Seattle Coffee Works Owner Sebastian Simsch announced on Facebook yesterday that he had signed a lease for the shuttered Tully's on Market Street in Old Ballard. Simsch has long coveted this location, as a possible expansion site for his roastery/cafe business. So, when Tully's decided to close some stores earlier this year, in the midst of disappointing financial results and the Market Street location became available, Simsch was able to take advantage. The new location will be called fitting enough Ballard Coffee Works.
