CD Businesses in the News

There’s a nice article in the Seattle Times today that talks coffee with three folks in & from the CD: Mezzaluna, and SOHO Coffee Company and Tougo. 

[Brian] Wells figures he conquered the economic odds two years ago, when he opened Tougo Coffee in an obscure, mostly vacant retail strip in the Central District. He has worked since 1992 for coffee shops in Seattle and Boston, saving enough to put $150,000 into opening his first coffeehouse.

People initially had to go out of their way to find Tougo, but it has become such a popular neighborhood hangout that Wells recently expanded the seating and children’s play areas.

Also check out the cool video about Mezzaluna, and make sure to get out and support our neighborhood businesses.
