SAME Café’s mission of serving good food for the greater good says it all. Committed to presenting culinary delights to all who walk through the door, it is all about food and community, and not so much about price.
SAME is the 1st nonprofit restaurant in Denver. Its patrons set the price for their mostly local, organic cuisine. If you can give more, please do. If you have a little less, pay what you can. If your pockets are empty, exchange an hour of volunteer work at SAME for one of the café’s mouth-watering meals.
It is the intent of SAME Cafe to build a healthy community by providing a basic need of food in a respectful and dignified manner to anyone who walks through the door.
SAME Cafe is unique in the lack of a set menu as well as set prices. Daily selections are made using fresh, organic ingredients, and funded by the donations of patrons. Instead of a cash register, a donation box is available for one to pay what they felt their meal was worth. Our philosophy is that everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food while being treated with dignity.
You can also arrange an evening meal or private party at SAME Café. It’s an excellent venue for those looking to enjoy an intimate atmosphere with a unique mission. It’s a great place for holiday parties, book clubs, corporate meetings, or even wedding receptions – we’ve had three weddings here that were fabulous! If there’s a particular date you have in mind then please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule or get more details.
