Purple Porch Co-op is a community-owned and run cafe, grocery store and farmers market serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in downtown South Bend. On offer from Purple Porch’s Max Café is a menu which hosts a number of vegan options in every section, whilst also serving meat. There are salads, hot foods and soups, wraps and sandwiches as well as baked goods and sweet treats. For example you could feast on the Quinoa Powerhouse Salad or on Wednesday’s try the vegan and gluten-free Falafel hot dish, or you could warm yourself with the Tropical Coconut Curry or Summer Minestrone soup.
Purple Porch Co-op specializes in locally-grown and organic foods; the produce in the café is made from scratch using the high-quality ingredients available on the shelves of the store.
Purple Porch also offers catering.
Check online for any daily specials; Saturday’s café menu is based on the chef’s choice of local and seasonal offerings.
