Me and two of my friends decided to check out a new restaurant in Charlotte, NC. When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted with a big smile and we loved the ambience of Community Matters Cafe. The menu was concise and simple with both Breakfast, Brunch, and Lunch options.I ordered the hot Cinnamon Bun Mocha and it was delicious! The cream on top was so good and it felt like I was having a dessert beverage. For Lunch I ordered the New Orleans Fried Chicken Sandwich with cheddar grits. I loved the cheesy grits and it was yummy. The chicken sandwich wasn’t too spicy and it was straight fire!Overall, it was delicious and I totally recommend this restaurant if you are in the Uptown area of Charlotte, NC!

One of the best coffee shops in town and one of the best ways to help folks who are getting their life back together and learning work skills and be a part of once again as they are restored to sanity and back to a part of life once again. The Honey bee latte is incredible, and the food is tasty—an excellent opportunity for everyone to participate. There is even an event space that can comfortably fit about thirty folks for a meeting or seminar. William is the manager and is very knowledgeable and helpful on managing the event space. Hope is restored here!

This scramble was delicious! I had it without the sausage it comes with and it was one of the tastiest dishes I've had. The freshly made bread and homemade peach preserves was the perfect accompaniment. I enjoy supporting this organization given their commitment to the community. It's a great place to do business meetings as well.

Food was very good and the people that work here are super friendly!! Sugared French toast is terrific as was the classic breakfast and caramel macchiato. The chalkboard in the ladies room is sweet.

I came here after hours on a Yelp elite event I was so thankful for the opportunity to be able to learn about this business and all the amazing things they are doing in the community and for everyone that are struggling with addiction. We spoke with one of the managers Paul to hear first hand how much good they are doing at this amazing cafe. We had a nice spread of food that included French toast, cookies, chicken sandwich, salad and ricotta toast. Out of all the food and drink options the chai tea latte was out of this World delicious and flavorful. The ricotta toast was creamy and with some tartness from the tomatoes. I will definitely return again not just because of how great the food and drinks are but because it is very rare you get to eat at a place that is doing so much good in the community.

Love this place. The atmosphere and set up are so nice and spacious, clean, inviting, and so much to admire from their merch to their coffee roasting set up & selection. Coffee was smooth and easy to drinkService was attentive but not suffocating.Food was fresh and tasty I tried their signature johnny cakes with pulled pork . I was apprehensive at 1st thinking it could be spicy but it wasn't it was so tasty and complex in flavors. My girl got the classic breakfast and was pleased.The baked goods seemed a little underwhelming so we skipped that sectionThe mission statement for this cafe really warms your heart. We love food with a purpose and supporting local businesses that help the community like this one.Check them out and be sure to go and support this amazing cause and get great eats in the process!
The facility is amazing and is super clean ... the staff is very friendly and I was super impressed with our first breakfast here and hope to return...Downtown views but off the main drag such as no traffic worries and plenty of parking...Outdoor dining is spacious!Choices are limited for breakfast but they cover all the necessary staples!Every customer we observed had a smile!When you enter it is an internet cafe area and bustling with the downtown crowd sampling all the various coffees and brews.Our experience was wonderful!
