‘Staple & Fancy’ sidewalk cafe approved

One of Ballard’s newest dining options is hoping to cash in on what’s left of summer.  Staple and Fancy Mercantile has just been approved for a sidewalk cafe.  The restaurant is named for a newly-exposed old brick wall (pictured below) in the Kolstrand building (4742 Ballard Ave).  “Staple and Fancy” is the latest in a long line of restaurants run by chef Ethan Stowell.

Jesus how much are they paying you? How many more times are you going to give this overrated restaurant more publicity.

I am sick & tired of all these places opening for only dinner and no lunch. Many people like me take their largest meal during the noon-2:00 p.m. hours and are either working or at home in the evenings. There are lots of places I would try, if they were only open during mid-day hours. Not everyone is a night owl, and some work evening shifts!

Cool. A little more vibrancy to the far end of Ballard Ave.

It seems like just about every other place adding sidewalk seating got a post of their own as well. Even the widely loathed Azteca got press. It feels unlikely to me that Staple and Fancy (which I found to be quite tasty) is getting special treatment.

Too bad the sidewalk seating is landing just as the summer ends!

I just heard that Ethan and Chad Dale from the Kolstrand Building are planning on opening a Hamburger joint in the area as well – that would be incredible and another great addition to Ballard (fingers crossed)…
