About the Café

History of the Café

Infused with the rich diversity of the neighborhood, since 2005 Haley House Bakery Café has offered made-from-scratch, delicious food, a vibrant, welcoming community space, and meaningful employment. As a social enterprise, Haley House Bakery Café’s mission is ambitious: to support the physical, economic and social well-being of the community, one meal at a time. After a year of re-envisioning, we’re excited to announce the relaunch of the updated cafe space!

Featured Dishes

Dish Name: Paczki
An easy rival to your favorite jelly doughnut, Paczki’s are a fried sugar dusted pastry filled with fill with seedless blackberry jam. Traditionally made to celebrate the last day before Lent fasting begins.
Dish Name: Potato Babka
Potato babka is a savory Polish classic made from grated potatoes, eggs, onions, and pieces of smoked, boiled or fried bacon and sausage. It is oven-baked and sandwiches a fried egg sour cream bacon in our monthly special curtesy of our staff member of the month, Mark Roble.


Wines of the Month

Wine Name:
McBride Sisters Black Girl Magic Rose
Rosé season is all year around. This sophisticated dry rosé has aromas of raspberry and orange blossom with delightful acidity and a mouthwatering fresh stone fruit and citrus palate. A gorgeous, bright and fresh wine that pairs perfectly with chocolate covered strawberries, grilled fish dishes and your holiday feast.
Wine Name:
Kumusha Cabernet Sauvignon
This fleshy and fruit-driven Cabernet is one of our favorite reds coming out of South Africa’s Western Cape. Notes of juicy red fruits, wild berries, cherries, and fresh-cut herbs dominate the wine’s ripe yet restrained palate.

About Our Re-Envisioning Process

After careful consideration, Haley House suspended restaurant operations in January 2019, in order to re-envision our business concept to prepare for long-term sustainability. After a year of re-envisioning, we relaunched with an updated business model and energized team in January 2020. We’re so grateful for the patience and support of our community throughout this process! Due to Covid-19, we are currently only allowing customers to participate via take-out or delivery.
