A unique place for Seattle’s agents of change!

FareStart Café is the perfect addition to the Pacific Tower Building. People involved in social impact can come here to have a delightful meal and create a little social impact at the same time. Your patronage helps students in our Youth Culinary Program.



Our menu always features a variety of delicious pastries, sandwiches, soups, salads, and espresso drinks. We change the menu a few times a year. View our current café menu.
