D.C. born and bred, the trio behind The Village Cafe have cultivated their roots, hearts, and taste buds in the community. The Village Cafe is all about partnership, thinking about ways to support local entrepreneurs and consistently sourcing local ingredients. Together, the owners, Kevon King, Mahammad Mangum and Ryan Williams host panels (including an alumni panel of graduates from their high school) and career skills workshops.

We absolutely love their mission statement – give it a read for yourself: “We believe that entrepreneurship, access to quality food, and strong community spaces are critical ingredients to a healthy, prosperous place.”
