The Argonaut Story
Pulled by the mountain air, Lindsey and Noah Dahlstrom left the city they loved (Seattle) to be wrapped in the shadow and beauty of the Enchantment Mountains. They opened Argonaut Espresso Bar in August of 2014 (a small but mighty sidewalk espresso bar & cafe) and began their entrepreneurial dreams!
In the spring of 2018, they opened Schnitzel Boys (later called Argonaut Kitchen) and tried their hand at restaurant ownership. They made delicious craft sandwiches with a cult following. After two and a half years, a lot of work and a global pandemic they made the bittersweet decision to close their doors and sell the restaurant.
Meanwhile, Argonaut Espresso Bar was bursting at the seams and busier than ever! Every morning the 80 square foot sidewalk cafe would bake fresh buttermilk biscuits for their famous Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich, prepare countless Hipster Avocado Toasts and craft the best espresso in Leavenworth!
Knowing they needed more space for their operations, they decided to expand the coffee shop and opened Argonaut Coffee & Biscuits in August 2021. In May 2022, they made the difficult decision to not re-open Argo Bar and focus solely on the new shop.
We hope you love what we have created and stay tuned for new things to come. We are always looking to make things better and hone our craft. Our goal is that Argonaut be a place with food you love, people who warm your heart and a space that welcomes you in again and again.
Thank you so much for your patronage and support over the years- our customers are an integral part of why we are successful and we are so grateful.
-Lindsey & Noah Dahlstrom
HEY! Ever wonder where we got our name?
Argonaut Peak is a mountain in the Enchantments! Noah climbed it with our first employee, Stephen!
