Seattle, WA -- Mar 26, 2020

We haven't had a THROWBACK THURSDAY post in awhile, so here's a good one:Our historic 1904 Lightship No. 83 "Swiftsure" has resided at Lake Union Park since before it was a park. She is the oldest surviving lightship in the United States, the last with her original steam machinery, and will be the last with traditional wood weather decks when her restoration is completed.This photo was taken in the summer of 2001 and shows No. 83 tied up on the west wall of what would become Lake Union Park 9 years later. The Historic Ships Wharf, where all our ships now reside, was not built until 2004 and was a major component of the area's redevelopment into the park it is today. ... See MoreSee Less

Seattle, WA -- Mar 23, 2020

Today, we stand with our Seattle restaurant community in urging lawmakers to address our growing needs in light of our city’s ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We’ve submitted our petition for relief as a coalition under Seattle Restaurants Unlimited. Without significant and immediate financial relief, many of us will not be able to recover from the upheaval caused in the wake of Coronavirus. Our voices as smaller, independently owned restaurants are not being heard. Now, we need your help. Please consider visiting our petition @changedotorg petition — bit.ly/saveseattlerestos.

Seattle, WA -- Mar 26, 2020

To our community: Thank you for all the love and appreciation you have sent our way during this difficult time. Unfortunately the ripple effect of the COVID-19 virus has been swift and severe. We've been hit with significant financial losses and we have no choice but to pare down our operations.To stabilize the company and give us the best chance of staying in business, we decided this week to temporarily close three Grand Central Bakery cafes – Woodstock and Sellwood in Portland and Wallingford in Seattle - and to eliminate about 150 positions across the company. Last week we closed our Pioneer Square and N. Fremont locations. To those who have lost their jobs, we are so sorry.By drastically reducing staff and closing some of our cafes, we hope we can stem our financial losses, keep Grand Central Bakery alive through the COVID-19 pandemic and one day rebuild. With the current bread production team and café crews, we are taking every precaution to operate safely.We need your help! We are open for take-out business at seven remaining cafes – Beaumont, Cedar Mill, Hawthorne and Multnomah in Portland and Burien, Eastlake and Wedgwood in Seattle – and offering a delicious on-line menu that includes bread, pastry, coffee and sandwiches with easy and safe curbside pick-up. Please support us as you are able to with a call-in or online order, by buying gift cards, or by picking up our bread delivered fresh daily to your local supermarket. Ask your friends and family to do the same.This is not just about us. Last year our cafes and baking operations directed 89% of our food dollars to family farmers and ranchers in our region. We gave $35,000 in cash grants to nonprofit partners. We paid for 751 volunteer service hours in our community. We also had the privilege of feeding and welcoming so many of you. ❤️ We hope this time of great uncertainty eventually leads us back to running a strong business with a purpose.The past two weeks have been wrenching, and yet at every turn, we’ve seen strength, grace and generosity. We believe there’s a bright future for us on the other side of this. We hope you are part of it. ✨🥖 ... See MoreSee Less
