Prior to opening the cafe, Beth ran the local soup kitchen at the Episcopal Church in Westfield for nearly five years. It is there that she said she attained her cooking know-how as well as truly gained a love for feeding people.
"Even though I don't work at the soup kitchen anymore some of my regulars from there still stop in to see what is going on at the cafe. I am happy to continue to feed them. Having my cafe right here in Westfield helps to keep me connected to the community. By joining the Chamber of Commerce I feel like I am contributing and giving back to Westfield."
