Situated in a Victorian-era styled building in West Olympia, The Park Side Café provides a fresh take on plant-based foods. We are here to help you eat and drink well and we’re focused on building trust, community and experiences with our customers and vendors. We may be a new spot in town, but we are here to make a big impact! Our hope is for The Park Side Cafe to be a grounding point for the West Olympia community and beyond. With access to the West Central Park, food trucks, public restroom, a historical bed and breakfast and close to other small businesses in the neighborhood, we are creating an accessible space for people to come together. Park events, music on the roof top, art features, garden spaces, and of course food are just some of the qualities of the community spaces we are envisioning!
We are dedicated to expanding awareness of the connections between people and everything around us. We are a compassionate café and deli where community, planet, animals and you mean the world to us! We will serve only the best of what we have to offer. For us that means providing you with food that is created with intention. The food sourced by the café is organic, local and seasonal as much as possible. And we can guarantee we will exceed your expectations! We know for some, an all plant-based eating establishment can be a strange or uncomfortable place… but you can trust trust us to WOW you no matter what your preferred diet is. Whether it is to start your day with a cup of coffee, to grab a lunch bite, or to enjoy a pastry while catching up with a friend, come in and let us offer you something wonderful!
The Park Side Cafe proudly represents care for our environment in everything from the compostable takeout containers to the reclaimed wood tables and floors. We buy our seasonal produce from regional, organic farmers in order to support our local economy and produce less pollutants. We provide convenient and satisfying everyday fare that will get you back on-the-go and filled with nutrient dense super foods with a compassionate core. Delicious pastries, breads, and desserts are baked fresh by our team of talented bakers. Our baristas are well trained and coffee offerings are locally roasted, organic, and fair trade. Staff is passionate about creating exquisite foods and providing a unique and gratifying experience. We are your go-to place if you are looking for quality food paired with fresh coffee and intention.
