Please note:  While we try to keep a current menu posted above, there are also daily specials which can change, well, daily and faster than we can make web page updates. However, it is guaranteed to be special! So please, call to find out what our chef has planned.  You can also discover which soups and sides are being served with the same phone call.  OR just come on in and check out the board.

. Mission .

Our aim is to serve quality, affordable food in an atmosphere that promotes personal connections.

Café donations support the Life Enrichment Center’s free community meals and programs.

. Vision .

The Findlay Street Café strives to be a place of

  • Excellence in food and service
  • Community, where conversations begin and relationships grow
  • Sustenance for patrons, the Life Enrichment Center, and the community

. East Dayton .

Food insecurity is an ever-present reality in our city. In the 45403/04 zip codes the median annual income is between 26 and 28 thousand dollars. Around 8 percent of households lack full plumbing and 12 percent lack complete kitchens. About 6,000 single family households are in the area. ( Non-profit agencies, such as the Life Enrichment Center strive to meet people living in the often forgotten margin of society.  Food is the first item needed, but the total needs reach much deeper.

. You can make a difference .

Partner with us to impact lives and support families in our own city.
