Coffee shop supports westside community

If you want more than a good cup of coffee, then you’ve come to the right place.

The Guadalupe Street Coffee is serving up more than foamy, vanilla nut lattes. The westside coffee shop is a community development project operated by the Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS) Health and Human Services.

Providing a safe after school environment, the coffee shop offers community members and area youth with the following services:

• Computer use
• Free Wi-Fi
• Art gallery space
• Job training opportunities
• College application assistant
• After-school activities for local youth
• Free summer lunch and snack program
• Culinary program for students interested in culinary arts or restaurant management
• A professional meeting room equipped with conference call capabilities and an LCD projector
(Some services are provided through local partnerships.)

During the summer, Guadalupe Street Coffee hosts a work training “Java” program that teaches youth the business side of operating a coffee shop.

Guadalupe Street Coffee is open daily for coffee and lunch. Click HERE to see the daily lunch specials.

On Tuesday, July 31, Guadalupe Street Coffee will participate in a Cash Mob (much like a flash mob but with cash on hand.) The event supports small businesses.
