Central Café

6 am-7 pm Mon-Sat
Sundays 7 am-7 pm


Central Café isn’t known just for serving Equal Exchange fairly traded organic coffee and tea, or its great service – it’s also a breakfast destination.

The place is known for its tasty rendition of that stalwart southern tradition known as “Biscuits and Gravy.” The sausage gravy (more than 25 gallons a week!) is made at the store, using sausage that has been ground and seasoned in our Meat Market.

There is seating for a couple dozen people in Central Café, along with a toaster oven and microwave. So even if you’re not in the mood for biscuits and gravy, you can sit down to a meal of hot, fresh oatmeal, or a couple of varieties of breakfast bagels.

We serve fairly traded Equal Exchange coffees and teas, and all organic milk – with your choice of dairy, soy, almond, coconut or rice milk. Self-serve drip coffee is available in four sizes.

Central Café also offers pastries, muffins and cookies, and even beverage-related housewares like water bottles, mugs and commuter cups.
The café composts nearly 100 percent of its waste – they’re working on replacing a few more items with compostable alternatives so they can reach their goal of 100 percent.
