Who We Are & What We Do
Sankofa is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates to “go back and get it." At Cafe Sankofa Cooperative, we're taking a step back to "go back and get" our community, creating deep and lasting roots in the Southside neighborhood.

The Co-op building
Our space has a long history in the Southside community, once serving as a well-loved grocery store. Today, it's still a place to get great, fresh food, plus so much more.
Our building is truly a community space where we host things like a local farmers' market, our cafe, Blend Theory smoothies on Saturday, and weekly yoga.
Members are welcome to rent the space for any kind of event that's non-profit and in line with our mission.
What you'll find inside
Looking for a space to use?
