The Business Strip in Ravenna, Seattle

The Businesses of Ravenna

In This Post

A walk down Ravenna's commercial strip.

 

The Ravenna Neighborhood has a small but vital and eclectic commercial zone. Located on NE 65th Street between 20th Ave NE and 25th Ave NE are several businesses and very few franchise or chain operations. Bigger stores including two major grocery chains, a large drug store chain, a furniture store and a large commercial area can be found about 15 blocks to the west in the Roosevelt neighborhood, or the University Village Shopping Center 20 blocks to the south.  Choose to live in Ravenna and shopping is near at hand.

A little walk down 65th Street from 20th Ave to 25th Ave will you show you what’s nearest at hand.

Third Place Books

On the north side of the street we have Third Place Books, Vios Café and The Pub at Third Place, all located in the same building. The next few buildings look like single family homes but as the zoning changed, so did the usage and these now hold the offices of several varieties of private practitioners. The same type of usage is found on the south side of this block.

In the next block we have The Herbalist, Zeek’s Pizza , and The Bagel Oasis.   Then the Crepe Café, an Edward Jones Investment office and an Osaka Japanese Restaurant. Across the street to the south is a large space for rent, and a small but delightful café/butcher shop, the Café Da Pino. Upstairs is a Thrive, an art school for children.  In the next block east of da Pino’s is Ravenna Interiors . On the north side of the street again we have a barber shop, a stylist, and the Ravenna Ale House. In the ale house parking lot stands an espresso drive through. Across Ravenna Ave are the McCarthy and Schiering Wine Merchants, an excellent place to shop.

On the last block to the east are two newer apartment buildings with restaurants including the Varsity Café, a Garlic Jim’s Pizza House, Bia Pia Thai Restaurant and another ale house. The commercial strip is capped on the north by Salmons Service Station on the north side of the street and a large Ida Culver Senior Living facility on the south.

When you move to Ravenna all of this is at your finger tips along with some peaceful, but close to the city, living.  I've lived in this area for the last 20 years and would be happy to show you around.
