Servicing our residents and extended community, the Café is conveniently located at the corner of St. Clair Ave. East and O’Connor.

The Café has been running successfully thanks to the dedication and commitment of our helpful volunteers that take the time to care for it every day.

You will find all the basics including freshly served food, coffee, sandwiches, and soups straight from our SCOC kitchen. Residents, staff and visitors from outside our community frequent the store for its selection of groceries, cards, books and gifts. It’s all about the convenience of being able to purchase them so close to home and work.
