Luther's Table grew from a 50 year history from Renton Lutheran Church and is a hospitality start ministry with the Evangelical Lutheran Church.  Their core values include story, authenticity, moderation, humility, and humor.  They sell a variety of cafe items including sweets, flatbreads, sandwiches, soups, salad, and entrees, and they have a barista and bartender.  They are volunteer-run and donate 30% of their proceeds to a local charity.  See their grande opening footage (April, 2011).  Learn more about Luther's Table's story.

Luther's Table showcases another reason why I Love Renton and Renton is a great place to live, work, and play, but don't take my word for it.  Be sure to show the love and show up for Luther's Table live!  Visit them online for a show schedule and become a fan. Note that Luther's Table is a mostly volunteer-run and non-tipping establishment, but they do gratefully accept your donations.  Be sure to clap, drop a spot in the barrel of monkeys, and say hi to Gretchen for me!
