North Bend’s Huxdotter Coffee consturction underway

Huxdotter Coffee is in the midst of construction on an all new cafe and drive-thru.

One of the Valley’s long running businesses, Huxdotter Coffee, is undergoing construction of an all new building.

North Bend’s Huxdotter Coffee, located at 101 West Park St., started in 1990 and has operated from a 200 square foot drive-thru location. The new building is planned at 3,585 square feet and will replace the previous location, as well as the adjacent car wash at the corner of Park Street and Main Avenue.

The coffee company’s operation will only take up 1,815 square feet of space in the building, leaving the remaining area to be leased to additional tenants.

The construction of the building broke ground on Dec. 17, 2018, after two years of planning, and was designed by the architecture firm BCRA. According to a press release form the city of North Bend, the business plans to be open by June 2019.

Designed by restaurant supply and design company Bargreen Ellingson, the new cafe space will have more than 50 indoor seats and an outdoor patio.

The business will retain a drive-thru, but with an expanded waiting lane to keep traffic off of the road. Huxdotter also plans to offer more food items for breakfast and lunch. In an email repsonse, Huxdotter owner Jeremy Westlake said the business has partnered with Tiger and Stripe Coffee Company to develop their own cofee roasting program and will include new coffee offerings in addition to current roasts.

As part of preparation for the opening of the new building, Huxdotter will begin accepting applications for new positions to work alongside returning staff. More information on Huxdotter and applications for new positions are online at
