Ten Black-owned Seattle Businesses Recommended by Marcus Green

Recommendations:

  1. The Station is the definition of a community cafe. During the pandemic, this cafe showed up for the Beacon Hill community in a way that many cafes seek to emulate. They serve espresso drinks, pastries, and hot sandwiches, with Latinx flair. The Hot 16 is my go-to, a spicy chai with cayenne pepper that swiftly transitions from sweet and warm to spicy and hot. The service is always kind and considerate and the staff represent the diverse clientele. I appreciate that they are also home to many local food and decor start-ups: they sell locally made candles and Kryse’s ice cream. While you’re there for your caffeine fix, consider donating to their food drive or adding funds to the community card that serves homeless and disenfranchised members of our community.

  2. This bizz I love that they’re literally across the street from the Beacon Hill light rail station. They’ve stepped up in an amazing way to continue to support community – small bizz to sell in and outside their storefront. Food & coffee is tasty and the staff are friendly 💜

  3. Such a great spot for food, drinks and a special community vibe. We stop by on our way to or from playdates at nearby Jefferson Park.

  4. The Station not only has amazing Mexicano Mocha, but the atmosphere and staff are amazing! They provide a space to sell products from local artists, and even space for donation of foods for local communities to grab. It’s very close to the Beacon Hill light rail and very convenient for those living in the community!
