About the Red and Black

The Red and Black is dedicated to providing delicious, wholesome foods at the lowest prices possible. We use organic, local and seasonal ingredients whenever possible.

We strive to provide a community space that is safe and welcoming to all. We hope this space is used for local voices to bring awareness and education on the issues facing us today. We work to be an example of ethical, non-hierarchal business. The cafe is worker-run and worker-owned.

Our space and our community are always growing and changing. We evolve based on the energy, enthusiasm and direction of our fellow workers and our neighborhood in accordance with our ideals.

The Red & Black Cafe is located on SE 12th avenue and SE Oak street in wonderful Portland, Oregon. We have been proudly displaying our colors as a worker-owned collective since 2000 and we’re still going strong.  We are a closed IWW union shop.  We boast a delicious, ENTIRELY VEGAN seasonally-sensitive menu, fair trade organic coffee, and a rotating selection of local microbrews.

But wait, there’s more. We love good music and good films. If you’re a musician, artist, or group looking to do a lecture or film screening at the cafe, we would love to hear from you!
