Program Story

Queen Street Commons Café

The Queen Street Commons Café, located at 43 Queen Street South in Kitchener, is the kind of gathering place that is central to community vitality. All are welcome in the café. We host this space with the help of volunteers - inviting people into reciprocal relationships and working together to build respect, inclusion and conversation together. We invite people to enjoy our affordable, vegetarian home-style meals, snacks, desserts, and fresh-roasted coffee in downtown Kitchener. Prices are set low because we have created a space where people can come together on equal footing. By offering food that is affordable, and by not required that people make a purchase to be in the space, we host a café where are all welcome, no matter their income.

Donation Impact

Volunteer at the café and enjoy the unique combination of skill building, helping others, and enjoying those around us. We invite you to become involved. Purchase a bag of take-home coffee or even a coffee series. Buy seven installments of coffee and receive the eighth free.

Giving Opportunity

Come and join us for a cup of coffee! We are pleased to offer Fair Trade Organic Single Origin Coffee, and Single Origin Coffees and Blends for sale at the café. We are roasting our own beans in house and serving fresh roasted coffee by the cup and in take-home bags.
