Prepping for our move - with your help!

We are delighted to announce that we raised over $45,000 in our IndieGogo crowdfunding campaign! Thanks to everyone who has given! That money will go a long way toward building out our new space (see below for a rough mock-up of the new restaurant).

We'll be accepting in-house donations at the Cafe through this Spring, so if you haven't had a chance to support the Sunlight Cafe, come and see us before the big move!

We're moving just around the corner from our current location later this year. It wasn't our first choice to move from the space we've been in for three decades, but it's the move that makes the most sense. Our current landlord wouldn't grant us another long-term lease because of the imminent sale of the building to developers, so we decided to take our future into our own hands. We secured a lease on a new building on NE 64th St and 9th Ave NE and we're working with an architect and a contractor to customize the space so that it feels familiar to our customers, while also modernizing the back-of-the-house space for our staff. You can look forward to old-favorites like the wooden booths and bar top, along with new perks like signature cocktails and outdoor bistro seating!

We hope you'll join us at our current spot before we move in a few months and then come again to inaugurate the new space!

     With love and gratitude,

          Cheryl, Adrian and the Sunlight Family
