Co-op Creamery Café Patio Now Open

Seward Co-op Creamery Café, once housed the historic Franklin Co-op Creamery Association almost 100 years ago, and is now home to the one-and-only cooperative restaurant in the Twin Cities. The restaurant serves as the front to the Co-op’s much larger food production facility. The bustling kitchen is responsible for churning out all of the Seward-made sausages, baked goods, and deli grab & go items available for purchase in the stores. The Café opens daily at 8 a.m. with dinner service Wednesday through Saturday until 9 p.m. Stop in at your leisure, either on your own to enjoy one of our seasonal specials or some hand-dipped Sonny’s ice cream, or with friends to share a pitcher of Minnesota beer or a bottle of wine on our new patio.

The scrupulous Seward Co-op Creamery Café team works around the clock to serve dishes with integrity and compassion. Our dedicated staff takes the time to learn where your food is coming from, how it’s grown, how the animals are treated, and what the impact is of getting all of the ingredients from the farm or producer to your plate. We create fairly-priced, nourishing dishes, sourced from socially-responsible farmers and producers. We offer everything from simple sustenance to more creative dishes and hope you’ll share a meal with us this summer!

Big Hunger: An Evening with Andy Fisher

Join Seward Co-op, Appetite for Change and Isuroon for an evening with Andy Fisher, author of “Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance Between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups.” Come early for dinner and drinks—a full menu will be available at the Seward Co-op Creamery Café. At 7 p.m. Fisher will talk about his ground-breaking work and sign copies of his book.

The 2016 election reminded us of the depth of economic insecurity across America, and of the political implications that come from ignoring this populist angst. The decline of Rust Belt communities since the 1980s has been paralleled by the rapid growth of food banks. Instead of challenging the government and corporations to provide living wages and good jobs, to support unions and oppose globalization, the anti-hunger movement has instead built alliances with Walmart, Tyson, and Monsanto, among other socially irresponsible companies. Big Hunger reveals the damage caused by this hunger-industrial complex, and offers a new vision for the anti-hunger movement to eliminate hunger through a focus on health, economic justice and local economies.

Dinner Service available from 6-7 p.m.
Drink Service available from 6-8 p.m.
