Anchorhead Coffee takes over former Bellevue Tully’s location

It will be the coffee roaster’s third store and second on the Eastside.

Duvall’s Anchorhead Coffee is expanding to Bellevue soon, opening its second location on the Eastside.

The Duvall-based coffee roaster will be opening in the old Tully’s Coffee location at 555 110th Ave. NE in downtown Bellevue after opening a location in Issaquah last December. Anchorhead Coffee owner Jake Paulson said the City Center Plaza is a perfect fit for a new shop. He’s currently waiting on permits to renovate the shop.

“Once we get permits it should be a pretty straightforward buildout,” he said.

Anchorhead Coffee has a warehouse in Duvall and opened a Seattle branch in 2016. The company was started by Paulson and his business partner Mike Steiner who have been looking to expand on the Eastside since they started.

The specialty coffee brewer roasts a lot of its own coffee and has a bakery at its warehouse where fresh pastries are made every morning. The shop has become known locally for its signature dish called the Quaffle, a cinnamon role made of croissant dough baked in a waffle press.

An opening date has not been announced for the new Anchorhead location.

With Anchorhead moving into the old Tully’s location, nearly all of the former Tully’s locations are either filled or have development plans. The only remaining location which remains without known plans is the former Main Street location.
