February 8, 2023

The redesigned N Concourse at Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA) Airport is now home to nine new options for travelers to grab a bite, sip some coffee or shop some snacks or new threads. The concepts are focused on Pacific Northwest favorites, locally inspired concepts and international favorites that are a first at SEA, including:

Pacific Northwest Favorites:

  • Beecher’s Handmade Cheese
  • Filson

Pacific Northwest Concepts:

  • The Bad Egg Breakfast Bar
  • Openspace Taproom
  • Pike and Pine
  • sodoPOP

International Firsts:

  • Wendy’s
  • Natalie’s Candy
  • Costa Coffee

“The N Concourse is a gem of the airport, and these dining and retail additions continue to give passengers more of what they want and love,” said Port of Seattle Commission President Sam Cho. “Along with the public art and local music stage, they complete the latest phase of redevelopment that will be seen across the airport in the years to come. I also appreciate the recognition by international favorites like Costa Coffee that SEA is a place to be to reach travelers locally and from around the world.”

“At SEA our goal is to build a five-star airport focused on customer experience and these additions help us on our way,” said SEA Airport Managing Director Lance Lyttle. “We are proud of our focus on giving travelers a diverse group of options for how to spend their time at the airport, especially with our dining and retail options. That includes building more partnerships with ACDBE and WMBE businesses here in N Concourse and throughout the airport. Each of these concepts has a recognizable tie to the Pacific Northwest and as a coffee-loving region, we’re excited that Costa Coffee choose SEA for their first retail airport location in the United States.”

Costa Coffee at SEA is operated by global restaurateur HMSHost.

“HMSHost has built its reputation on offering travelers dining options that exceed their expectations in terms of quality and experience. Costa Coffee is a beloved brand around the world, and we are proud to partner with Costa, our small business partners, and SEA to bring this exceptional concept to the N Concourse for hundreds of passengers to enjoy every day,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development, Tosin Kasali.

“Our baristas are on the mission to craft the best beverage for you, and we’re excited to be a part of Seattle’s incredible coffee culture,” said Daria Makhoukova, General Manager of Costa US Retail. “We’re happy to be partnering with HMSHost to bring Costa Coffee to SEA Airport, to celebrate our heritage and build our brand together – with our guests, travelers, and local partners.”

The Costa Coffee experience at SEA will be customizable for travelers to get what they need to fuel up for their journey.
