Our Mission & Vision

At the Park Side Cafe, our mission is to create a space that can be a hub for the Westside of Olympia and expand awareness of how the food choices we make impact the environment we live in. Whether it’s supporting regional farmers, being mindful about our waste and pollutants we create, growing compassion in eaters, promoting locally owned businesses, or simply greeting everyone that comes in our doors with a friendly smile, we believe we can help make a difference one action at a time and constantly aspire and inspire to improve. Situated in a Victorian-era styled building in West Olympia, The Park Side Café provides a fresh take on plant-based foods. We are all about 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.

We're seeking awesome individuals to join our team! Could that be you?


Cooks will prepare a variety of plant-based recipes using various kitchen tools and equipment according to a daily prep list and recipe cards. They will perform various tasks ranging from preparing ingredients and cooking, to cleaning kitchen surfaces and mopping floors. They will also help coordinate weekly specials, working with seasonal ingredients and rotating menu items. Cooks work under the direction of the senior member of the kitchen staff. Ideal candidates will easily follow instructions when given and follow all health and safety rules in the kitchen.
