Serving Good Food for the Greater Good
Organic and mostly local mouth-watering food and a commitment to service are the vital roots of the first nonprofit restaurant in Denver. The restaurant, SAME Cafe, originated from the basic belief that “everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food while being treated with dignity.” Acting on this belief, SAME Cafe has cleverly contrived a system by which everyone gets the chance to eat a meal made with healthy and sustainable food.
Sustainable for the planet and your health, SAME Cafe’s food is helping to build a healthy community one meal at a time. Patrons set the price, paying the amount they are able to, and for those who seek another means of exchange, SAME cafe offers volunteer work opportunities. One hour of volunteer work at SAME cafe equals one of the cafe’s healthy and delicious meals.
In addition to a lack of set prices, SAME Cafe lacks a set menu, instead offering a daily menu based upon what is fresh and in season at the moment. For instance, if you were to stop by SAME Cafe today, Friday June 14th, you would be offered a menu that includes tortilla soup, cold fruit soup, garden greens, asian slaw with peanut vinaigrette, Thai pizza, and last but not least, cheesy pesto pizza.
Without a set menu or set prices, SAME Cafe has redefined the concept of a restaurant. In the true American spirit, SAME Cafe is created by and for the people. One delicious meal at a time, SAME Cafe acts to support the health of the Denver community. Serving the greater good never tasted so delicious.
SAME Cafe is located at 2023 E. Colfax Ave. Denver CO 80206.
