The Council Café

The Council Café

The primary purpose of the Council Café is for seniors to have a place to socialize while enjoying nutritious meals and snacks at reasonable prices. A portion of the profit goes toward supporting Seniors’ Centre programs.

The Council Café is staffed by volunteers of The Kanata Seniors Council for the benefit of all area seniors, their friends, and families, not just for members of the Kanata Seniors’ Centre.
