Phoebes Pastry Cafe on Division

Olympia Green Tour - Phoebe's Café

106 Division St NW, Olympia

Phoebe’s Pastry Café was the first business to join the West Central Park Neighborhood Center, and is a great example of adaptive reuse.

This former home with its distinctive clipped gable roof underwent a full building resuscitation and was brought back as a neighborhood bakery and café.

With an outdoor patio featuring extensive efforts to provide water permeability, gorgeous cabinetry built of wood reclaimed from railway tie crates (originally harvested from rainforests), neighborhood history as art on walls, and delicious Phoebe’s pastries - what was ignored is now a vibrant part of the neighborhood.

Visit Phoebe’s, see some practical efforts of sustainability in a high impact commercial kitchen, and eat some delicious local food.  Seems like a good way to help celebrate sustainability in our community.

Sustainability Features of this Site include:

  • The interior of the Bakery dining room has much reclaimed wood in the cabinetry, cabinets and bar. The wood comes from reclaimed crates that carried railroad ties. The wood is was harvested from rain forests long ago and we can avoid new logging by using what is already out there.
  • The exterior pathway and terrace are constructed with pervious pavers.
