Pick a name and lunch is on her

Judy Hanson wants a new name for her Birch Bay cafe and is willing to pay for it. The new owner of Kim’s Coffee Cafe in the Worldmark building on Birch Bay Drive will give a ten dollar gift certificate to the creative customer who comes up with a new name.

“We wanted to get our customers involved,” said Hanson’s daughter Cynthia White, who also mans the counter at the popular lunch spot. Customer involvement is a theme at the cafe, where you can get 25 cents off your lunch order if you can answer the days trivia question.

Since Hanson took over the cafe in February she’s kept what worked and added some touches of her own, such as a section for gifts, postcards and books. “We’ve added on but haven’t really changed the cafe,” she said.

New menu additions focus on lunch counter standards that were absent before – tuna and egg salad for example. She also expanded salad offerings.
Hanson said she is focusing on consistent hours both winter and summer. Winter hours are 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., Thursday through Saturday and 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. Sunday and Monday. Hours expand in the summer.

The contest to rename the cafe ends October 12, and entries can be dropped off at the cafe until then. .
