40 years ago and decades before it became popular, Jesse Cool led a movement of preparing and serving only fresh, in-season, organic and local...ingredient-driven meals. The flagship of that movement, Late for the Train (1979-2004) and Flea St. Cafe. Today we know sustainability works. When Jesse set out to open her first organic restaurants, critics said it couldn't be done. Yet, along with a dedicated staff and host local farmers, vintners, fishermen and ranchers, Jesse has proven that Sustainable Cuisine is not only viable but even a preferable business model too. To this day, Flea St. Cafe continues to garner recognition and awards for environmental achievement, business sustainability, and community service. Flea St. Cafe's kitchen is led by chef Charlie Parker. With a deep respect for its own unique culinary traditions as well as those of global trends in cuisine and diversity, Flea St Cafe has aged into one of the nations truly iconic sustainable dining locations.

The place is quiet and cozy, it has been around for a long time. The service staff was attentive and professional. A great ambiance for good food and conversations.
Food: tasty and beautiful presentation
Every time we visit Flea Street, I’m impressed with the consistent, high quality, creative food. The staff in the quiet main dining room (unusual in today’s trendy noise!) is helpful, competent. The owner Jesse Cool talked to me about the family photos on the wall...More
It has been more than a year since I dined at the FSC. With them donating 10% of the nights proceeds to the local Senior Hunger Prevention "Meals on Wheels" Program, I thought I'd take a big-eating-massive-appetite Tongan roommate of mine.
I was throughly embarrassed....More
I was really looking forward to this meal after reading such great reviews but unfortunately it didn’t live up to expectation.
I had the chicken liver mousse to start which was quite tasty but tricky to eat without getting in a complete mess (it was...More
