Adding to its Phinney Ridge and U-District cafes, Herkimer Coffee is opening a third location at 901 Dexter in South Lake Union. “We’re so excited,” Herkimer General Manager Kara Macdonald says. “It will be fantastic to be in that area with all its new developments.” In addition to SLU employees, Macdonald hopes the forthcoming Herkimer will serve as a pit stop for cyclists commuting downtown from Fremont or Wallingford. The cafe’s doors are scheduled to open in August.
