Welcome Back Huxdotter
Much to the delight of North Bend residents and coffee fans, longtime business – Huxdotter Coffee – is back open. Well, at least the new drive-thru is open. According to the Huxdotter Facebook page, the drive-thru is open 5AM – 7PM. [The new interior cafe has not opened yet, but we’ll keep you posted on when that might happen.]
The Huxdotter transformation happened faster than some other Snoqualmie Valley construction projects. The old 200 sq. ft. coffee stand and neighboring car wash were demolished back in December and the project appears to have moved forward with very little, if any delays.
As we told you earlier, Huxdotter will not occupy the entire new building, but the interior cafe will have over fifty seats – ranging from couches to barstool window seats. There’s also a decent sized outdoor patio for customers to enjoy coffee, tea, beer or wine outside during the summer months.
The improved drive-thru window will also allow for a much longer queue of cars (close to 20) off the public street, pre-ordering and faster service times.
In December Huxdotter said the cafe will also offer local beers on tap, wine, kombucha, hard cider, nitro cold brew and other specialty beverages as well as updated menu. There will also be expanded food menu with house-made breakfast items, pastries and baked goods, lunch sandwiches, soups, and small plates to compliment beer and wine in the evenings.
Wildflower Bistro Reopens
Just a few blocks away on North Bend Way, Wildflower Bistro re-opened after relocating from the old fire station on 2nd Street.
Wildflower moved back to its original small space near Pioneer Coffee and added a fenced outdoor patio area, too.
According to their website, “Wildflower Bistro is dedicated to cultivating a passion for locally sourced Washington wine, spirits and cuisine. We feature a full food menu using local, fresh produce & organically raised meats that complements our drink selections and our casually elegant setting.”
The restaurant is open Tuesday – Sunday from 4:30PM – 9:30PM, per its website. See the Wildflower Bistro menu HERE.
