The Readery’s mission is bring nourishment and peace to our customers through comforting dishes made with the highest quality ingredients, exciting and unique literary selections, and special events featuring authors and artists who expand the cultural conversation regarding the role of art in society. We strive to become a touchpoint for the artistic community in the Northwest, known not only for our support of artists, but also for our commitment to fresh, wholesome dishes.
Our Chef, Michael Boshka, is a perfectionist in all aspects of his life, but where food is concerned, he borders on obsessive. When you dine at The Readery, you can be certain that you are getting only the highest-quality ingredients, made fresh from scratch, every time you order. The Readery offers creative fare; from the very popular Grilled Veggie Sandwich to the Zucchini Bread French Toast, there’s always something unique on the menu to scintillate and entice the palate.
The Readery offers locally-roasted, organic, Avion coffee and espresso. You’ll savor the best, with your soul at ease in the knowledge that your coffee is from farms committed to sustainability. You’ll be drinking the best Shade Grown, Rain Forest Alliance and Bird Friendly coffees this world has to offer. Each origin has earned a score of at least 80 points & above according to the Specialty Coffee Association of America.
The Readery is constantly increasing its new and used inventory to reflect the desires of our readers. Our used section is the highest quality and is marked at the lowest prices around, and our new inventory reflects the desires of our customers (and employees). We also feature monthly events with authors and artists, children's story hours, book club hosting, and catering for special events. Stop by and take a look at our books!
