Summer's last celebration is here
A time to lift up workers everywhere
A time to reflect on all our needs
A time to be grateful- yes indeed!
Celebrated each year on the first Monday in September, this holiday was born amid violence and unrest over oppressive working conditions. Labor Day is meant to honor not just the individual worker, but what workers accomplish together through activism and organizing. In the 1880s, workers marched down the streets and spoke truth to power. They commiserated over dismal working conditions and demanded justice. Their goals were not unrealistic: a livable wage, a safe environment, and eight-hour workdays.
The national holiday emerged in 1894, but did not improve conditions for the people it sought to honor, and was little more than lip service from politicians. As the U.S. House Committee on Labor said in its 1894 report on the legislation: “So long as the laboring man can feel that he holds an honorable as well as a useful place in the body politic, so long will he be a loyal and faithful citizen.” It would take another 44 years for the U.S. to set a minimum wage, mandate a shorter workweek, and limit child labor with the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Café’s food philosophy is the reason its menus and meals have become a popular draw to our community. Our philosophy is to find a celebration that falls on each Saturday (or close to it) from any tradition or place on the planet.
Each week the Chef team searches the world for these opportunities to celebrate our community. We embrace cuisine from around the world and bring it to the table for all to eat. Our desire is to provide palette-expanding opportunities that meet the needs of all our guests.
Our food is made from scratch – rarely opening cans or boxes – and meets the needs of any dietary preference or restriction. Our weekly menu offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free foods as well as meat or fish protein options.
We believe that when we sit down together and share a meal we become a beloved community – a family who shares times of celebration and traditions.
