How Does Tipping Work in the Cafe?

We are a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative. Tips play a big role in keeping us up and running.

Performers rely on your tips for their pay for the evening (Jars on THE TABLE — they are marked for performers.)

We’re proud to pay all staff at least $14.40 per hour and offer benefits. Your tipping is shared among all hourly staff (counter people, bartenders, cooks) on an equal basis. This approach emphasizes the connected team effort that it takes to serve our community café! Your generosity is appreciated. (Cash tip jars located on bar and front counter; you may also tip by credit card on your food/beverage bill.)
