Edgar and Joe's at Innovation Works

A Cafe with A Social Purpose

A social purpose enterprise of Goodwill Industries, Edgar and Joe’s Café is a gathering space for our Innovation Works co-tenant members and our neighbours in Downtown London!  When you buy a coffee, lunch or treats at Edgar and Joe's you are supporting opportunities for people to be employed and trained in the hospitality food  sector, an industry that has high labour needs and challenges. Supporting the Cafe helps Goodwill Industries fulfill its mission of changing lives through the power of work. Edgar and Joe's Cafe at Innovation Works contributes to the vitality and economic wellness of our community.
