GA: What is Cherubs Café?
Sister Nancy: Holy Angels opened Cherubs Café nearly 20 years ago in Downtown Belmont – we like to say we are the heart of Main Street. Our mission statement reads: Cherubs Café provides vocational training and meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual developmental disabilities. We are open for breakfast – and it is the best around.
GA: I hear your chicken salad is the best around!
Sister Nancy: Our chicken pecan salad is our signature salad. It has been on the menu since the beginning. We serve it in salads and sandwiches – and it is perfect to take home by the pound.
GA: We hear you have a new and improved menu?
Sister Nancy: We recently revised our café menu to feature fresh from the garden vegetables, as they become available. Holy Angels’ horticulture therapy program features 12 beds of vegetables used at Cherubs Café. We also have herbs growing in our two beds in the Belmont Community Garden.
GA: So this is an anniversary year for Cherubs?
Sister Nancy: In December Cherubs Café will celebrate our 20th anniversary on Main Street in Belmont. Less than two years later we opened Cherubs Candy Bouquet. Our Belmont and Gaston County neighbors have supported us these 20 years. Most recently we opened Cherubs Market in Cramerton.
GA: What is the best thing about Cherubs?
Sister Nancy: When you visit Cherubs Café – you will be greeted with a huge smile by
one of our supported employees. Our guests will experience the abilities of our folks with intellectual developmental disabilities. At Holy Angels we focus on helping each person reach their highest potential. Many friendships have developed through Cherubs Café.
GA: Do you guys do catering?
Sister Nancy: Cherubs Café has a special menu for catering. We provide delivery and set up of trays (fruit, sandwiches, desserts) as well as boxed lunches. We will cater your luncheon and breakfast meetings.
GA: Are you available to host evening meetings in house?
Sister Nancy: We open for breakfast beginning at 7:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. However, we will be happy to provide an evening meeting featuring our delicious food and desserts. Simply call our Cherubs Café staff to get it on the calendar.
