Missing your “I Voted” sticker?
We have you covered with our specially stamped ‘EYE (I) voted’ cups!
Come get your cup on Election Day ( 11/3) when we will be giving away one free 8oz brewed coffee per customer!
We have been working closely with the OC Health Dept and staff to assure the safety of staff and customers.
We are cleared to re-open after having deep-cleaned the Cafe and tested all staff. All this, paired with our standard prevention/sanitization policies, ensure a safe environment
for everyone in our community to visit!
We will be working with adjusted hours as we build back up:
Mon 10/26 – Thur 10/29 8am – 2pm
Fri 10/30 7am – 6pm
Sat 10/31 – Sun 11/1 8am – 6pm
We would like to thank our community for being so supportive as we worked through this situation in a way that was safest for all.
We also appreciate the OC Health Dept for guiding this process, and all of our wonderful neighbor businesses for being there for us!
Open Eye Cafe, as a business that is fully interconnected in our communities, is committed to doing our part to dismantle systemic racism and address the power dynamics that are unfair to Black people and all disenfranchised communities.
While words can be a supportive first step, they can also be a hollow gesture, especially on social media, if there is no follow through. So we have taken the time first to listen. We are currently working with our staff to solidify thoughts, and potential actions so that we can create a strategic plan for change, that we can implement going forward long term.
These steps will include continued support and implementation of our company-wide diversity and inclusion training, with speakers that can be a platform to amplify the voices of Black professionals in order to have overdue conversations that will be instrumental in moving us forward as a company, an industry, & ultimately as a people united.
Also included in these first steps as we continue to build our donation platform for the future, we will be diversifying our donor list to both raise awareness for these organizations, as well as supporting financially to make actionable results possible.
To start, proceeds from all retail coffee bags from Monday, June 22 through Sunday July 5th, will be donated to the NC Community Bail Fund of Durham on behalf of all Cafe employees, who determined this to be a good local place to start supporting.
NC Community Bail Funds is an organization that lobbies for bail reform and supports individuals through the criminal justice system returning clients to their homes, jobs, and communities, in turn giving them a more equitable case procedure.
