Job Description


Bartavelle Cafe Seeks Experienced, Passionate Cook

After nearly 8 years at our sweet little spot between Acme Bread and Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, we have met the moment and moved into our new spot as a take-out only cafe and shop, with contact-free service from 8-2 Wednesday-Sunday.

Our new home at 1609 San Pablo Ave (previously known as the Bartavelle Annex, which was our prep kitchen) is shaping up to be a lovely and functional place to work and our community has made it clear that they are happy to have us back! (You can find out more about us in the Business Overview section.)

We are currently seeking an experienced and enthusiastic cook to join our crew, 4 days/week. Duties will include working the line, workshopping and prepping seasonal dishes, maintaining a clean and functional work space, and working well in a collaborative setting. 

We work to foster a SAFE, collaborative and supportive environment. Everyone works masked, washes hands many many times a day, are tested for COVID often, and are careful to protect ourselves and those around us. 


Starting pay $17/hr + depending on experience, plus equal share of tips. Health care stipend for full time work (30 hrs/week) after 3 months check in.



Have at least one year experience in a restaurant or cafe setting working with fresh produce.

Love food! You respect the ingredients and appreciate the work involved in making something delicious, and you love to cook AND eat.

Love to work hard with a great crew in a supportive and creative setting, and take pride in a job well done.

Enjoy working collaboratively with others and enjoy serving the people.

Are interested and open to learning and sharing your knowledge with others.

OK working weekends and early mornings (7:15 AM start for line shifts, 9AM and later for prep shifts).

We work to create and maintain an environment that is welcoming and supportive of all people. BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and people of all genders encouraged to apply.

Please send us your resume and a note telling us why you'd like to work with us, your pronouns, and your favorite fruit dessert to

We look forward to meeting you! 






Business Overview

Our Story

Bartavelle Cafe (FKA Bartavelle Coffee & Wine Bar) was founded by Chef/Proprietor Suzanne Drexhage and her son Sam Sobolewski (Manager/Beverage Director) in October of 2012 in a comically small space around the corner from our new location. We were inspired in part by cafe/wine bar hybrids in places like Venice and Lisbon that offer not only coffee & pastries but also delicious small bites, breakfast, lunch, a glass of wine in the afternoon, basically everything we ourselves want. 

We are interested in (and determined to explore) what that idea might look like in these wild and uncertain times. For now this translates to us continuing to sell the same great coffee from Heart Roasters in Portland, delicious pastries baked in house, wine and beer by the bottle, delicious food, pantry items and other treats so you can have a version of our dream at your home or nearby park. 

Why Work With Us?

We are a small cafe with a big heart, working to always get better at what we do, and to create and maintain a creative and collaborative working environment that is inclusive and safe for all the people who work with us.
