The Seward Co-op Creamery Café relaunched this fall with a more casual, comfortable atmosphere and family-friendly menu. The café is housed in a building originally constructed in 1920. At that time, it was a dairy production plant, originally home to the Franklin Co-op Creamery Association, a milk and delivery co-op that would produce 80-percent of the Twin Cities’ milk supply in its heyday. The name “Creamery Café” acknowledges the cooperative roots of the building.
Café staff create everyday classics for the menu, with direction and inspiration from the community. The menu evolves throughout the seasons and features familiar favorites, vegetarian sandwiches, a classic burger, and brunch fare.
Seward Co-op Creamery Café is excited to partner with Sonny’s, a family-owned business that has been churning small batches of ice cream made with fresh, whole ingredients since 1945. Thanks to that partnership, the Creamery now also serves a rotating selection of seasonal ice cream.
Not only does the Café rely heavily on many of the small farmers and producers who provide our grocery stores with local ingredients, but we also source from ourselves. Café customers can expect Seward Co-op baked goods, sausage and housemade soups. Customers who dine in the café are also supporting the businesses with which Seward Co-op partners.
Seward Co-op Creamery Café leadership is excited to prepare foods that reflect the tastes of the community members who eat at the café. We will continue to develop menu items and specials that highlight foods that are traditional in Central and South American and East African communities. Staff are enthusiastic to be a part of the success stories of the many small-scale farmers with whom Seward Co-op has worked over the years. We hope you will stop by and see what we have cooking.
