West Seattle, Washington
First, two reopenings:
REALFINE COFFEE: Proprietor Julie reopened the shop in The Triangle today, for takeout. Realfine will be open 7 am-1 pm, Wednesdays-Sundays, closed Mondays-Tuesdays. (4480 Fauntleroy Way SW)
NEW LUCK TOY: Now open for takeout (food and drinks)/delivery (food only), 4 pm-9 pm daily. Order online or by phone, 206-913-2505. (5905 California SW)
And a followup:
REBELLYOUS NUGGETS AVAILABLE IN WEST SEATTLE: We noted last month that the “plant-based ‘chicken’ nuggets” startup in The Triangle was starting to sell retail, but at the time, no West Seattle outlet. That’s just changed – Rebellyous tells WSB that Wildwood Market in Fauntleroy (9214 45th Ave SW) is now carrying their nuggets.
Thanks to Andy for the photo. The latest standalone Starbucks store to reopen in the area is the Admiral shop (41st SW/Admiral Way), which has been remodeled during its closure. “We are remodeled and brand new!! We are excited to have customers come back and see the new store!!” says Sarah. … Other food/beverage changes: You can now get food from Easy Street Café 7 am-3 pm, 7 days a week … Falafel Salam has updated hours too … all those changes are on our ongoing West Seattle food/beverage list (thanks again to everyone who keeps sending word of updates, firstname.lastname@example.org or text 206-293-6302).

Another West Seattle food-and-beverage business has launched in defiance of the coronavirus crunch.
You might know him already for his music, with the band Mercy Parker. Eventually, he hopes you’ll know him for a restaurant with a full bar, once COVID-19 is past – a tapas-style menu with craft cocktails and craft beer. But for now, “We have an amazing, dynamic, and fun waffle menu, plus great coffee and espresso.” (Scroll down this page to see that menu.)
The coffee is from K&F Roasters out of Portland – the award-winning Café Jondo, an organic fair-trade blend of African and South American coffees.
Current hours at The Spot are 6:30 am-4 pm weekdays, 7 am-4 pm Saturdays, 8 am-4 pm Sundays. (Post-pandemic, they’ll have evening hours too.)
More updates to our ongoing list of West Seattle restaurants and beverage businesses open for your food/drink pickup and/or delivery needs: Two more coffee shops. This past Monday, C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) reopened, and today we heard from two more coffee shops – Olympia Coffee (3840 California SW) also reopened on Monday, we learned today, 7 am-5 pm daily. And we got word that Uptown Espresso in The Junction (California/Edmunds) plans to reopen next Monday (May 11th), with hours 8 am-3 pm.
Also, if your favorite restaurant has a full liquor license, you might soon be able to get a takeout pre-mixed cocktail with your food, if they choose to take advantage of this newly announced state rule change.
Updates for our list? firstname.lastname@example.org or text 206-293-6302 – thank you!

We are very excited to announce that we are opening our doors – well, windows – on Monday, May 4th. Our new hours of operation will be 8 am to 4pm.
We will be offering delicious espresso drinks and whole bean coffee from Lighthouse Roasters as well as to-go Beer and Wine selections (21 and older).
To reinforce social distancing, we are operating through the back window of the coffee shop, for take-away only. There is easy access in the alley between Juneau and Findlay streets.
While we were closed, we took some extra measures, and a lot of elbow grease, to improve our methods of operation to keep us all healthy and to ensure the safety of our friends and our employees.
We can’t wait to see all of our neighbors and friends over the coming weeks as we reconnect with our amazing community.
C & P is at 5612 California SW; its alley entrance is just south of Findlay.
Two notes as we continue updating our West Seattle (etc.) list of restaurants/beverage businesses:
ANOTHER REOPENING: The Bridge in Morgan Junction (6301 California SW) has reopened for takeout/delivery, 4 pm to 9 pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays.
WHAT’S UP FOR MOTHER’S DAY? The special day for moms is a week and a half away (Sunday, May 10th), and we’re getting questions about whether anyone’s planning a special menu. If your venue is – or if you’ve seen an announcement – please let us know (email@example.com, text 206-293-6302, or in comments) – thank you!
We’ve been keeping a list of local restaurants and beverage businesses since the day after the governor’s March 15th order closed them all to dine-in/drink-in customers, and we’ve continued to update the list as we get word from the businesses and/or customers. The 140+ businesses on the list are mostly West Seattle, with a few in White Center and South Park (you might be going that way for the alternate bridge!). Two additions today – Ma’ono is reopening for takeout/delivery, and Uncle Eddie’s (in South Park, owned by West Seattleites) has just reopened too. Got any other update/changes/additions/etc.? firstname.lastname@example.org is the best way to get them to us – thank you!
(P.S. The list is findable any time in two fixed spots on WSB – the “Spotlight Stories” box on most home-page displays, or the RESTAURANT LIST on the WSB menu across all devices.)
Two more business updates – both from the adult-beverage business. irst, from longtime WSB sponsor Viscon Cellars:
We are not open our regular hours due to our mandated inability to conduct tastings; however, we can sell bottles for home consumption.
All of our current wines are available to order on our website Visconcellars.com. Customers can place their orders and I will personally deliver..Within reason :)
Otherwise customers can have the wines shipped to them via UPS if they are outside of the Seattle area.
I am thankful to our community for coming together to support small business and helping us all learn and grow from this experience, which allows us to remain close, while we are apart.
I have spoken with many of my peers in the wine business and restaurants and even retailers that are thankful to live in this community where we can all lean on and support one another.
And a launch announcement – Whisky Business, LLC:
Hankering for something fun, interesting, and “adult” to do during quarantine? Local Certified Scotch Professional and West Seattle resident Christian Skoorsmith comes to the rescue. A perfect date-night with your quarantine partner, or even a fun solo diversion, you receive a flight of Scotch samples delivered to your door, and a group of “attendees” meets online for a professionally-led tasting: a couple hours of tasting notes, techniques, history, ecology, terroir, the whole gambit. Everything you need to deepen your enjoyment of Scotch, and taste like a professional.
Skoorsmith is the Chair of the Seattle Single-malt Society, and has been leading Scotch Tastings locally for more than a year. In the wake of Coronavirus closures and social distancing, he decided to extend the experience to a broader audience online, and pivoted his exclusive in-person events to virtual tastings. He offers a number of set “tours”: an introduction to Scotch (touring the major whisky regions of Scotland), leveling up your tasting game, a tour of specific regions: Islay, the Highlands, Speyside, and a tour of historic blends. Tastings typically last an hour and-a-half to two and-a-half hours, depending on the number of samples and the level of instruction/information desired.
Got a business update? email@example.com – thanks!
This is now the third week that we’ve been updating the original West Seattle (etc.) list of restaurants and other food/beverage businesses open for takeout and/or delivery. We just updated three more listings thanks to proprietors and readers, and added one. Tens of thousands of readers have used the list, so we appreciate your help in catching changes (anything from new hours to online ordering to reopenings and closures) – firstname.lastname@example.org or text 206-293-6302 – thank you!
(WSB file photo)
C & P Coffee Company (longtime WSB sponsor) has decided to close for now, almost two weeks after the governor’s order to close restaurants/beverage businesses aside from takeout/delivery. Co-proprietors Cameroon and Pete Moores sent us their announcement, which spotlights a way for the community to help their staff:
Dear Friends and Neighbors
It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to temporarily close the coffee house. We feel that it is the best way to support our community and keep our customers and employees safe.
We have established a Go-FundMe “Tip Jar” for our hard working baristas who are most affected by this.
Here is the link if you would like to contribute.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out through Facebook or e-mail: email@example.com.
We will update the website with any additional news:
We will miss you during our closure but know that we plan on opening up our doors as soon as possible. We will continue to be a community hub of arts, music and conversation. A place where neighbors can share a cup of coffee, support a cause, and a whole lot of joy and laughter.
Our doors may be closed for now but our hearts are open.
With so much love and gratitude,
Cam and Pete
If you are new – C & P Coffee has a unique backstory; two years ago, the property’s owners put it on the market as a potential redevelopment site; with community support, the Moores bought it, two years ago this month.
We are continuing to update the West Seattle restaurant/beverages list as changes come in.
As noted when the governor issued the “stay home” order, food and beverage businesses CAN stay open for takeout and delivery – they’re considered “essential.” So we are continuing to update the West Seattle list (see it here) we launched eight days ago, right after the governor ordered an end to dine-in/sit-down service. Already this week, we’ve had a few more closures, and a reopening. Please help us keep this updated – whether you are a business owner/staffer or customer, if you have a change/addition, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 206-293-6302 – thank you!
That’s the sign on the door at the West Seattle Junction Starbucks, one of the stores now closed because the company’s gone (mostly) drive-through for at least a few weeks, as explained here. The only two drive-throughs in our area are Fauntleroy/Avalon and White Center (16th/100th). But there are other walkup coffee shops near most of the shuttered stores, such as:
MORGAN JUNCTION – Youngstown Coffee Co. (north), Caffe Ladro (south)
ALKI – Top Pot (next door), Ampersand (east)
ADMIRAL – Freshy’s (southwest), West Seattle Grounds (northwest)

Get links/addresses to most of those coffee shops (and others that are open in other WS areas!) via our frequently updated restaurants/beverage-businesses list. (Who’s missing but open? Let us know – email@example.com!)
NOTE: Again, the mentions above are ONLY THE COFFEE SHOPS CLOSEST TO SHUTTERED STARBUCKS STORES – West Seattle has MANY others still open and most of them are in our food/beverage-biz list. (If they’re not, tell them to send us info ASAP!)
(Updated 12:20 pm 6/3 – all subject to change at any time; send updates if you have them! Closed restaurants are NOT listed unless they were shuttered after initially being open when we started this list.)
With the orders closing restaurants and beverage businesses except for pickup/delivery, many asked for a list of West Seattle establishments that are offering their food/beverages that way.

7:56 AM: Since last night’s announcement that food/beverage places have to close unless they can offer pickup/delivery, we’ve had lots of requests to publish a list of who in West Seattle will be doing that. We started checking websites and social-media channels for local establishments but that’s taking a lot of time and (understandably) not everyone has updated. So we’re asking for YOUR help – if you have a restaurant or coffee/beverage business, please send us your info – or if you’ve seen info, let us know! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, text or call 206-293-6302, or comment below – thank you!
10:16 AM: Thanks for the help. We’re still building this and right after the governor/executive’s briefing (now set for 11 am), we’ll publish what we have, and keep adding to it.
8:06 PM FRIDAY: Announced today – a chance to help The Admiral District‘s beverage businesses stay afloat:
These last few weeks have been really tough for a lot of local businesses in the Admiral Junction. Here is your chance to help out. This Sunday, March 15th, join us for a bar crawl to support your favorite local businesses. Each of these businesses will be running drink specials and food specials.
5 pm – The Nook
5:30 pm – Yen Wor (in the bar in the back)
6 pm – Admiral Pub
6:30 pm – Arthur’s
7 pm – Mission Cantina
7:30 pm – Copper Coin
8 pm – Parliament Tavern
8:30 pm – Circa
If you can’t join us for the bar crawl, please try and stop by on Sunday to one of these businesses, and if you can’t stay, you can always buy gift cards. Any amount of support would be greatly appreciated from all your favorite bartenders, servers, cooks, dishwashers, and barbacks in the Admiral Junction.
Starting point The Nook is at 2206 California SW.
ADDED 11:15 AM SATURDAY: The proprietors have just told us this is off, after they discussed further and agreed the “social distancing” recommendations might be tough to meet.
Looking for someplace to go tonight? You can help Best of Hands Brewery and Barrelhouse (7500 35th SW; WSB sponsor) finish celebrating their 1st anniversary. As noted in our daily highlight lists, one year after Best of Hands opened in “the building with the cow,” the party’s been on all weekend with new releases.
Today’s draft release is Three Kingdoms, described as a “cabernet sauvignon BBL aged sour ale with apricots.” Here’s the current list of what’s available – that includes canned beverages:
They’re open until 10 tonight. P.S. If you can’t get there until tomorrow – note that Best of Hands has Monday night trivia, 7-9 pm.
Caveat from the Box Bar team – that’s just the menu they’re starting with – still a work in progress. Hours are 4 pm to midnight, Tuesdays through Sundays, closed Mondays.
That’s a look inside what was Bird on a Wire and is now The Birdhouse (3507 SW Henderson) – a new name and new owners, after longtime proprietor Heidi Herr sold the coffeehouse to Amber Heinemann (below left) and Todd Fregin.
Todd and Amber (who’s with team member Ellie in the photo) own Fremann Foods, known for catering and “grab and go” food like sandwiches. You can enjoy sitdown or takeout at The Birdhouse:
We photographed their breakfast menu (here) and lunch menu (here). No changes in hours (7 am-4 pm). As for the shop’s founder and now former owner Heidi, her social-media announcement of the sale said she wasn’t sure where she was headed next but, “I feel very proud of what I have built and it has truly been an honor to live/thrive in this neighborhood since 2002.” The shop originally was in a different space on the 35th/Henderson corner, facing 35th.
Two years after Tap Station closed at 35th/Kenyon, the next tenant is working to overhaul the space. Readers have noted the work going on, and today we finally found someone there who confirmed to us that – as suggested in permit files – it’ll be a new branch of Realfine Coffee. Julie Mierzwiak opened Realfine at 4480 Fauntleroy Way SW in fall 2015, and added a Capitol Hill shop a year and a half ago. We’re told the work on the new shop is proceeding relatively slowly, so it’s still likely months away from opening.
