CHS Pics | The Cookie Counter brings pink walls and sweet vegan treats to E Pike’s Gay City

Need an E Pike vegan treat? The Cookie Counter is now open on Capitol Hill inside Gay City.

CHS reported in June on the new partnership at the LGBTQ nonprofit’s headquarters that brings the Greenwood-born dessert shop and café for vegan pastries, cookies and ice cream to the 500 block of E Pike. “To be in that space will be nostalgic for us,” Chelsea Keene, who co-founded The Cookie Counter with her husband Chris Olson, told CHS in June. “When Chris and I lived on the hill, the previous Kaladi Brothers Coffee space at Gay City was our favorite coffee shop.”

You can now find Kaladi Brothers down the street where it has returned to its overhauled original Capitol Hill home.

Meanwhile, there has been plenty of Capitol Hill-area cookie news. 19th Ave E’s Hello Robin announced expansion plans in University Village and Lowrider Baking joined the food and drink scene developing around 23rd and Union’s new construction.

E Pike will also be getting some new sweets later this summer. Half and Half Doughnut Co. from Top Pot founder Michael Klebeck is expected to open this month.

The Cookie Counter Capitol Hill is located inside Gay City at 517 E Pike. Learn more at seattlecookiecounter.com.
