More than a cafe.
More than a coffee shop.
We are part of a movement to bridge the gap to bring women together in a movement for economic freedom.
We are proud to be part of the Thistle Farms family. Thistle Farms is a residential community and a social enterprise for women who have survived prostitution, trafficking, and addiction.
Thistle Stop Cafe is a tangible sign of the deeper meaning of healing and the honor of serving. It can be a hard and lonely world. We are proud to be more than a coffee shop. We invite you to come to the café whenever you are thirsty for tea, coffee, and a good story. This is a space for all who thirst for justice.
Thistle Stop Cafe is not just any establishment that you might find, it is a cafe that was built by and for the community. We are staffed by Thistle Farmers which includes both the Women of Magdalene and volunteers from the community. Thistle Stop Cafe is a home to anyone who walks through the doors, whether that is for a cup of coffee or to join the movement. We are proud to truly be a witness to the truth that in the end, love is more powerful than all the forces that drive women to the streets.
