C•SQUARE & Third Street Cafe

Third Street Cafe is open for takeout Wed-Sun!

It is with deep sadness that we’re announcing the closure of Third Street Cafe at the end of January. The last day for takeout will be Sunday, January 31st. The decision to close the restaurant was a difficult one, but we believe it to be the right one for the good of the Co-op. While we would love to pursue the vision of a Co-op restaurant, it is no longer sustainable to keep that portion of our business open. With COVID restrictions still in place and an unpredictable future, even a half full Third Street Cafe feels impractical both in economics and community, and we can all agree that takeout just isn’t the same.  Read more about our decision here.

Third Street Cafe will be open for takeout through January 31st. Menu items include juicy burgers, salads, fish & chips, our handmade pizzas, and beer and wine, too! You can order online here and grab your food to-go. Have a gift card? Here’s how to redeem your Third Street Cafe gift card!

Third Street Cafe Hours:
Wed – Thurs: 4pm-8pm
Fri – Sun: 12pm-8pm

Solar System Solar System!

Solar panels were installed in April 2016. The Co-op contracted Fire Mountain Solar (located here in Mount Vernon) to install an Itek system on the roof of C•SQUARE. Fire Mountain Solar estimates that 1 KW of solar will generate 910 KWH/year. Our system will generate approximately 16080 KWH of power a year, which is enough to power three residential homes for a year.

System Specs:
• 17.67 KW Itek Solar System (made in Washington)
• 62 Itek Energy 285 watt panels
• 1 Itek Solectria PVI 5200TL String Inverter
• 2 Itek Solectria PVI 6600TL String Inverter

Our estimated electric bill savings for the first year is $1,548. It estimated that the system will have paid for itself in ten years.
