Kula Cafe

The word “kula” comes from Sanskrit, meaning intentional community or community of the heart.  Here at Kula Cafe, we strive to be at the heart of our community by offering a place where our neighbors can enjoy a delicious meal at a reasonable price in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

In addition to being a community gathering place, we offer paid job training to young adults from the local neighborhood.  With such a booming restaurant industry in Asbury Park, we want to prepare local community members to compete for the many jobs available right here in town!

All of the young adults working in the cafe are part of our job training program.  They have committed to spend a minimum of 16 weeks learning all of the job roles in our cafe.  During their training, they will learn to serve, cook, prep, clean and everything else in between!

All revenue generated by the Kula Cafe goes directly towards supporting our work training program.  When you give your business to Kula you help support our youth, our cause and our community!
