Serving meals in an atmosphere of dignity and respect

Inspiration Cafe has returned to serving meals in a restaurant-style setting, after several years of to-go meal distribution to help meet the rising needs resulting from the pandemic. 

The Cafe is open to our participants five days a week and operates like any other full-service restaurant in the city. Currently, we offer breakfast Monday-Friday and dinner on Thursdays. More than just a place to eat, Inspiration Cafe is a refuge from the streets where participants can get a good meal, connect with fellow diners, volunteers, and staff, and form a supportive community.
