YWCA Triathlon: Fuel Up at Seward Co-op Creamery Café

Support our community—and your workout—at Seward Co-op Creamery Café in Minneapolis. Vegan or omnivore, avoiding gluten or all about wheat, you can fuel up for the YWCA Women’s Triathlon with our fresh, local and organic menu or celebrate with a beer post-race.

We’re a café by Seward Community Co-op. That means we’re focused on cooperative values as much as we are on offering seasonal dishes made from ingredients we purchase daily. We’re committed to sustaining a healthy community that has equitable economic relationships, positive environmental impacts and inclusive socially responsible practices.

Seward Co-op Creamery Café works with small-scale farmers and producers, especially those whose production may not yield the volume demanded of the co-op’s two grocery stores. Café employees earn a living wage once they have worked 2,000 at the co-op.

Spend time with neighbors or friends on our patio or brightly lit community space. Happy Hour is 2-6 p.m. every Wednesday through Saturday. We serve a rotating Happy Hour menu, a $10 burger special made with Peterson’s Craft Meats that includes fries and a pint, and $1 off beer, cider and wine. Try our summer menu, including our beet Reuben, lamb and pesto melt, farmer salad and so much more. Follow us on social media and visit us at 2601 E. Franklin Ave.

About the SEED Program
The SEED program is a simple yet powerful community giving opportunity that allows customers to round up their grocery bill at Seward Community Co-op for recipient organizations that share the co-op’s commitment to a healthy community. All funds donated at the register are given directly to the recipient organization at the end of each month, often totaling over $20,000 per month.
