Volunteer Park Cafe

Always Fresh Goodness

VPC Press Clippings

“No place reveals Seattle’s small-town soul like the Volunteer Park Café on a Saturday morning.”

Seattle Met Best Restaurants: The 30 Seattle Restaurant Experiences You Must Have Before You Die

“The figgy maple scone from Volunteer Park Cafe is utter perfection. Buttery, with bits of fig scattered about in the flaky dough, it may be the best in town.”

“Volunteer Park Cafe’s got charm in spades…but it’s the home style cooking that’s addicting.”

Seattle Magazine BEST HOME-AWAY-FROM-HOME STYLE MEALS

“The resulting [Mac Daddy] sauce puts anything in a box to shame — most homemade varieties, too. But that isn’t the only good to come out of the kitchen at the city’s Volunteer Park Cafe.”

“Burke, the mastermind behind the cafe’s savory selections, celebrates food while respecting the original form of the ingredient.”

“Bread and chocolate also melt the heart of fans of Volunteer Park Cafe…. chocolate toffee bread pudding is about the best thing I’d ever eaten.”

“It is a sandwich of admirable complexity and massive goodness; it exceeds the most hopeful expectations I had harbored for it.”

“Mini Mac — a bubbling little casserole filled with a silky blend of Gruyère, cheddar and fontina smothering torchlike noodles topped with jagged Parmesan breadcrumbs — is both too much and just enough.”

“…this cookie offers the grown-up heat of freshly grated ginger in perfect balance with dark chocolate chunks.”
