Our Story

Based out of the newly renovated historic Ferdinand building, a former furniture company, Dudley Cafe is part of Bruce C. Bolling Building in Dudley Square. Our vision is to create a community that fosters arts, music, and youth empowerment. We believe in investing back and supporting a thriving ecosystem in Roxbury. In addition to supplying our ingredients from local businesses, we are also passionate supporters of youth empowerment. Since opening, we have partnered with Madison Park Technical High School and continue to hire their students for baking and front of the house positions. It is our intention to create opportunities for dedicated students, as well as provide a space for organizations that aim to uplift the residents of Roxbury, MA.
