there are three components to the blind cafe experience

A Social Wine & Food Pairing In The Dark

What's on the menu? Community...a three course sensory tasting wine & food pairing experience, dark chocolate, good friends, inspiring stories, live music and meaningful conversation all in the dark. We hire a local professional Chef in to design an outstanding sensory tasting experience, encouraging them to connect with local farms, locals business’s and build relationships in the community. We source, as much as possible, the food we serve from local farms and business. 

Menu To Be Announced


A Discussion In The Dark

In our award winning community awareness discussion, you will participate in a group discussion Q & A,  between the audience ( you ) and our amazing warm heart felt legally blind keynote speakers & ambassadors. They will share their personal stories with you and you will have the chance to learn,  ask questions, and discuss blindness in the dark with the entire room all paying attention.

 

There is something about engaging in organic conversation in a room full of strangers who can’t see each that instills a sense of community along the group. At the end, a candle is lit and it feels as if your waking up from a collective dream, that you somehow shared with everyone around you.
