Creating Community. Extending Hope.
The heart of The Meeting Place Café is to impact and shape the lives of the community around us with good coffee, service, and quality friendships.
The café culture is not discriminatory of any individual, stereotype or subculture; there is rarely a circumstance that allows such diversity in terms of participants, mood, and opportunity as cafes do. It provides individuals and groups the opportunity for completely intimate & meaningful or light-hearted & carefree conversation. Our lives are filled with so many mechanisms that distract and detract from spending time with the people in our lives, or ourselves. We believe cafes help negate these distractions and allow people to truly exist in each other’s presence; delighting in the slow passing of time and elongated pauses in conversation. These moments remind us that we are a human being, not just a human doing.
Our focus is community, both the one we create and the demographic around us. If the only interaction with our community allowed at the time is a smile and/or pleasantry, we believe even this could be the seed that we are able to sow. We aim to create a meeting place where each person feels comfortable within our walls, whilst keeping everything donation based. Through the generosity of Elixir Coffee and time donated by our team members we are able to do so.
This is what The Meeting Place Café lives and breathes. Our hours are located here at the home page and your first time with us is on the house. We look forward to meeting you!
