Pegasus Coffee to open new location for the first time in 16 years
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA – It was a windy Tuesday afternoon on Winslow Way as people looked to the sky in shock to see a 1950’s coffee trailer dangling from the grasps of a giant crane.
“What is that?” they proclaimed, as crowds gathered along the street. “It looks like a trailer!” a woman called out in excitement. As the wind picked up and the crane began to turn, the Pegasus Coffee Company logo came into view, and the Pegasus flag waved proudly.
Pegasus Coffee Company is thrilled to announce their newest and second location on Bainbridge Island, WA. The first Pegasus Coffee retail outlet to open since 2005. This new quick-service coffee bar will operate out of a converted 1950’s Boles Areo trailer, serving grab-and-go food, hot and cold coffee, and espresso beverage classics similar to its original Bainbridge Island location, the Pegasus Coffee House. The Pegasus Coffee Trailer will be located on the plaza of the Orchard Building at 380 Winslow Way East, in the heart of the Island’s retail district and less than half a mile from the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal. It will include outdoor cafe seating for locals and visitors alike to enjoy freshly baked pastries, lively conversation, and of course, great-tasting coffee. The Coffee Trailer will be open on weekdays from 6 am to 2 pm, and on weekends from 8 am to 4 pm.
The new outdoor cafe will “soft launch” on Thursday, June 10 with continued improvements scheduled to be made to the seating and service areas through the month of June. The cafe will be the first new retail location for Pegasus Coffee – a 42-year-old company – in more than 15 years.
