According to a recent permit filing, Snapdragon will come to the west side of Seattle at 4217 SW Oregon St.
“Snapdragon West Seattle will be opening its doors around the end of February or beginning of early March. It’s hard to give an exact date as of right now. Construction and painting are beginning now! As we are in the thick of winter and planning the interior, we are thinking of bold and optimistic colors to cozy your eyes. The walls will be a warm French green with black and white checkered flooring,” co-owner Megan Hastings told What Now Seattle.
“In usual Snapdragon fashion, the decor will be mostly reclaimed or thrifted items, which certainly helps validate some of our thrift store addiction. Also in that spirit, we will be offering our signature rustic and giant pastries. Everything hand made, with savory options, bread, soups, espresso, beer and wine, and bubbles of course!”
“We are planning to have the cafe open in the evening as well! Tavern style with beer and wine and small plates. Finding the space was truly by chance. My husband, Adam Cone and I were out on an off-island date when we passed the old Bellevue Rare coin shop, and it was empty. I said, “Wow turn around, let’s go see it!” Our business partner Chris Calori came to see the space and was fully on board.”
“The location is perfect and the size is manageable. We quickly met with the lovely directors of the West Seattle Senior Center. They had already known of Snapdragon and were enthusiastic about the team up in the building. The process with them has been welcoming and smooth.”
“We are thrilled to be a part of it and getting to know the people who both frequent the center and the neighborhood. During the pandemic, so many people from West Seattle took day trips out to Vashon, so we naturally got to meet and know so many people from the experience. So saying that we are elated to come to West Seattle would be an understatement!”
Snapdragon’s “About” section on the website states, “Adam Cone and Megan Hastings opened Snapdragon Bakery & Cafe in February of 2012. Since opening, Chris Calori, a long-time baker-friend, has joined them as part of the family, bringing his humor and hard work to the mix.”
“They have since expanded to include the Home Sweet Home bar, a favorite hangout for locals and island visitors, and they also own the Mermaid Market at the north-end ferry dock, as well as a new Snapdragon location in West Seattle.”
Snapdragon is stated to provide “rustic pastries, vegetarian cuisine, catering, and wedding cakes. In addition to our selection of seasonal fruit danishes, cheese rolls, huge cookies, raspberry oat bars, and croissants, we now have beautiful donuts!”
“Made with croissant dough, our donuts come in a variety of flavors and combinations – maple, chocolate, vanilla, cardamom-orange, cinnamon and sugar, and more! Our bakers are always coming up with exciting new combinations.”
“We are delighted to serve fresh, vegetarian cuisine, with a Mediterranean focus. Our soups, breakfast, and lunch entrees change daily. We serve espresso, our secret recipe chai, as well as drip coffee. Try our mimosa, peach bellini, fancy bloody mary, hot toddy, Irish coffee, wine, or beer – available any time.”
