Coffee is our first love. If you’re looking for an opportunity to work in an environment that focuses on specialty coffee and quality food, we think this will be a great fit for you. We rotate our coffee roasters monthly, feature local dairy, and house-made ingredients for just about everything.

Our food program is seasonal and rotates as the seasons do. We source quality ingredients and while we keep a relatively simple menu, we really seek to execute all of our dishes to a high standard of excellence. Our from scratch kitchen is a small and resourceful team of folks who share both prep and line duties. You will be part of a tight team that works to grow and expand our food offerings to feed the fine folks of Everett.
