Coco's restaurant made memories
Its sad to see Cocos Bakery Restaurant closing its doors in Federal Way (Jan. 15, news article, After 20-plus years, kitchens closed at Cocos). I remember the great regulars who first started coming in the doors as the former Sambos was closing up. Mer Willis brought his coffee-drinking buddies in to warm up at the counter, as did a number of others who embraced us as the place to meet your friends for a good breakfast or a quick lunch.
Times change (as do peoples diets), but sometimes you wish that a nastalgic meeting place such as Cocos could go on forever. When I first opened that restaurants doors as the general manager on a blustery December day in 1981, I had no idea that the community would welcome us so strongly. The Sunday-morning breakfast rush had us running like crazy, with a waiting line that went out the door for hours.
Yes, Ive moved on in my career, but Cocos customers in Federal Way are some that Ill never forget. Thank you for your warm support of the restaurant, the staff and me. Most of all, thanks for the memories.
