I loved the choices of breakfast items when I last visited Astoria. There was a line, but not overly long and went fast. It is order at the counter, then sit for service.

A pleasant, rustic place to find tasty gluten-free baked goods, a light meal, and great tea. My friends also really loved their coffee as well as tasty conventional baked goods too. The salad I had was a special treat. Service was very friendly and helpful....More

We stopped in for a snack and a cup of Joe. The ambiance is slightly rustic industrial. There is ample seating for large groups. The bakery offers gluten free bread and a small array of healthy treats. The coffee was very good, and the staff...More

One of the main reasons that we visited here was to support the employee owned restaurant which is similar to Zachary's in Berkeley. California. Unlike Zachary's this place needs to get its prices down if it intends to thrive and survive. I mean, $8.75 for...More

The restaurant was packed on Saturday morning. I liked the long tables so it was easy to meet neighbors while you're eating. Cafe lattes awesome. The focus is fresh, local (I believe organic) food and it is delicious.

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.
