Come hungry to Biscuit and Bean, Ballard’s one-stop-shop for biscuits, coffee and a very full meal

5905 15th Ave. N.W. (Ballard), Seattle; 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday-Sunday; 206-457-5735; biscuitandbean.biz

    Come hungry to Biscuit and Bean, Ballard's one-stop-shop for biscuits, coffee and a very full meal
    The biscuits here are weighty nuggets of carby, buttery goodness, and you'll need (and want) all the stomach space you can get. Share story It's really quite incredible how much power an approachable, reasonably-sized biscuit can punch. In breakfast-sandwich form, it doesn't look much different from, say, a thick English muffin.

That’s a total of four lots and four different 4-story, 21-unit apartment buildings. The Crown Hill Hardware site will have two side-by-side, and 7709 and 7711 15th Ave. NW will be the home of the other two (currently occupied by two houses.)

    Apartments slated for Crown Hill Hardware site and two other lots
    Since Crown Hill Hardware announced it was closing back in November - one of the longest-running businesses in North Seattle - we've been waiting to see what's planned for the property. Today plans were filed with the city to build apartments at both the Crown Hill Hardware site and the adjacent parking lot - and on two other lots on the same block, as well.

    Twenty months. That's how long Seattle has lead the Case-Shiller National Home Price Index, setting the record for the longest run atop the list, and breaking the previously held record (San Francisco right before the Dot-Com bubble popped). Yay?

Where will the Ballard light rail line go? Process enters next phase

You may remember Sound Transit’s first proposal — down 15th Ave., across a movable bridge to a station at 15th and Market — was countered by Ballard and Interbay businesses who said they’d be impacted by the traffic disruptions.

– Enter on 20th Ave., fixed bridge to 17th Ave. and Market

– Enter near Interbay railway, movable bridge to 14th and Market

    Where will the Ballard light rail line go? Process enters next phase
    Sound Transit has poured through community feedback and narrowed the list of alternatives for where to build the Ballard light rail line. Now Sound Transit has entered the next phase - called "level two" - as it works toward agreeing on a single route by early next year.

  • St. Alphonsus School reviewed by a parent

    My oldest child attended this school k-8 and said that it prepared her very well for her competitive academic private high school where she was able to place straight into honors math, English and science classes. She still goes back to visit her teachers. Meanwhile, we have experienced many years of a strong community that continues to be a bedrock of support for alumni as they reach college and beyond. The pastor is constructively involved in the school and deeply committed to its long term success and to the well being of the students.
