The concept of this restaurant, "No One Goes Hungry" It is pay what you can or work for your food. Even with that or because of that it has great food and atmosphere. I enjoy eating here.

Grace Cafe allows a diner to pay for a meal, not pay, or pay more so that someone else can dine. The food is surprisingly delicious, based on local ingredients, wholesome and hearty. A bowl of vegetable soup served with grilled bread was a lifesaver...More

I've been coming here since Grace Cafe opened. It never disappoints! Nice people, reasonable prices (I always give them an extra twenty bucks, in "pay-it-forward" fashion, and it still feels like a bargain), lovely setting, great food--and by patronizing this place, you're doing a good...More

Cannot speak highly enough about the quality and flavor of my first meal at Grace Cafe. It was just what I needed. My husband and I each had a different sandwich and we shared a cup of soup and small salad. Just scrumptious! Fantastic experience...More

Great food, atmosphere, and a great cause. Pay what you can, volunteer if you're broke, and the food is awesome! The menu is daily specials of locally procured ingredients, bread from local bakery, all fresh.
