Welcome back to Eater News, a semi-regular round-up of mini news bites. Have info to share? Email intel to

  • Vegan cinnamon roll chain Cinnaholic debuts in Seattle in October when franchisees Trieva Katsandres and Maysaa Abouhamze open a Capitol Hill location next to Capitol Cider on E Pike St. Founders Shannon and Florian Radke successfully pitched ABC’s Shark Tank in 2014; the company website now lists 24 current or upcoming U.S. locations.
  • After 19 years on Bainbridge Island, Cafe Nola has closed, apparently unable to negotiate a new lease. Owners Kevin and Whitney Warren said in Facebook comments they’ll honor existing gift cards at their other Bainbridge restaurant, the Plate and Pint.
  • Like Renee Erickson and her Sea Creatures restaurants, co-op grocer PCC has ended sales of Pacific Northwest chinook salmon, in favor of certified-sustainable Alaskan chinook, in an effort to support endangered Southern resident killer whales in the Puget Sound.
  • A pizzeria called Coltiva opens September 29 at 350 1st Ave. W, in the relatively new Cora Queen Anne apartment building in Lower Queen Anne.
  • Loxsmith Bagels, which popped up in popular fashion at Montana on Capitol Hill this summer, is building out a Ballard production facility and walk-up window near the intersection of NW Ballard Way and NW Dock Place. It may open in spring 2019; meanwhile, owner Matthew Segal fulfills catering orders for his 48-hour-fermented bagels, in flavors like seaweed sesame, through Caviar.

Update: September 12, 2018, 11:40 a.m.
This article was updated to reflect that Cinnaholic won’t meet its anticipated opening date of October 1 but still hopes to open in October.
