We're closed for the summer while we relocate to our new location at 1225 Cathedral St.

Welcome to Red Emma's.

We're a radical bookstore and a vegetarian restaurant and a coffee roaster and a space for public events.

Red Emma's is a worker cooperative and family of projects dedicated to autonomy, sustainability, participatory democracy, and solidarity. Since 2004, our space has been a grassroots answer to the collapse of civic infrastructure, a radical gathering place and experiment in self-organized education, all made possible by a horizontally organized collective of folks who own the underlying business cooperatively. We also serve some amazing ethically sourced food and a fine cup of transparently traded coffee.
