Recovering community one coffee, one meal, one life at a time”
– Mike Macdonald • General Manager, Eleven l Eleven

Eleven l Eleven Memorial Café and Eatery is a restaurant for EVERYONE

It is inclusive, whether you are in recovery or not.

It will be a place to have a meal, enjoy a coffee, gather, grow, learn, share, offer hope and create community. This will be a trendy establishment for eating and socializing without alcohol.

The Café will have seating for approximately 125 people covering the top and bottom levels of 4,600 square feet; outside seating option will be available in the warmer months. As will be an outside grill and beverage station for when you are walking your dog on the path or perhaps riding your bicycle. We will offer a diversely priced menu ($8-$25) and house roasted coffee selection from a simple $2 brewed coffee to a $6 latte. All profits go towards helping more men and their families recover.

The atmosphere is designed to be a laid back and relaxed feel. Whether you are a first-time patron or a regular; our “welcome home… you are no longer alone feel” will be felt as soon as you walk through the doors.

The menu selection is a “keep it simple” eatery offering 6 main food items for breakfast and 6 for lunch/dinner (will change this up per the seasons), and a selection of soups, and salads. We will also have a Twelve X Twelve main selection that can be ordered anytime. Twelve items at twelve dollars each that we can play off the Twelve steps, promises and virtues.

We believe in supporting our community and will source our meat and produce locally. Our staff will be one of the best features of the cafe inspiring hope and offering great service.

The Recovery Café and Eatery is under the FSRC umbrella with the profits serving our social enterprise to subsidize treatment for men and their families and supporting our operations.

My name is Chris and I am an addict in recovery.

As tools in my recovery from addiction, fitness and connecting with nature are absolutely indispensable to me, and hopefully showing others and myself the benefits of these may act as a reminder that we can live better lives if we put in the effort. Training and racing with others in recovery helps to keep me on track with all the aspects of my recovery.As tools in my recovery from addiction, fitness and connecting with nature are absolutely indispensable to me, and hopefully showing others and myself the benefits of these may act as a reminder that we can live better lives if we put in the effort.

My name is Richy and I am an addict in recovery.

 

I have been battling addiction for 15 years. During that time, I have been in and out of correctional institutions and treatment centers. During my drug abuse, I ignored my physical health. I was skinny, sleep deprived and didn’t eat. I experienced psychosis from being awake for long periods of time. The people around me were concerned about my physical state. I was constantly stressed; a constant battle finding ways and means to get more. I was angry, and I took it out on everybody that I came across.
