March 16, 2009, Mercury Cafe opened. This photo was taken at 7 am, when we first opened our doors. Ten years later, we’re still here. No small feat for a little local, independent cafe. We’ve seen many changes. We’ve been through many changes. So we celebrate.
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.
We’re trying something new. The last Friday of every month will be our community night where we feature guests–might be political, might be artistic, might be activist, might be all of the above–and people can drop by, enjoy drink and food, and meet the neighbors.
New stuff at the Mercury Cafe…
