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.
