In the final days of 2019, we told you about plans for The Missing Piece to bring games, coffee, and more to 35th/Roxbury. Proprietors Lauren and Alex hoped to open in spring … but the pandemic delayed that plan. Nonetheless, they continued working on the space, and tomorrow, they finally open! Here’s the announcement:

Hello, West Seattle and beyond. We are proud and excited after months and months of hard work and planning your home away from home, we will be passing go and opening our doors in the coming days.

On September 30th at 8:00 AM, The Missing Piece will welcome its first visitors with smiles, coffee in the air, warm pastries in the case, and comfortable seating for all of your hobbies.

We are thrilled to be able to offer the greater Seattle area respite from their busy lives to take a moment to be in the moment. Whether this is sipping coffee, watching the clouds roll by through our beautiful windows, or enjoying your loved ones while playing a board game.

Also worth noting: we are going above and beyond to ensure that The Missing Piece is following all city, state, and federal COVID guidelines to promote safety, sanitation, and cleanliness throughout your entire stay with us.

The Missing Piece is a cafe with locally-sourced coffees, teas, and pastries. We provide an all-inclusive, welcoming environment where one can relax, play board games, read a book, and simply feel at home. Swing by to pick up your favorite drink and/or snack. Or make a table reservation on our website to enjoy one of our many games. We thank you for supporting us and being on this journey from the beginning.

To our friends and neighbors: thank you, we are excited to be a part of the community, and we will see you all very soon.

Before The Missing Piece, the space was home to a medical-marijuana dispensary.

    Resident near 32nd and Roxbury here — so excited to see a new game-playing space after Uptown on Delridge gave up on the idea. Congrats on the opening!

    Rough time to start a business but that intersection needs something like this. Will try to stop by and pick up a new game and some breakfast.

    Just curious – when initially announced it was said that “local craft coffee, tea, beer and wine” would be offered – is the beer/wine still in the works? 

    • The Missing Piece September 30, 2020 (12:25 pm)

      We will totally be offering beer and wine, but are waiting till after COVID is over for that step.
