COMMONS Cafe, a non-profit eatery located off South Avenue, opened in December and serves those in the area a variety of dishes from morning to evening. One of the best parts about this new dining spot is that all profits are donated to charity.

The 1,250-square-foot cafe also has an outdoor seating area for 60 and a performance stage. It was opened by property owner and local philanthropist Richard Nicotra.
