BIZNOTE: High Point coffee shop update

(WSB photo, June)

If you’ve been wondering about the status of the future coffee shop that Itto’s Tapas proprietor Khalid Agour plans to open at 35th and Graham in the Upton Flats development – we have an update today:

Construction is taking longer than planned. We will be opening – hopefully – sometime in October. Construction is coming along.

We have finalized the name – “Nos Nos Coffee House.” Nos Nos is a popular coffee drink in Morocco. It literally means “half half” and is made from half espresso and half milk.

We can’t wait to open up the space to our beloved West Seattle community that have been waiting patiently.

Our previous report was back in June.

    Good thing the thousands of square feet of prime, street-fronting retail-ready space in the same building is being used for commuting cubicle 9-5 office workers for the Seattle Housing Authority. We couldn’t possibly have done something more interesting or useful with that space, especially in one of the densest neighborhoods in West Seattle. Unreal.

      @ Jort-  What would you have done with the space, and why didn’t you?

        It would be great if the SHA cubicles were turned into a grocery store/mini super market.  But, unfortunately, I believe, and I think this was mentioned on this blog or some other blog  that I read, that grocers and other retailers are of the mind that there isn’t enough foot traffic in the upper Morgan district to justify setting up shop there, unlike lower Morgan, Alaska and Admiral.

      I was disappointed, too, when I heard that offices would be going in there. However, my excitement about the coffee shop overrides any disappointment I had about a boring government bureaucracy offices going in that building, though. A restaurant or something would have been nice but a coffee shop three blocks away is going to be a huge quality of life improvement for me. Also, having more workers in the area will probably open the door for some restaurants or more interesting businesses.

        We’ve gotten a heck of a lot of working people moving into Highpoint/Morgan over the past 5-10 years and all we have to show for it is a coffee shop, with zip else for food shopping or restaurants in the pipeline.As a matter of fact, we had a thai food truck on 35th and Morgan a few months ago that recently decided not to hang around anymore—lack of business?  Lack of foot traffic…….with all these new residents moving in recently?  A thai food truck of all things in this thai crazy city that couldn’t do enough business?

          I meant workers like people who will actually be working in Highpoint, not just people with a job. There are very few jobs in Highpoint. There is the library, Neighborcare, a mechanics place, Walgreens and a couple of non-profits and a few other very small businesses. So not a lot of people spending money at lunch time or on their way home from work. I am not an expert on this, but my guess would be that that adding office space to the area will probably help support a restaurant of some kind because people at work have different consumption habits than people who are at home. We’ll see though.
