Volunteer Park Cafe’s focus: simple food, local ingredients. Its motto: “Always fresh goodness.” Volunteer Park Cafe serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner: fresh baked goods, brioche French toast, panini, potpies, artisan pizzas, seasonal entrées (and also wine, beer, and meals to go). Events include three-course family-style Sunday suppers and multicourse dinners featuring Washington wineries. Prices can seem steep for a casual place, but the quality’s high.
