It’s not quite the return of B&O Espresso, but Ballard-born Hot Cakes is ready to open its new Capitol Hill cakery:
Join us this Monday in celebration of our brand new Capitol Hill Cakery! All of your favorite organic desserts will be in tow including some new additions; soft serve, smoked chocolate magic shell and an outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows. Grab a (boozy) shake glass and help us cheers to making the Hill just a lil’ bit sweeter!
It also happens to be National S’mores Day so we will be roasting our signature s’mores (smoked chocolate, house-made mallow, & buttery graham crackers) around the fire pit all evening!
Like most food+drink openings, there’s a chance you might wander into an early preview over the weekend. If not, save your chocolate and marshmallow appetite for Monday.
Last September, CHS wrote about the expansion of Autumn Martin’s sweet shop onto Capitol Hill in the Zephyr Apartments building that now rises six-stories above where the longtime favorite B&O stood from 1976 to 2012. The Seattle area native said the location’s B&O history was important to her. “I remember going there late at night and having cake and thinking of it as a late night spot though I’m pretty sure I wasn’t 21,” Martin told CHS last year.
In the meantime, we saw workers putting finishing touches on the new fire pit earlier this week.
