Teens are at the heart of this cafe

The Ironworks Cafe is part of a teen employment program at the Goodman Community Center. When you eat at the cafe, you're helping teens learn basic job skills, food and customer service skills, plus they're seeing the ins and outs of managing a business. There are always comment cards near the cash register — the teens depend on your feedback to help them learn what they are doing right and how they could make your experience better, so if you have time, please fill one out!

The Ironworks Cafe employs teens under the guidance of restaurant professionals. They helped design the menu, run the front and back of the house and assist in marketing the cafe.

I love everything about this place. The wooden counter, tables and chairs, the plants, the windows to the bike path, the NPR classical music on the radio, the casual and friendly staff... Everything I have ordered I have loved.
