Around our bakery on Capitol Hill, it is impossible to miss the scores of people on the streets
asking for help. We want to help in the best way we know how - by feeding people. Join our
Hidden 36 program, intended to help alleviate hunger in Seattle. Click on the logo above to

Eltana condemns the senseless murder of George Floyd and all the pervasive, insidious, societal
systems that allow such a horrific atrocity to be as American as apple pie.
We support Black Lives Matter and all protesters who continue to turn the screws on the system in
a way that cannot be ignored. Keep it up.
If you are a protester looking for a snack during the daytime – come to Eltana any day for a free
bagel and a spread – just say “I’m hungry for
If you are inclined to put your money where your mouth is, so are we. Make a donation of $25 or
more to any of the following organizations and we will give you a free half dozen bagels to show
our gratitude for funding the good fight:
● Campaign Zero
● Color of Change
● Any other organization you believe will bring about change toward a more just world
As COVID-19/Coronavirus cases increase, so does our concern. We would like to inform you about
what Eltana is doing in response.
First of all, we are staying up to date with King County and CDC guidelines. Second, we are
increasing our cleaning and sanitation practices at all of our stores.
1. It is crucial that sick employees do not come to work. Managers will send employees home if
they show any symptoms at work.
2. Washing hands often is key. Our employees are washing their hands more frequently for 20
seconds with warm water and soap.
Current risks are low but we are taking additional measures as precautions:
Every two hours,
we are using Quaternary Ammonium Chloride sanitizer to clean: Surfaces -- tables, counters, and
doors | Pitchers, shakers, and bottles | Bathroom door handles-interior and exterior |
We are washing all food prep equipment and knives frequently
Eltana has excellent health and sanitation practices
and will continue to do so.
A note about Quaternary Ammonium Chloride: with a single application, the chemical reduces the
chances of viruses and bacteria staying on them for up to six months. Tested and approved by the
United States Environmental Protection Agency, the compound is eco-friendly and safe.
