The Café @ the YW

What is The Café @ the YW?

At the Cafe at the YW, we are setting the table for change. The Cafe provides excellent hot, cold and specialty beverages, pastries and catering for events at the YW using the freshest local ingredients available all while supporting the mission of the YWCA of Southern Arizona. The Café offers a culinary program to provide job training to at-risk young women.


The Cafe has two locations: 1) Inside the Frances McClelland Community Center, 525 N. Bonita Ave, we offer delicious beverages & "grab & go" sandwiches and salads. Our hours are Monday-Friday 8:00-4:00. 2) Inside El Rio Community Health Center, 839 W. Congress, we offer made to order breakfast & lunch. Our hours are Monday-Friday 7:30-3:00.


How is the Café connected to the YWCA?

The Cafe @ the YW is a social enterprise of the YWCA. The Café creates employment opportunities for young women as part of our expanding YWorks programming; all proceeds from The Café are used to support the YWCA’s mission.
