OUR MISSION AND VALUES
Our mission—to create joyful moments for our community by sharing food with love
Our values reflect the history of our founders, who built a small, humble cafe in order to share art, food, and friendship.
Our values reflect a goal to progress beyond this history as we grow into a new transformative model.
Our business is built to support our values, our continued learning, and our commitment to an ethics of love. We believe in promoting care, respect, integrity, safety, and transparency in our workplace.
Our core values: empathy, creativity, equity, community
We also center:
• On going training for leadership
• Curiosity/awareness/knowledge for all staff
• Diversity and inclusion
• Openness to change
• Respect and honesty
• Equitable and fair compensation
• Optimism and hope, assuming the best in all
• Consistency and patience
• Teamwork and collaboration
Our Business Practices are informed by our mission and our values. Above all, we recognize that our mission and values are not permanent, our learning is ongoing, practices are never static, and that change and collaborative input is an expected and healthy part of growth.
This mission was revised on 6.8.21 after a year long inquiry among our core management staff. We will review and revise with input and guidance on an ongoing basis.
