Our story

The Goldfinch Cafe is a dream for the city we love.  A city of abundant generosity and kindness. A city of inclusion and hope. Our plan is to see The Goldfinch Cafe come to  beautiful downtown Aurora with the help of our neighbors. Following the example of the over 50 successful  “pay what you can” cafes here in the US, under the model of One World Everybody Eats, The Goldfinch Cafe will be Aurora’s new innovative socially conscious cafe. The first pay-what -you-can-community-restaurant will offer locally sourced food, bringing dignity back to the table and offering a solution to what people are hungry for today, sustainable change.
