Café @ St. Stephen's
Curbside service available
The cafe, like the parish office, is closed to indoor visitors at this time to comply with public health advice to limit contact with others outside your home. However, we began offering curbside service the week of April 12 and beginning the week of May 3, we expanded that service.
Visit our online ordering page for the full menu, and to place your order. Or, call 804.288.3318.
On Tuesdays, the Cafe also hosts a pop-up farmers market with 4 to 5 vendors from 9 a.m. until noon.
The Café @ St. Stephen’s also hosts a table at the Farmer’s Market @ St. Stephen’s, 8 a.m.-noon, to serve drip coffee, bagged coffee, and Clara Bars. The market takes place outdoors in the large parking lot at Somerset and Grove.
We are looking for an additional experienced barista to work in our cafe! Contact Stan Barnett for information.
The Café @ St. Stephen's is one 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 following is general information about our normal operations, which will resume when it is safe to do so.

Read on for exciting news about the ingredients we use in the café.
The Café at St. Stephen’s is excited to announce that we now offer gluten-free bread for sandwiches and a gluten-free cauliflower crust for flatbreads, each for an additional $1. We are pleased to offer our customers more options.
Exciting changes to our ingredients: turkey used in our sandwiches and salads is oven-roasted with no artificial ingredients. Our hummus and peanut butter are both organic. We are proud of the progress and changes we’ve made in recent months and continue working to meet the vision for the Café’s standards, particularly those focusing on organic and natural foods and sustainability.
