Fellowship Café at Sacred Heart Parish in Royersford provides parishioners with the opportunity to spend some time hanging out with each other after Mass while enjoying a good cup of coffee, writes Gina Christian for Catholic Philly.

The café is located in the church basement and is only open on Sundays from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“We offer egg sandwiches, bacon, sausages, even pancake specials and chipped beef,” said parish staffer Christine Klag, who manages the café.

The menu also includes yogurt parfaits and avocado toast, and the whole selection is “cheaper and better than Wawa, as one Sunday regular says,” said Klag.

It really is hard to beat prices that range from $1 to $3, or $6 to $8 for specials made by local restauranteur Annamarie Chestnut of Annamarie’s Place.

The décor is a blend of Starbucks and spirituality with Scripture verse murals and religious art adorning the walls next to the flat-screen television.

The café is staffed by volunteers and is also self-sustaining.

“We try to make enough to hold our own,” said Klag.
