SWEET TOOTH? Two more West Seattle options soon

Many West Seattle options for sweet treats already, and the list is about to grow:

JET CITY BEIGNET: This new West Seattle business is kicking off sales of beignets and coffee with a pop-up this weekend:

We will be offering a limited number of beignet orders by the dozen and half-dozen for pick up this Sunday from 10 am-1 pm. We will also be selling our custom Jet City Blend coffee by Middle Fork Roasters and offering honey made by Seola Bees in West Seattle.

We are asking people to order and pre-pay directly from our website to reduce contact. We will be setting up a little table for pickup outside of the USI kitchen at 4611 36th Ave. SW.

THURSDAY NIGHT UPDATE: JCB tells us they are now sold out for this weekend.

GELATO RETURNS TO ALKI: If you haven’t already noticed this poster in the window at 2758 Alki SW …

… here’s the announcement explaining it:

Award-winning Medzo Gelato Bar, formerly Gelarto Italian Ice Cream, is returning to Alki for a summer pop-up on the beach. After departing their temporary Alki location in October of 2016, Gelarto relocated to Burien under the name Medzo, where they began producing hand-crafted Italian gelato and sorbet from scratch, one pan at a time. In Italy, owner-operators Fareed and Jennifer Al-Abboud were labeled fanatico for their insistence on the highest quality natural ingredients, and they proudly embraced that distinction. Their soft opening target date is May 5, five years to the day since they first opened on Alki. 1-9 pm daily.

Again, the new spot is NOT the same as their old location (now a preschool).

    Props to Jet City for adapting their payment system to the current situation.  Why do I still have to hand over my credit card and sign for a $2 donut at Top Pot?

      You shouldn’t have to sign anywhere for any purchase of any price.  Credit card companies stopped requiring signatures in 2018 and Amex stopped back in 2012.  Any merchant that requires you to sign is doing so for their own purposes – which is silly because there’s nothing they can actually do or prove with a signature.

      We’ve stopped by Top Pot 2x now during the social distancing and was baffled that they are having people sign the receipt. No option for mobile pay to limit contact/touching of shared surfaces. I want to support them but they need to adapt faster to the situation.

    Oh my goodness, this is truly the best news I have heard in a while. I cannot wait to have the beignets and  have been missing the gelato which I hadn’t understood why they disappeared!!!

    Happy to see Medzo back at Alki.  We’ve been going to Burien to get it there for a while.  BTW, they have a really cool T-shirt!I would love to try a beignet.  Never had one before 

Sorry, comment time is over.
