The Wayward Coffeehouse officially opened its doors yesterday at in the old Science, Art, and More (*sniff*, we still miss you!) location on the corner of NE 65th Street and Roosevelt Way.
As you may remember the Wayward Coffeehouse is originally from Greenwood, where it was the home of the Seattle Browncoats (fans of the short-lived Joss Whedon TV series, ‘Firefly‘). They’ve been closed since last fall when their building sustained damage from an electrical fire in neighboring business. (The Browncoats took up temporary shelter at another Roosevelt establishment, Cafe Racer.)
The drinks are as unique as the culture they embrace. There’s the Muad’dib Latte, a Dune-inspired ginger, apple, cinnamon latte, the Iocane Latte, which contains iocane powder (we hope you’ve built up a tolerance) and vanilla, and the Kobayashi Maru (seen below, courtesy of the CookLocal blog), which Wayward’s owner, Bronwyn tells us is a latte with hints of orange and blackberry.
In addition to making some damn fine coffee, the sci-fi themed cafe offers a wide array of sammiches and other nibbles. The space is huge, there’s free wi-fi, and there are plenty of large tables for playing games and sofas for relaxin’. Lots of events planned, too, including the First Friday Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film night with no cover charge.
Their grand opening shindig is set for this Saturday, November 5th at 7:00 PM. Local folk duo Vixy and Tonywill be on-hand to soft-rock us with a live performance.
Stop by and welcome the Wayward Coffeehouse to our corner of the ‘verse!
