Saints & Sinners Café

Finding God on the Side Streets
Stories from the Side Streets of Life

There’s a wonderful little – well, not so little actually – café at at 14th and V Streets, NW in Washington, DC. It is called Busboys and Poets. Branches of the café can now be found throughout DC and Maryland. Even though it has expanded it has not lost its purpose.

Busboys and Poets is a community where racial and cultural connections are consciously uplifted... a place to take a deliberate pause and feed your mind, body and soul... a space for art, culture and politics to intentionally collide... we believe that by creating such a space we can inspire social change and begin to transform our community and the world.

Saints & Sinners is a nod to both Busboys and Poets and to their raison d'être. Saints & Poets seeks to inspire the same. How better to find the Side Street God than through feeding one’s mind, body and soul?
