Come To The Table For Volunteer Park Cafe

A chance for Seattleites to lend a helping hand to a local foodie favorite.

“Come to the Table” is an auction and dinner to raise funds for the Volunteer Park Cafe, a “happy neighborhood restaurant.” For more than a year, the establishment underwent a rezoning process with the City of Seattle to make the change from grocery to restaurant. Legal fees have piled up, so the cafe decided to look to its neighbors for support.

The evening kicks off with Skillet Street Food, seafood from Seattle’s Mutual Fish Company, handmade pasta from Lagana Foods, Charcuterie from Zoe’s Meats, organic produce from Full Circle, bread from Columbia City Bakery and more from family and friends. Adult beverages will be provided by Syncline Winery, Lioco, COR Cellars, Stone Brewing Co. and Stumptown Coffee Roasters.
