Breakfast. Lunch. Opportunity.™

Bloom Café serves a fresh take on casual dining while helping people with disabilities grow their independence through a unique job training program.

The café is open from 9 a.m.–2:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. With contactless pickup and curbside delivery service, we can cater to your busy schedule.

Our featured meeting space, the Garden Room, is a great spot for your next business meeting or private party.

Need to connect to WiFi and get some work done? We’ve got that covered, too.

And from spring to fall, you can enjoy the view of our garden, expertly tended by Master Gardeners trained by the Missouri Botanical Garden.

Bloom Café is a social enterprise of Paraquad, The Disability Experts, designed to help people with disabilities prepare for employment. The program has three stages:

  1. Training Program: Students complete a 12-week, skills-based curriculum where they study topics, such as food handling and preparation, and learn soft skills, such as customer service and workplace etiquette.
  2. Paid Internship: Students progress to a short-term paid internship at Bloom Café and other restaurants to build skills and experience.
  3. Job Placement: When interns are job-ready, Paraquad assists them in finding and maintaining jobs in the community.

At Bloom Café, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to live and work independently.

Thank you for your interest in Bloom Café. We look forward to serving you soon!
