Cafe Management
Joy Meyer –

Nearly ninety percent of the items sold in the Water Street Cafe are made fresh daily, from scratch, in our kitchen. We use primarily organic ingredients, focusing on local and organic ingredients when at all possible.

The Water Street Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Beginning at 8:00 am, Monday through Saturday, you can find breakfast sandwiches and breakfast burritos available. Brunch begins every Sunday at 10:00 am.

Espresso: Try our organic espresso bar featuring organic milks and locally roasted, fair trade espresso from Kickapoo Coffee. We have options for the allergy sensitive, including cow, almond and coconut milk. We also offer several choices of fresh brewed hot coffee and tea for enjoyment in-house or on-the-go.

If you are looking for a lunch filled with variety, you’ve come to the right place. Out hot bar, salad bar, panini (toasted sandwiches), and soups are available Monday through Saturday from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. On Sundays our hot bar, salad bar, panini (toasted sandwiches), and soups are available from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Our hot bar buffet has a different menu daily and changes seasonally as well. Check out the Café lunch schedule to see what we are featuring each day.

The Water Street Café Hot Bar is self-serve. In-store plates and to-go containers are located next to the bar. Each customer is able to select exactly what foods they prefer. After selecting lunch, the food is brought to the cashier, just like groceries. Hot bar food is available per pound – select as much or as little as you like.

Our grab-n-go cooler is always stocked with fresh cold sandwiches, dips, spreads, and salads for anyone in a hurry. Our pastry case has an assorted supply of treats made just blocks from the Co-op by local Waving Grains Bakery.

We have Whole Roasted Amish Chickens available for purchase every afternoon to take home and enjoy for dinner.

The Oneota Community Co-op is located right next to the Water Street Park. This downtown space is a perfect place for lunch. Feel free to stop at the Café and take your lunch ‘to-go’ right next door!
