Serving a Take-away Brown Bag Breakfast

Monday Through Friday

Our Mission

The mission of Sunrise Cafe is to develop and nurture deep connections – connections among guests, between guests and volunteers and between guests and the community. Sunrise provides a safe space for New Haven’s food insecure and unhoused to rest, have conversations and prepare for the day’s challenges with a full stomach. Sunrise’s free nutritious breakfast is served to all with warmth, friendship, compassion, kindness, dignity, support and respect. For many guests, the Cafe is also the entry point for housing, mental and physical health, and job placement services provided at the Cafe by partner organizations.
