Founded on the principle of “Serving good food for the greater good,” the restaurant is Denver’s first non-profit eatery. Patrons decide what they are going to pay. If they are able to pay more than a standard price, they are encouraged to do so. Conversely, if patrons are unable to spring for their lunch, the café’s staff will happily put them to work for an hour, asking them to chop veggies, wash dishes, serve other patrons, or perform routine maintenance. Instead of a cashier, when patrons are ready to leave, they stop by a cash box and leave what they choose.
