SAME stands for So All May Eat

SAME Café is a donation-based, fair exchange restaurant that serves healthy food to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. Our mission is to create community through healthy food access. We believe in healthy food, community, and dignity for everyone.

SAME Café is the first nonprofit restaurant in Denver! Everyone who comes through the door is treated exactly the same. Guests order from the healthy menu of mostly local, organic food and then let us know how they would like to participate in the community in exchange for the meal: volunteering time, giving produce, or donating money.

SAME Café has no set prices and no set menus. Daily selections are made using fresh, organic ingredients and are funded by donations of time, produce, and money from guests and supporters. Our philosophy is that everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food while being treated with dignity.

It is the intent of SAME Cafe to build community by providing a delicious and healthy meal in a dignified manner to anyone who walks through the door.

You can also arrange an evening meal or private party at SAME Café.  It’s an excellent venue for those looking to enjoy an intimate atmosphere with a unique mission.  It’s a great place for holiday parties, book clubs, corporate meetings, or even wedding receptions – we’ve had three fabulous weddings here!  If there’s a particular date you have in mind, please email info@soallmayeat.org to schedule or to get more details.
