“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Delicious, fresh food. Very reasonable. Friendly, helpful staff--order at the counter and they will bring you your food when it's ready. We had very good veggie lasagna and home baked gingerbread for dessert. They also have a lively and very good music calendar.

“The most nourishing place in Olympia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Traditions Fair Trade retail store and Cafe is a must see in Olympia.
There is no comparison to this establishment.
Traditions is a home away from home, which supports the Olympia community like no other.
I highly recommend a visit to Traditions for locals and visitors alike.

Small restaurant offers delicious, fresh, organic foods, with Olympic ice cream for desert! Soups and salad with a half sandwiches are made fresh and well served. Great view of Capital Lake.

“Purveyors of great ethics, food, entertainment, and goods!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I was shocked to see only four reviews for our dear Traditions Fair Trade and Cafe! That doesn't seem possible---it's a wonderful little sanctuary in the heart of our city, across from the water, and with the best view of the Capitol/Capitol Lake in town. The store is a place to find beautiful, creative, fairly traded goods, and the cafe is a haven for simple, healthy, light and sustainable foods, and a meeting place important to so many. Any given night you might find a concert from a national act, a local HeartSparkle players production, a local meeting of the Slow Food Movement or perhaps the local chapter of Toe-Curling Knuckle-Crackers! Really, it's a beloved joint run by folks you can really trust: to feed you, clothe you, educate you, entertain you, and beautify you. Sometimes, I'd like more choice on the menu, but what they have is GOOD, and served up warmly and with smiles. Their soups are definitely a highlight.
