Some Good News for The Bravern: A New Coffee Shop and Gelateria to Open

This week's cover story details the unfortunate timing of big-dreaming developers on the Eastside, specifically Schnitzer West, who launched an ultra-high-end luxury condo and retail development, The Bravern, just as Bellevue finally succumbed to the Great Recession.

But despite its struggles to sell condos and the departure of two high-profile restaurants after less than a year, The Bravern has managed to hang on. And today Schnitzer announced that it has signed a new tenant: Vovito Caffè & Gelato is set to open at the end of this month.

Like everything in The Bravern, Vovito aims for a more refined (and well-heeled) customer. In addition to the Italian version of ice cream (perhaps a small comfort to people still mourning the loss of the Dairy Queen on the former Bravern site), its baristas pull shots with the Slayer, aka, the Ferrari of espresso machines.

According to its website, Vovito is hiring for all positions at the cafe. Perhaps the scoop slinger can work out a deal with The Bravern where a down payment on a new condo is included in employees' compensation packages.
