A new coffee shop at Shilshole Bay Marina is marking its official grand opening this Saturday.
Jibe Espresso Bar (7001 Seaview Ave NW Ste 170) will be offering free samples of their breakfast and lunch sandwiches, and the opportunity to meet Executive Chef Rachel Moore as well as their roaster, Keith M. Miller from Red E Coffee. Those who sign up for the espresso bar’s loyalty card program will also receive special grand opening parks.
“Meet our phenomenal barista and culinary staff, experience pour overs with our selection of coffees and teas and indulge in our ice cream beverages and pastries,” reads a event post from Jibe on Facebook.
Jibe is the only coffee shop at any of the Port of Seattle marina properties, and is the lone coffee shop within a one mile radius of Shilshole Bay Marina. The coffee shop is working on a menu that offers not only espresso beverages and sandwiches, but fresh baked pastries and soups as well. Owner Roland Rodriguez and his wife are liveaboards at the marina, and are emphasizing sustainability in their operations.
The shop opens at 6 a.m., with festivities running from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
