Project of The Month: Emerald Kitty Cafe

Western Neon is pleased to help illuminate our dark, mid-winter skies by unveiling Emerald Kitty Cafe’s brand new and ultra-pop rotating sign. Located across the West Seattle Bridge on the way to Alki Beach, this perky, spinning jewel casts its bright feline eyes on both the cafe it crests and its adjacent parent organization: Emerald City Kitty Harbor. Opened in 2017 to serve caffeinated cat lovers, Emerald Kitty Cafe simultaneously supports the mission of Kitty Harbor by ensuring visitors can sip a local Lighthouse coffee while helping rescue, nurture, or rehabilitate a feline in need.

This pole-mounted, rotating cabinet sign began as straight-forward, flat elements routed from thin gauge aluminum stock. Our Fabrication Team skillfully assembled these sections into a 3D shell paying careful attention to edge-quality while ensuring all the final neon and LED wiring had clear, concise pathways. As this work was underway, our Glass Shop bent a multicolor spectrum of tubing taken directly from the client-driven design intent. Once the final components were ready, the piece was completed by our Assembly Team and incorporated paint, vinyl applications, kinetic connections, and all illuminated support materials including an amazing set of whiskers.

Emerald Kitty Cafe boasts a playful, concise menu packed with unexpected options. With drinks ranging from a Lynx Latte to a Catpuccino or Ameowicano, you’re sure to find something that hits the spot. They also feature an array of offerings such as a Hangry Vegan Tortilla Wrap or Blackened Tofu Sandwich from Molly’s Grown to Eat beside a curated collection of bagels, donuts, and handmade treats.
Drop in to grab a furrrrociously strong coffee or specialty drink but be sure to pop in next door to visit with the cats currently in residence.  If you’re not blown away by the cute factor of the sign above, the warm purrs below will melt your heart faster than a Hot Pawcolate in the cafe – stop by Emerald Kitty Cafe or Emerald City Kitty Harbor today!
