Coco Au Revoir

posted by on March 1 at 10:13 AM

Esteemed local pastry chef Sue McCown has abruptly called it quits on Coco La Ti Da, the “dessert restaurant and lounge” she opened at 806 East Roy St (across from the Harvard Exit) last November.

As McCown tells the Seattle Times, the whole Coco La Ti Da endeavour was under the gun from the start. “I started the business undercapitalized,” says McCown, who admits “mistake [were] made.” (Some would say the name was the first one, being more suitable to a drag queen one would run from than a dessert bar one would visit.)

Here’s Stranger writer Angela Garbes’ welcome-to-the-neighborhood column on the now-defunct dessertery.

RIP Coco La Ti Da.

Cannot say I will shed tears at the departure of that over-priced eatery. She had absolutely no respect for the Loveless Building putting external conduit pipes on a National Historic Register Building and covering up the Sherpkin Murals with cloth in the back so it would fit in with her bad interior decoration taste.

these sort of places come and go

no real product, over priced, snotty, no business plan

in a more diet conscious market, who eats this type of junk food

I whole heartedly agree with Steven.
HIstoric murals meets fake 50's kitschy gum drop crap, what a bad idea. No sugar high is worth enduring that.

Being a dessert freak, I wanted so badly to love Coco la ti da. However, the exorbitant prices for tiny little desserts were absolutely ridiculous, not to mention the pathetic service. (If I am paying $50 for two drinks and dessert, I expect dessert to arrive in less than 45 minutes, thanks.) Also, the back room looked like a badly beribboned wedding invitation.

Speaking of dessert, who made those cupcakes that were going around the Bus Stop last night? They were delicious.

Those cupcakes were made by Joe!

He makes good cupcakes.
