How lucky was i to accidentally find this place while passing through Astoria. This worker-owned collective serves a cornucopia of vegetarian delights. Their bakery/pastry selections are to die for. Between my daughter and myself we shared three. They are rightly famous for their fabulous breads!...More

Delicious and filling pastries and sandwiches. Serving breakfast and lunch in a cozy but open room. Located below Fort George Brewing with plenty of parking. Organic and earth friendly with vegan and vegetarian options. Something for everyone. Coffee was delish!

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.
