Poverty Bay Café
Poverty Bay Café, under new ownership by FUSION, is reopened June 5 serving familiar breakfast and lunch favorites.
Located in our FUSION Décor Boutique building, this Federal Way gathering spot has been refurbished and again offers the signature coffee and menu items familiar to patrons.
Plans are to create culinary and job skills training at the restaurant as well. With a focus on developing marketable skills in the food service industry, the program will provide employment opportunities for low-income adults in the community.
Founder-owner of the restaurant, Dan Olmstead, donated the business and equipment, as well as the Poverty Bay Café name, to the FUSION organization in September 2020. It was an easy decision, he said, noting that a skills training opportunity is important for the community.
The on-the-job teaching program, starting later in the year, will serve the FUSION mission of helping people who are experiencing homelessness become self-sufficient by providing “earn while you learn” training and employment.
Poverty Bay Café is located adjacent to the FUSION Décor Boutique.
