It serves *awesome* food, most locally grown and gives back a huge portion of the profits to the community. Many of the *employees* are volunteers. It is a non-profit and allows patrons to buy vouchers that will then go to feed those less fortunate.
I had a plate of Nachos that looked like a piece of art. Blue Tortilla Chips, Corn, Black Beans, Ground Beef, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Onions, Mango....
The hubby had a Black Bean &Yam Burger. Total Vegetarian without seeming like it was vegetarian. Totally hit the spot for hubby who is a meat and potatoes man.
Little Man, Hayden had Garlic Cheese Bread with Marinara dipping sauce.
To read more about, Common Table, go here. What a great concept and I am hoping that they continue to be successful. I would *love* to see more places like these pop up around the country.
We have a Panera Cares Cafe here in Portland that recently opened where patrons pay what they can. They are one of the first chain restaurants to convert some of their locations into this non-profit model. So far they have been quite successful. Most patrons, pay more than the suggested prices.
Wouldn't it be great if we could....
