We served 221 guests in August!

The Crescent City Cafe is a grassroots project that serves restaurant-style breakfast meals, with dignity, to people who are homeless and low-income. It is funded entirely by donations and run by young-adult volunteers. The Cafe has served over 11,000 Guests since 2009! The Me + Three Brunch Fundraiser simulates a regular Cafe event, and allows paying donors to see what we do and how we do it. It serves as a major way that the Crescent City Cafe earns the funds to operate. A donation of only $20 covers your meal + three meals for future cafe guests who are homeless or low- income in New Orleans.  Reserve your seat and make a $20 donation here! (click here to donate for multiple people attending.)
