Café @ St. Stephen's
The Café @ St. Stephen's is the latest expression of the way that St. Stephen's Church seeks to serve as a 21st century version of the "village green." The café seeks to build community, connecting people to one another and our choices about the foods we consume to our call to be stewards of God's creation. The Farmers Market @ St. Stephen's, our Sunday Community Suppers, our visiting speakers and poets, and other ministries at St. Stephen's Church all contribute to our mission to serve as a village green for the community. We want to extend a welcome to all, whether they are members of St. Stephen's, members of another faith community, or not affiliated at all. This is a reclaiming of the role the church has played through the centuries, with "parishes" actually being geographic areas for which the local parish church took a sense of responsibility.
The café is open seven days a week. Our SUMMER hours are:
- Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
- Saturday, 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
- Sunday, 8 a.m.-noon
- Closed when the parish office is closed for holidays (Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, December 26) and inclement weather
Offerings include bagels to order, muffins and pastries, egg, ham and other biscuits, oatmeal, smoothies, and the full range of espresso drinks. Our menu includes wraps, salads, soups, flatbreads and salty and sweet snacks for people of all ages. We carry frozen treats from local vendors King of Pops and Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Our ham biscuits are made with Angel Biscuits from the May Fair House, and we have sandwiches made with May Fair House pimento cheese!
Everyone is welcome. We look forward to welcoming you to the Café @ St. Stephen's.
