Breaking Bread Cafe & Catering is a casual, sit-down restaurant offering a unique style of fresh, flavorful and healthy global comfort foods.

Breaking Bread is a program of Appetite For Change (AFC), a community-based nonprofit using food as a tool to build health, wealth and social change. Appetite For Change envisions sustainable, local food systems, created and led by thriving, socially connected families and communities.

Breaking Bread is creating new jobs, training local residents and giving confidence to other entrepreneurs who will become inspired to bring new business to North Minneapolis. We are supporting the new era of economic development on West Broadway Avenue and are proud members of the West Broadway Business and Area Coalition & Northside Fresh Coalition.


Appetite For Change is building a youth-led food justice movement in North Minneapolis.  We seek to address the lack of real-food access, jobs and opportunities for teens to engage in community development. The North Minneapolis community is over-saturated by fast food and corner store options. The accompanying jobs deficit that goes along with the absence of a sustainable and community-owned food system makes meaningful youth engagement difficult.NEW LOGO-Stacked-Grey

Breaking Bread seats 56 persons in the indoor dining room and 66 persons on the seasonal outdoor patio. A service counter and curbside parking allows for easy, fast take-away orders. Breaking Bread Cafe & Catering’s corporate boxed lunch and catering menu allows us to extend our services beyond the West Broadway location. We use some space in Kindred Kitchen, which is a shared commercial kitchen incubating small food entrepreneurs and helping emerging food businesses grow.
