Race Street Cafe

About us

Sit inside the low-key café and you'll feel like you've settled into a rustic bistro: heavy wood beams hold up the ceiling, a wood stove warms the room, and a gas street lamp throws dim light on exposed brick. During the warmer months, you are likely to find the large barn doors on the front of the building propped wide open looking out onto the sidewalk dining and passers-by.

Friendly bartenders and a broad selection of 15 beers on tap, with one hand pump, help you wet your whistle. The menu is simple but accomplished with a blackboard list of specials and a focus on the seasonality of local products. From housemade hot and cold soups to an extensive sandwich collection and entree options to entice every diner including Gluten-free, Vegetarian, and Vegan offerings.


Take a table by the open window and you'll feel right at home in Old City--albeit a less crowded, less pretentious corner of the neighborhood.


Located in the heart of the old city gallery district, Race Street Cafe is proud to display a new set of art featuring local and student artists beginning every first Friday. Stop by to see our current display.
