New coffeehouse opens in town

The new cafe Aster just opened its doors on Saturday, right across from the new NoMa condos on 24th and 57th. It’s owned by an eight-year Ballard resident, Beth Scribner. I stopped by this morning, and I have to say, the coffee is very good. And Scribner was quite to point out that she’s the only coffeehouse in Ballard to have a Clover, which is a single-cup coffee brewer that’s all the rage these days (and it’s made right here in Ballard. Well, Frelard.) Aster also serves beer and wine, and the WiFi (which is getting installed today) will be free.

As people move into NoMA and the new “Ballard on the Park,” which is under construction nearby, I think it’s a safe prediction to say Aster will become a popular Ballard hangout. (Thanks, Mazz for the tip!)
