About 541 Eatery & Exchange
541 is a cafe that believes everyone deserves access to good food. We give people the opportunity to help someone else pay for their meal by "buying buttons". Each button is worth $1, and anyone can use up to 5 buttons a day from the button jar to buy whatever they would like from the menu.
We believe there is dignity in choice, and that eating together fosters a diverse community of belonging around the table.
We use our space and proceeds from food sales to host free community groups and youth programming.
