Mercury Cafe offers locally roasted direct-trade coffee. Our coffees are from Four Barrel Coffee. While we like to do pour-over coffee, we also have a French press brewed in bulk for those in a hurry.

We also offer small-batch baked goods, made-to-order sandwiches, and house-made soups. Our food is as local and organic as possible. Pies and scones are our specialty and our sandwiches are made to order and come with an organic mixed green salad.  Consider having lunch with us. Plenty of light and lots of seats.

Mercury carries a selection of draft beers, mostly from Northern California, and usually some cheap red and white wine. And there are plenty of non-alcoholic drinks available as well.
