Starbucks sayonara




The flurry of speculation has come to an end as Starbucks released the official list of the 600 locations closing in the US. One of the 19 Washington and 7 Seattle locations to go? The recent addition to Wallingford at 45th and Stone Way. Of course we can still get coffee without leaving 45th St at the Starbucks location less than half a mile east, or at the Tully's on 45th and Meridian, at Fuel on 45th and Densmore, at Diva Espresso on Stone and 46th, in QFC...

What could Wallingford use in the soon-to-be-empty commercial space? Discuss in the comments. My vote is for a Than Brothers Pho restaurant I can easily walk to on freezing raining days, but that may be wishful thinking.

I was just thinking the neighborhood was lacking a Pho place... anything would be welcome, as long as its not another Thai place ^_^

I'd like to see a toy store.

Don't forget Mosaic! I love it there. Right behind Dick's.

I second a toy store and Pho.

I agree: NOT Thai, and Pho would be
so lovely this winter

Me too: phở phở phở!

How can we actualize this groundswell of support for phở into a tasty phở restaurant?

Does anyone know why Loki Cafe has closed? I just moved here and had been looking forward to trying it, but it has been closed for about two weeks now.
