Nestled in the cozy basement of the Art Building, Parnassus has provided coffee and goodies to campus patrons since the 1950s. UW Dining is proud to continue the legacy of the beloved hangout as it assumes operational oversight of Parnassus.
The funky, artsy vibe and laid-back ambiance of the café will live on. UW Dining has taken special measures to keep Parnassus’ enduring appeal for the students, staff and faculty who faithfully frequent it.
Starting autumn quarter 2013, Parnassus will be serving our own specialty Husky Grind coffee. The range of food offerings at Parnassus emphasizes locally made items to help accommodate the wide range of eating requirements of Parnassus patrons.
Parnassus accepts Husky Cards, cash, Visa, MasterCard and debit cards.
In keeping with tradition, the café is run by students with administrative support from HFS. Half of the café’s profits will go directly to the School of Art scholarship program and the other half will go toward capital improvements.
