Designed to capture the spirit of a downtown marketplace, this renovated 4,100 square foot café space features a large A-frame roof with 17-foot ceilings. Features include display cooking stations, a bar/lounge and patio dining space. Exposed red brick walls with high window sills pay homage to nearby Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Community center updates began with reinventing the former café into a restaurant-style atmosphere that reflects a new attitude toward the dining experience. The behind-the-scenes serving lines were replaced with new food stations, open to dining areas. The second phase of renovations resulted in an updated entry experience and inviting activity areas. This included reinventing the main lobby and reception desk, general store renovations to add a coffee shop and converting previously underutilized parlor in to a theater.

The contemporary café design is more open than its predecessor and allows for greater circulation space between the food offerings. The resulting design took cues from a local farmers market, focusing on fresh foods (some locally sourced during the summer) and a wide range of options. New to the café are a coffee shop, Grab-N-Go offerings, and a pizza station, which complement a salad bar, deli, and hot entrée station. Another new dining experience to be offered is a patio dining component.
