create the same community in the Morgan Junction.

  • RCS June 20, 2019 (9:13 am)

    YAY! I’m excited to see more food and beverage coming to the Morgan Junction. Welcome!

  • HTB June 20, 2019 (9:52 am)

    The Morgan Junction mini-boom continues! Though they should probably get rid of the old Jade West and Smooth Skin signs :)

Sorry, comment time is over.
