Job Description

We are hiring Counter Person/Baristas.  The position is three to 5 days a week, from 10AM (8AM starting in October) to 4PM, with the opportunity for both full-time or part-time.   

Standard Fare is West Berkeley’s acclaimed restaurant (Chronicle top 100 restaurant, Eater 38 essential East Bay restaurant) serving fine dining, quickly done. We offer a small, eclectic, daily changing lunch menu (and breakfast starting in October) featuring the best seasonal ingredients the local markets offer. Everything is made in house with critical attention to flavor, execution, and presentation.  We are a tight-knit team that works hard, fast, and efficiently. Meeting our, and our customer’s, high expectations of delicious food, quickly served, and beautifully presented is a daily goal. Gracious hospitality is the norm both with our guests and each other. 

We are serving only take-out at the moment and are committed to keeping our team and our customers safe during this time.     

You are:  

o Experienced: Have at least 1 year restaurant or cafe experience. Barista experience is not required but is a definite asset! 

o Passionate: Enthusiastic, energetic, and able to think on your feet 

o Dedicated: Love to work hard and take pride in a job well done   

o Outgoing: Enthusiastic about working with people and providing great customer service   

o Thoughtful: Care about contributing to a positive and collaborative work environment.   

o Growth oriented: Interested in improving, learning, and sharing, and always open to new ideas and critical feedback    

 We are: 

o Inclusive: We strive to create an environment where BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and people of all genders feel safe and supported.    

o Sustainable: We always use ingredients that are healthy, environmentally friendly, and sustainable to the amazing people who produce them 

o Community-minded: Standard Fare is committed to an ideal beyond just making delicious food: we strive to always consider the ethical and political implications of our business. 

o Collaborative: We are a small staff coming together every day and working side-by-side to create delicious food and a warm, welcoming environment. 

The folks who come to Standard Fare to eat and drink are an amazing group of makers, doers, and helpers in the community. They come not only for a meal, but also for our dedicated, friendly service and the incredible culinary experience we offer.  

Benefits include: Staff meals, and a staff discount. A Health Stipend is provided to full-time employees.
