Friday, May 24th, marks the grand opening of the Thistle Stop Cafe
. Mayor Karl Dean
will participate in the official ceremony and lead a ribbon cutting, then the Nashville community is invited to an Open House from 12:00pm - 2:00pm. The Cafe is located at 5128 Charlotte Pike
, anchoring the corner of the Thistle Farms building that also houses our bath and body care manufacturing facility, and paper-making and sewing studios.
Our founder, Becca Stevens
says, “With the theme of ‘a story in every cup,’ Thistle Stop Café is the next step in creating a community of hospitality and love that will nourish everyone who thirsts for justice as well as a great cup of tea. The Cafe has hired six residents and graduates of Magdalene, the residential program, which will help them become financially independent.”
We invite all to visit us tomorrow between 12:00pm - 2:00pm or during our regular business hours of 7:00am - 2:00pm, Monday through Friday, starting Tuesday, May 28th.
