A cafe and specialty market is now open on NW 65th St.
Mainstay Provisions has moved into the former Sneakery location (612 NW 65th St).
The owners are Thom Koschwanez and Ashley Thompson, a Crown Hill couple who both hail from Seattle. Thom has a culinary background — he’s worked in Ethan Stowell restaurants for seven years. Ashley grew up in Ballard and attended Ballard High School.
Thom says that the cafe will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, either to eat in-house or to-go. They say the specialty market will sell seasonal house-made and retail items, with a highlight on local produce.
Their hours will be Monday to Friday, 7am to 7pm, and open 7am to 2pm on weekends. Thom says that they plan to use the space for events, pop-ups and classes when not open.
