About this Business
From Our Editors
New Life Café serves gourmet sandwiches and specialty coffee drinks in a convivial environment while providing valuable job training to women recovering from abuse. Café con leche and espressos charm palates and dispel grogginess alongside such hearty fare as custom paninis. Two special sandwich and entree menus make a full rotation daily, much like the heads of most news anchors, and boast selections such as basil chicken sandwich and mediterranean veggie sandwiches. The café helps women recovering from various forms of abuse by providing hands-on job experience and training. Funds raised through New Life Café help defray costs for its host organization, the Chicago Dream Center, which operates multibranched ministries to help at-risk individuals, women subject to human trafficking, and families overcome the challenges of poverty.
