Fresh & From the Heart

Grilled Salmon

We are a full service restaurant and catering business located in historic Rawlin’s Cross, St. John’s, NL. We focus on creating nutritious meals that are full of flavor.

But Hungry Heart Café is much more than a great place for food. We help vulnerable adults access careers in the food service industry so that they can achieve independence and realize their dreams. Every penny of revenue generated by the Hungry Heart Café goes right back into the operation to fund employment training.

For employment opportunities check out the Stella’s Circle website.
