A dream come true for so many, the Promise Café and Bakery is so much more than an eatery. One of Promise’s social enterprises, the Promise Café & Bakery provides employment as well as vocational and culinary arts training to individuals with special needs. Located in the heart of West Melbourne, our community has a front-row seat in experiencing everything these amazing individuals have to offer. These motivated men and women are truly thriving as they are working side-by-side with others from the community – learning from one another as they go.
Since its very early stages, the Promise Café & Bakery has experienced a tremendous amount of support from the local community, beginning with the city of West Melbourne. Designed as a model that can be replicated all over the world, the Promise Café & Bakery is a 7,000-square-foot facility that features both indoor and outdoor seating; a private dining room; a handicapped-accessible walk-up Ice-Cream Corner; a WiFi Hideaway, overlooking the City of West Melbourne’s Skate Park; a gift shoppe featuring unique pieces made by our Promise residents; as well as outdoor pavilions and picnic benches, overlooking the City of West Melbourne’s Splash Pad.
In addition to providing long-term employment for our Promise residents with special needs, the Promise Café & Bakery is a direct support of Promise, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides a vast Life Enrichment program, vocational training, a fitness and nutrition program and so much more within our affordable housing community in West Melbourne, Florida.
