WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Coffee stand damaged by burglars

10:09 AM: The photos show the exterior and interior views of the damage West Bay Coffee and Smoothies had to deal with this morning after an early-morning burglary.

The drive-up/ride-up/walk-up stand is at 2255 Harbor Avenue SW. We’re following up to see if anything was taken that people could be on the lookout for.

12:14 PM: They’ve confirmed that the stand is open today – just had to start the day with a major cleanup.

    That’s awful! Please let us know when they are up and running again so we can stop by to support. They are such nice folks!

    So sorry 😐. Crime is running wild with seemingly no deterrent on consequencesOur wonderful local small businesses do NOT need this.  Please do a drive by coffee soon to help support them!

    That’s sad and maddening. So sorry West Bay. :(

    I just hope they had security cameras rolling overnight. Having motion sensor enabled, those types of cameras are inexpensive and can go a long way towards an investigation.

    Thank you to all whom messaged, stopped by and showed us support. We really thank the community for being such a great support system, we wouldn’t be able to continue this long without all the love! October will be our 13th anniversary! We are a close family at West Bay and we will conquer these new challenges we’ve had to be accustomed too. Even though we don’t like it…Thank you all!Jennifer, Erin, Bella, Maddie and Cassie 💕

    Not good. I stopped by on my morning run and knocked on the window to let her know she has the support of the community. Tough to drink coffee on a literal run but I will drive by later and provide a little more support.

    20 some years ago I owned a coffee house on Harbor Avenue and it was broken into by  smashing  out the front window… so I had earthquake film applied to my new window and lo and behold they came back and tried again by trying to throw a huge boulder through the window and the earthquake film prevented them from getting into the building again! I highly recommend it and it’s not visible to the naked eye
