Since the So All May Eat Cafe (SAME Cafe) opened, the lively, mostly organic foods restaurant has gained national media attention (and a Westword cover story) for its unique method for charging customers: pay-what-you-want. Diners ranging from the working class to the corporate class simply decide how much they'd like to fork over for their breakfast or lunch, whether that be a penny or a twenty. While the non-profit owes much of its success to the benevolence of mankind (and the devotion of its owners, Brad and Libby Birky), it's the food that keeps people coming back, a constantly changing menu of freshly baked pizza, salads, cookies and daily specials.
