Food with Purpose- Under Construction

12 Dade Street, Roxbury, MA 02119  (Directions)

Since January 2019, a team of staff, management and board has been working to develop an updated business plan for Haley House Bakery Cafe. We’re excited to announce that on May 20, our board voted on a plan developed by this group and we plan to re-open in the fall of 2019. We look forward to sharing more about this soon!

While the Cafe’s restaurant operations are paused, our Catering and Wholesale baking operations are still going strong, as well as our Take Back the Kitchen Program, Urban Farming, and programs based in the South End.

As a social enterprise, Haley House Bakery Café’s mission has always been ambitious: to support the physical, economic and social well-being of the community. Infused with the rich diversity of the neighborhood, from 2005-2019 Haley House Bakery Café has offered made-from-scratch, delicious food and a vibrant, welcoming community space. 

In response to significant changes in the neighborhood and after careful consideration, Haley House decided to temporarily suspend restaurant operations effective January 12, 2019, in order to review and renew our business concept, with the goal of reopening restaurant operations later in the year.
