This cafe is located on the campus of Hope Village, a residential facility for developmentally disabled adults. Some residents serve as greeters and servers, and in that respect it serves as a supervised workshop for them. The lunch menu includes a hot plate special (today...it was meatloaf) plus a good variety of sandwiches, soups and salads. I enjoyed a tuna salad piled in an avocado half and my guest had a veggie sandwich. Everything was great and the service was attentive and capable. Good place for lunch with the added benefit of having a “mission” backstory. There is also a gift shop offering items made by residents. This is a little hard to find but worth the effort!More

The best chicken salad anywhere! Plus, you get to see the Villagers and that puts a smile on anyone's face. Great organization to support!

Best soup and sandwich. Their tomato soup is fabulous! The service makes this place special since it is the residents who run the restaurant. They take great pride in their work.

I love this place and it is my favorite tea room . The staff is very congenial . It is a tea room run by the Hope Village rehab ctr. and it benefits the residents who are mentally disabled . Some of the servers and...bus boys are residents and the volunteers do the more complicated things . They also sell art works like unique jewelries , figurines and other seasonal decorations ,and etc. made by the rexidents under the sipervision of a volunteer . This place has a lot of heart but the food is also well made and delicious ! I love their Spinach, shrimp salad with strawberries and candied nuts . Their Soup and Sandwich Deluxe meal deal is absolutely my favorite - 4 kinds of mini sandwiches with chips and soup ( with 1 free refill ) plus dessert ! My other fave is their bacon potato soup and raspberry iced tea . They also serve toasted garlic bread while you wait for your meal .More

Hope Village has the best food, service and love share with you! My daughters and I look forward to each treat of eating here! You can enjoy soups, sandwiches and salads made by a real chef not any of this prefab stuff. Hope Village serves...nice size serving not like many tea rooms and definitely would be an enjoyable lunch for anyone!More

Eating here just makes me happy. The food is excellent and the servers are Hope Village residents overseen by volunteers. They are cheerful and enjoy their work.

Hope Village Café is part of the Hope Village campus for mentally challenged adults, it has residential and day care facilities. One of the options they have is the Café. The Café is only open Tuesday through Friday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm., the...servers are either residents or volunteers. This makes the service even better, no one has to be there, they are there by choice. The food is generally “tea room” type food (homemade soups, salads and sandwiches) but the daily specials are usually excellent. The prices are very low and I’m not sure how they are staying open. They also have a very good dessert selection.More
