Old cannery scale

Outside of Coffee Girl - Old cannery scale October 17, 2009

This old scale and the view are just a couple of the things I enjoy about the Pier 39 building, which used to be the Bumblebee Canning Company. The doores to the left take you into a comfy, atmospheric and much-loved coffe house called Coffee Girl, where treats (scones, lox and bagels, fruit/granola parfait with lox on the side - yumm) are served along with one of my favorite cups of coffee. It's the original place where coffee was served to the cannery workers. We'll be back, don't worry. Here are some other posts featuring Pier 39 and Coffee Girl. The inside of Pier 39 is essentially a roofed-over outdoor museum. I hope it never changes much. Thank you, Floyd!

Methinks if I was in Astoria this morning, I'd hightail it down to the Pier 39 building and enjoy a bagel and a cup of coffee!

Love this photo with the ship coming into the frame!

Nice shot with the great background. I think I'll have a hot chocolate though. MB

Bonjour :-) Can I come over real quick?
Btw, looks like I won't make it to WA. in March, maybe later in the spring. I can't wait.

Lol, the word verification just now was "ourses", bear ladies in French. That's just for your post-London resolution!

Very nice perspective, with a great view on the river and the usual ship.

P.S. - I hate verification words!
