We are in fact a non-profit coffee shop. Our prices are suggested, so please pay what you are willing or able. All the proceeds, which stay within Eastside Coffee, go to covering our overhead costs and toward creating an inexpensive workspace for other groups (for-profits or non-profits alike) and individuals to utilize. Office space can be very expensive and many non-profits struggle to find an affordable space to host occasional meetings or do group work. We hope that our space would be used to this end.
It’s for this reason the we have recruited a friendly staff of volunteers. Our wonderful crew of volunteer baristas are committed to the mission of Eastside Coffee and to loving the neighborhood. They have given up some personal time in order to focus on serving our customers well by showing hospitality to anyone who finds their way into the shop. Some of us are full-time students, others have full-time or part-time jobs, others are stay-at-home moms, but all are committed to making quality beverages and creating a warm and welcoming environment.
Come by and say to our volunteers, stay, chat, do some work, or just grab your coffee and go about your day — we’re glad you did!
