Tony’s Coffee Bar celebrates grand opening Friday

November 27th, 2012 · Comments

Tony’s Coffee Bar has been open at 7001 3rd Avenue NW for several months, but it will finally celebrate with a grand opening party from 7-10 p.m. Friday.

Tony’s Coffees & Teas is a Bellingham-based company. It opened its coffee “lab” here last spring, then expanded into a full coffee bar late this summer. It just added pastries to the menu: cookies, coconut bread and muffins.

Friday’s party will feature refreshments, and readings from local writers Len Kuntz, Patrick McKay, Ross McMeekin and Robert Kaye. Customers can also get a free shot of espresso all day long.

    It’s great to have another coffee bar in the neighborhood. (Yeah, we already have 20 or 30 shops, but hey, what’s one more?) Tony’s has actually been a player in the Seattle coffee scene for quite awhile. Until Caffe Ladro began roasting their own beans several months back, Tony’s was their supplier. Organic, fair trade, shade grown. It’s gooood coffee.

    I’m sure their coffee is awesome and everything, but I feel like we would benefit from some more diverse restaurants and food suppliers (a bakery, a butcher that specializes in charcuterie).

    I thought there was already a chocolate shop on 65th and 3rd that also specialized in coffee / tea?
