Description: We're a worker-owned cooperative whose mission is to serve delicious, organic food; foster joyful work; and build up our community. Every ingredient used in our foods, breads, pastry, chocolate, and coffee is sourced specifically for quality, wholesomeness, and sustainability. We foster kinship among workers, our regulars, and with our community by donating our excess to the tables of those in need; supporting our local schools, farmers, and nonprofit organizations; and offering cultural and educational events to bring people together throughout the year. Workers earn an average of $13.50 per hour, paid leave that is accrued after three months of employment, scheduling that is worker-focused and flexible, dental benefits, one staff meal and drink per five hour shift with a 30 minute paid lunch break, a 25 percent discount, a fresh loaf of bread per week, and access to wholesale ordering. The kin work involved in consensus-based decision making and management requires a commitment to communication and trust-building within the work community. What does this look like? Proactively seeking feedback before and after shifts, working – not only efficiently, but – mindfully, being a reliable person, reciprocating good will, giving direct feedback early and often, listening to seek understanding – especially in conflict, and avoiding victim mentality by being both vulnerable and accountable.

If you need a quick lunch or breakfast pastry, this is the place to go. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly. This is definitely on a list of places to visit when I get back to Astoria.

Just stumble upon this place when visiting Astoria and looking for a place to have lunch.

The café is housed in a large building with high windows so there is lots of light coming in. The interior is very interesting and alternative.

The sandwich with soup I had was of excellent quality and very tasty. A pleasant surprise in Astoria.

House salad refreshing after a week on the road! Soup made fresh daily-- And baked goods to enjoy, community space interior with a selection of great magazines for sale / and free to browse. Staff was so kind, even offered to let me taste the tempeh sticks before deciding if I wanted to order some to be sure I liked them! Overall great experience for someone looking for FRESH vegetarian options!! ( ps- my husband had the tempeh / lettuce / tomato sandwich- packed with flavor!!! ) thanks for a great lunch!!
