Pegasus Coffee Company is seeking exceptional baristas for shifts at our historic, flagship location on Bainbridge Island.

A bit about us:  

Pegasus Coffee has been hand-roasting small batches of high-quality coffee on Bainbridge Island since 1979.

Pioneers from the beginning, we introduced the European-style Coffee House to the region at our first store on Bainbridge Island in 1980. Shortly thereafter, we made history when we opened the very first coffee bar in downtown Seattle.

We’re looking for new members to join our tight-knit team at our original Bainbridge location, Pegasus Coffee House. Designed in the classic European Coffee House tradition, Pegasus Coffee House has long been a friendly, if somewhat bohemian place to gather for outstanding coffee, lively discussion and the free exchange of ideas. A haven for artists, Pegasus´ walls have also long been a gallery for local art, and its front window a stage for traveling musicians and poets from across the PNW.

Come be a part of 42 years of coffee history at our iconic, brick and ivy-covered first store!
