The Starbucks-leased space where Tully’s was bumped off Broadway will be…
The coffee and other beverages that cost more than $3 giant has confirmed its plans to open a store at the bustling corner of Broadway and E Pike.
CHS reported that the global caffeine dominator was taking over the space for purposes untold earlier this year. It could have been an Evolution Fresh. It could have been a Teavana. It could have been a Seattle’s Best Coffee.
Instead, come “in or around May,” the former Broadway State Bank building will be home a “Clover Reserve” style Starbucks store serving Starbucks favorites and reserve coffees. We’re told all Capitol Hill stores are the special “Clover Reserve” variety of Starbuckses. “You have a pretty savvy palette up there,” we’re told.
A Starbucks spokesperson said she has no information yet on whether the new joint will serve beer or wine. While the days of indie-styled Starbucks cafes on Capitol hill are over, the design of the new store is intended to be “pretty locally relevant.”
The Pike at Broadway Starbucks will be the
second third formal store for the Seattle-based company on Broadway and fourth outlet on the stretch if you count the Starbucks kiosks nestled inside the QFCs.
Now we just need to nail down that Capitol Hill McDonald’s rumor.
