Haley House Bakery Café: Building Connections Through Food

By Virginia DePina

The Haley House Bakery Café has been a meeting place for Roxbury residents to enjoy great food, gather as a community and build unlikely friendships and connections for ten years. Kathe McKenna, founder of the café, wanted to offer the Dudley Square neighborhood a place to eat healthy, locally-sourced, and nutritous food at affordable prices.The café operates as a non-profit organization that is 90% self-sustaining. The extra funds generated from the sales support local community programs. 

There’s more to this café than just great food. With the support of the community, the Haley House will continue serving authentic cuisine, offer cultural prgramming, and begin a new pizza shop that will challenge the status quo of the restaurant industry.
