Slate Coffee Roasters now has a brick-and-mortar at 6th and Market in Ballard. The Airstream Café still runs at 14th and Madison, Wed-Sun 8 am to 2 pm. For now, the Coffee Bar will be open on the same days, but with expanded hours from 7 am to 4 pm.
The Slate team says:
At the coffee bar, guests can expect coffee, yes, but coffee that is perhaps done a little differently than what Seattle is used to. Instead of the traditional Italian menu, Slate features a modern menu of Espresso Neat, Espresso with Milk (4oz, 6oz, or 8oz) and Hand Brewed Coffee. Coffees featured on our menu are sourced from various farms throughout the tropics, chosen for their pronounced sweetness, acidity and complexity.
The Slate Coffee Bar opened quietly yesterday morning.
