Update: Storyville got in contact with us, but unfortunately our email system either flagged it as spam or just plain ate it. Regardless, here’s the scoop on when to expect things to happen at Boston & Queen Anne Ave N, mark your calendar for the beginning of 2014:
“Storyville Coffee is moving into the space at the corner of Boston and Queen Anne Ave N. We will be commencing our construction very soon and plan to open around the first of the year. We are very excited to be joining the community of Queen Anne and would like to invite the residents to visit our new location at Pike Place Market for a taste of what’s to come.”
Early yesterday morning I was headed down Queen Anne Ave, and finally! A sign of life at the old Teacup location at Boston and Queen Anne Ave N in the way of a new sign for Storyville Coffee Company.
I snapped some shots of the red Storyville logo, and fired off a couple of inquiry emails to Storyville when I returned home. I haven’t heard back yet, but in the meantime we’ve had several readers and other businesses send in tips about the Storyville sign.
Here’s the scoop on Storyville from its web site:
“Storyville Coffee Company was founded in 2006 as an e-commerce specialty coffee roaster and purveyor of coffee accessories. We passionately roast and ship coffee the same day, sending it direct to the doors of our customers from our Roasting Studio in Seattle, Washington. We ship to all 50 states and just about anywhere else in the world. Since the beginning, we have been obsessed with crafting the perfect cup of coffee, leading us to become designers and producers of our own line of coffee-making equipment, Storyville Hardware.”
The site doesn’t have any information on the Queen Anne location, but it does have highlight its first retail coffeebar set to open in Pike Place Market on October 1st.
Suffice to say, we’ve all been anxiously awaiting something to happen at the location. The Teacup has been closed since December 2011, and in May 2012 I sent a tip to the then-Editor of Queen Anne View about a new tenant (yes, before I wrote for Queen Anne View, I sent in tips).
If we get more information from Storyville or reader tips, we’ll let you know!
