Today’s Seattle Times has an in-depth article on the preparations to reopen the Green Bean Coffeehouse. The Green Bean was one of four businesses destroyed in the Oct. 23 arson. Shortly after that, the Green Bean temporarily took over coffee operations at the Greenwood Sip & Ship. Green Bean is now renovating the former McDonald’s building at 8533 Greenwood Ave. N.
The opening has been pushed back because of construction permitting delays. When I stopped in to check on construction last week, Green Bean staff said they were now aiming for a July 10 opening.
