Comfort Cafe doling out free Christmas dinners on Christmas day
Since it opened back in June, Comfort Cafe, 3945 Tennyson Street, has fed the community as a non-profit, pay-what-you-can restaurant, offering comfort-food meals to anyone who walks through the door for however much of a donation that person can muster up.
And on Saturday, it will be providing Christmas dinner for free.
"We got a number of donations from merchants," says Karen Bruno, the volunteer coordinator at the Comfort Cafe. "Enough that we don't have to ask for donations for meals on Christmas day."
This will enable the volunteer team to serve a veritable feast, with dishes that include quiche with French cheese and truffles, sage-roasted turkey breast, and housemade tamales with green chile.
The eatery will serve meals to anyone who walks through the door from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
