Union Cafe

From BJ Woodworth

In 16 days the Union Station will open at the Union Project 801 N. Negley Ave. For those of who do not know the Union Project is home of the Open Door ( Pittsburgh Presbytery New Church Development) and the Union Station café is going to be a huge gift and blessing to the East End, the Union Project and the Open Door.

So come buy and bring a friend or two for your morning or afternoon cup of coffee, for lunch or an evening dessert. It is a great place to study! The great thing about this café is it has a plethora of outdoor seating which is hard to find in the East End. It offers free wireless as well! So help us spread the word! Here is the official press release.

Union Station Cafe

The Union Project provides neighborhood space to connect, create and celebrate. Through the restoration and reuse of the abandoned, blighted, former Union Baptist Church, the Union Project provides gathering and working space for artists, community builders and people of faith. Additionally, as key to meeting its mission and focusing on sustainability, the Union Project is initiating several social enterprises that employ local at-risk youth and low-income individuals.

The first of these social enterprises, Union Station café will open for business on May 5. Hours of operation will be 7 am to 10 pm, 7 days a week. Union Station café will serve coffee and cold drinks, light breakfast and lunch menus, and dessert options. Join us for an opening party on Friday, May 5 as part of our monthly First Friday Happy Hours. Contact for information about Union Station Café.

"The Union Station café is the new hot spot in the neighborhood. Join neighbors in a relaxed atmosphere were you can sit and chat, utilize the free Internet connection, read, or have a quick snack." says new Union Station manager Antwan Davis.
