Trading Post Cafe


Trading Post Cafe provides traditional breakfast, family lunches off the water, and relaxing sunset dinners on its outdoor patio – there is something here for everyone! Situated year-round in Lake Don Pedro Marina near its launch ramp, during summer, it has moved closer to Lake Don Pedro State Park’s launch ramp.


Start your day right with an extraordinary breakfast. Choose from delicious options like sourdough toast with warm BBQ Jack Fruit to vegan coleslaw and poached egg, or order smoked salmon, chorizo, or halloumi served on buttered sourdough; there’s even Nutella sauce drizzled on buttermilk pancakes!

The Trading Post Cafe is ideal for relaxing and having a pleasant dining experience. Their food is mouthwateringly good, their atmosphere is superb; their staff friendly and accommodating; prices fair; service is fast – this makes a fantastic spot for quick meals and drinks!


Start your day with an indulgent traditional-style breakfast or come off the water and grab lunch; we have something to meet everyone’s needs. Visit the Trading Post near the launch ramp during summer months or our Marina year-round for a wide range of breakfast and lunch items available year-round.

This weekend’s opening of an expansive American restaurant at John Street’s Seaport space was owned and managed by locals, with chef Stephen Woods from Smith & Wollensky creating the hearty menu. Now, these owners hope to introduce outdoor dining this summer; However, a heated exchange with two building residents at Community Board 1’s Financial District Committee meeting has raised some concern among them.


Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, sunset at the marina in Summer, or just stopping in for quick snacks and refreshments – Trading Post offers something for all occasions! With food, beverages, riding gear, and much more all under one roof – plus anything that might have been forgotten along your journey, we have you covered!

Don’t forget to order bar food when visiting South Street Seaport’s Trading Post restaurant, recently acquired by four Seaport locals, including Smith & Wollensky alumni Stephen Woods. While sipping $5 beers at this vast three-floor space newly developed by four Seaport locals -including Woods from Smith & Wollensky-share some cracker-thin pizza with sausage while watching your game on TV or the cracker-thin pizzas made vegan! For something a little heartier, check out their seafood (raw bar!) or burger menu options (grilled halloumi with a poached egg on buttered sourdough sounds delicious-and yes, it is vegan!).
