About Wayside Chapel
Wayside Chapel has provided unconditional love, care and support for people on and around the streets of Sydney since 1964. Today, under the banner of ‘Love over Hate’, Wayside runs two community services centres, an Aboriginal Program, a mental health program and outreach service, two community cafés and two op shops. Our mission is creating community with no ‘us and them,’ breaking down the barriers of judgement and providing a safe place where people from all walks of life are welcome. All our programs are designed to ensure that the most marginalised members of our community have access to essential health, welfare, social and recreational services, as well as a judgment-free place where people are welcome to just ‘be’.
About the Wayside Café
The Wayside cafés are a welcoming, thriving and lively point of entry to Wayside and have been serving meals and offering a safe place for people to either spend time, interact or just ‘be’ since 1966. The Wayside Cafe offers a broad range of meals that reflect the diverse personalities of our cooks and the varied palates of our customers. All our cooks make meals that may express their own culinary points of view, but consistently our food is delicious, wholesome and fun. Wayside’s vision of ‘Love over Hate’ is embodied in our food, lovingly prepared and served with engaged and friendly faces. Our mission to Create Community with No ‘Us and Them’, is active in every act of service.
Both Wayside Cafés are central to The Wayside Chapel’s community-building objectives and its delivery of services which meet the needs of people in the eastern Sydney area. All people are welcome to patronise Wayside’s cafés and enjoy low-cost and nutritious food.
