Welcome to the

Senior Center of West Seattle



Welcome to Margie’s Cafe!

The Senior Center’s café is one of West Seattle’s best hidden gems. Tucked away on the second floor, next to our two-story atrium, Margie’s Café is a great spot for a quiet coffee break or lunch out with friends. Our low prices make lunch out an affordable option in the Junction.

Our menu features fresh homemade soups, salads and sandwiches made from scratch daily. We offer a daily vegan option, innovative fresh salad specials that change weekly and delicious home-cooked beer bread. Visit us on Friday for a free freshly baked cookie.

Margie’s Café is open to anyone in the community, so you do not need to be a member to enjoy our tasty food and friendly setting. Our café hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Visit our website for our weekly café menu: sc-ws.org.
