WHAT IS
CAFÉ MOMENTUM?

We provide a transformative experience through a 12-month paid post-release internship program for justice-involved youth. Our interns rotate through all aspects of the restaurant, focusing on life and social skills, coaching and development.

Café Momentum’s flagship location in Dallas, Texas, opened in 2015 with expansion underway. Nashville, Tennessee, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, are both slated to open in Q2 2022.

Our Food Trucks

Let’s call it our “Rolling Momentum.” Food trucks allow us to spread our mission to others whom might not be able to make it into the restaurant.
