The saline community
Community means everything to us at Brewed Awakenings Cafe.
On a personal note, the Saline community is the place that has helped raise Kim & Mike’s two boys into the incredible young men that they have become. We will continually be grateful to everyone & everything that has had a hand in this. As a cafe, it is our amazing community that has directly impacted our success; it is our community that continues to encourage us; it is our community that makes us smile each time they step through our doors. That is why we give back to the Saline community that supports us so wholly.
We respect and value our role as a member of our local community and wish to give back in any way we can. We aim to support in as many ways as possible, especially those that help the people in our community directly.
For our community, we want to be a place where people gather, make friends, & recognize friendly faces. Brewed Awakenings Cafe strives to be the coffee shop that you call home. We want to be your third place – away from work & home – that you feel comfortable enough to read, hang out at, meet with friends, or get some work done.
We provide a space for local people to show their work as well. Local photographers hang their art on the walls surrounding our fireplace. Our Brewed Awakenings merchandise is designed & created by our very own staff itself! Local talent is invited in to perform at both our open mic nights as well as Saturday night performances (contact us to book your performance). Book signings have occurred to help local authors introduce their latest works. Many items made by local people such as pins, jewelry, books, candles, postcards & more are offered for sale (with full sale going directly to the creator). We are always open to new ways to use our space - contact us to get involved!
