Walter’s, the beloved cafe and ice creamery in Sunset Hill, will be closing its doors for good this week. Their last day of business will be this Friday from 6am to 9pm, and they’re throwing a big goodbye party on Saturday, Nov. 24.
The coffee shop at 6408 32nd Ave NW has been in business for nearly three decades, but this summer, property owner Gibraltar Investment Property Solutions gave Walter’s a notice to vacate. Their original vacate day was August 31, but the community wasn’t ready for that — they successfully bargained for a few extra months and now must be out by Nov. 30.
Their closing party will be a “kickass leftovers party”, scheduled for Saturday from noon to 9pm.
Owner Walter Pawelko told My Ballard earlier this summer that he has no plans to relocate.
No word yet on what will take its place — we hear that it may reopen as a restaurant. We’ll update with any new info.
