Café Esperanza


​Café Esperanza is creating a community gathering point in a restaurant setting, which provides space for art, music, education, and even job-training. We serve excellent, ethically grown coffee and locally sourced foods. Fresh, simple offerings, guest chefs from various styles of cooking, and sustainable practices such as recycling, composting, low waste portions are central to Café Esperanza’s expanding mission.

What makes ​us unique?

​Café Esperanza is a pay-what-you-can cafe, which means you have several options: Pay the suggested price, half-price, or volunteer. Customers can also pay-it-forward: Tip to fulfill the mission or buy a $10 token to hand out yourself in the community. See the full menu here. Have more questions? See the FAQ here.
