Each of our 10 locations create a unique space that is as diverse as the community it resides in. It's with our specialty coffee, and a warm “good morning”, that we awaken our community. It’s through our house-made breakfast bagels, soup, salads, and sandwiches, we nourish it throughout the day. Most importantly, it’s our genuine love for our customers and community that builds lasting relationships and gives us the privilege to expand that love across the city for years to come.



In addition to great coffee and distinct food, Cherry Street’s biggest focus is developing a genuine sense of community through the relationships we foster with our customers. At the end of the day, it all comes down to the people around us and the love we build with them. We work towards elevating the neighborhoods surrounding our cafes, and the City of Seattle, by providing a place where no one is a stranger, conversation encouraged, and every day starts with “Good Morning”.


Great Coffee. Distinct Food. Genuine People.

We believe that it takes true love to build a great community. We continually strive to build rich connections with our customers and our community. It’s through these deep relationships that we are able to capture an energy and love that no money can buy.

Catering with Flair

“You can just serve food and be done or you can provide a whole experience, that is what we do,” Ali told me while discussing Cherry Streets first catering event. The event was hosted by Amazon celebrating Nowruz, the Iranian New Year. Nowruz is a secular holiday celebrated by people worldwide. Amazon honored the holiday by providing employees with authentic persian food, dancing and speaker Cyrus Habib, Lieutenant Governor of Washington.
The Persian food was a huge hit at the event. On the menu was persian rice, steamed and topped with turmeric, Persian stew, a vegetarian option with falafel and eggplant sauce and a halal lamb dish topped with tomato and saffron sauce. A woman approached Ali just after serving up her plate and complimented him on the great food, he pointed out that she hadn’t taken a bite yet and she replied, “I can smell good food.”
After debuting Persian dishes at the 500 Fairview location and Public House, Ali wanted to be able to share this food with more of the community. Catering is a whole new venture for Cherry Street, a coffeehouse that happens to serve quality food, and we intend to bring the same quality to your event has we do our stores. Whether a work party, meeting or friendly gathering we would love to provide not only unique and delicious food, but a unique and memorable experience as well.
