Seward Community Co-op is a natural foods cooperative, providing customers with the highest quality products and services since 1972. We offer healthful, locally grown and organic produce, naturally raised meats, environmentally friendly cleaning products and a wide variety of health and body care items. Our deli offers great breakfast, lunch and dinner options — both hot and cold dishes — plus fresh sandwiches, smoothies and tasty baked goods.

At Seward Co-op, we believe in building a strong community. You will notice it in our products, our service, and our commitment to the neighborhood. Seward Co-op’s Ends is to sustain a healthy community that has equitable economic relationships, positive environmental impacts and inclusive, socially responsible practices.

Seward Co-op Creamery Café

The Creamery Café is located in “the old creamery building,” a historically important landmark for co-ops, local food, and the food networks they create.

Built in 1920 as a dairy production plant, the building was originally home to the Franklin Co-op Creamery Association, a milk and delivery co-op that would come to produce 80 percent of the Twin Cities’ milk supply in its heyday.

Today, Seward Co-op brings a cooperative restaurant and local food production facility back to the Creamery building. We’re proud to honor those original cooperators who had a vision for local democratic ownership and excellent food for everyone in Minneapolis. We hope you’ll raise a glass to their vision while you enjoy yourself at the Creamery Café.
