Heather and Michael Wallace live in Everett’s Glacier View Neighborhood.

Walt’s Milk House opened on 44th street just east of the Totem Diner in April 1960. Sixty one years later the building has transformed into The Milk House Coffee Company.

For the last few years Heather and Michael Wallace have eyed the old Walt’s Milk House location thinking it would be a perfect gathering spot. After talking with various independent coffee shops and suggesting it as a good second location (and seeing no interest during a pandemic), the couple decided to fulfill a longtime dream and purchased the building last year.

After extensive remodeling and refreshing the building is almost ready to go. Heather Wallace tells me they hope to open right around the first of April. You can follow their final progress here on their Facebook Page.

The building features many unique touches including a huge roll up door from Overhead Door Company, the bike rack from the former YMCA in downtown Everett, cabinets by Lund Cabinets and a massive countertop made from bowling alley lanes.

The couple plan on featuring Velton’s Coffee which is roasted in Lowell and bagels from Whidbey Island Bagel Factory. You can go inside and gather with friends or they also have a drive up window if you prefer to stay in your car.
