The Station plans to open a new Columbia City location
The Station, a popular coffee shop and community hub on Beacon Hill, plans to open a second location in Columbia City by the end of spring.
Why it matters: Co-owner Luis Rodriguez tells Axios his goal has always been to provide a place where people can meet their neighbors and beat the fabled Seattle Freeze. He has the same idea in mind for the Columbia City location.
- The Station is known for offering its space to small, up-and-coming vendors, organizing the Beacon Hill Block Party and hosting live music.
What they're saying: "The Station is more than a coffee shop," said Rodriguez, who co-owns the business with his wife, Leona Moore-Rodriguez.
- "My goal was to make a place where people are not just coming there for coffee, but they are coming there to meet their neighbors and their community."
Details: The new location will be right by the Columbia City light rail station at Martin Luther King Jr. Way S. and S. Alaska St., Rodriguez said.
- The space will be twice as large as the Beacon Hill location, he said.
- The menu will be the same, including brunch items such as breakfast sandwiches and chorizo biscuits and gravy — with possibly a few new items thrown in, Rodriguez said.
