Tucked in the bright and airy basement of Saint Mary of Mercy Church in Pittsburgh, Brother Andre's Cafe serves a delicious cup of coffee and scrumptious baked goods.
However, it also dishes up an inspirational story that's sure to provide encouragement for anyone who's ever faced what seemed like an insurmountable challenge.
Started by Patrick Fitzgerald and his parents, Mike and Terry, the coffee shop was born of Patrick's difficulty finding a job. Despite earning a degree at a community college, Patrick had little success finding a job due to his living with autism.
Instead of letting it get him down, he and his parents started Brother Andre's Cafe, named for Saint André Bessette, in partnership with Father Chris Donley of Move a Mountain Missions.
The cafe hires indviduals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, also known as IDD. While the warm and inviting cafe opened online in November of 2020, it has since started...
...welcoming guests to its brick and mortar shop for a piping hot cup of coffee and a delicous baked goody, like cookies.
Sip a cup of Brother Andre's medium dark roast coffee as you indulge in one of Patrick's famous snickerdoodles. Chocolate chip cookies and gluten-free peanut butter cookies are also popular choices.
If you can't make it to the coffee shop, you can still enjoy its decadent coffee with a coffee or a cookie subscription. Choose the coffee and/or cookies you want, and decide how often... want them shipped to you. That's it. Brother Andre's Cafe makes it easy to cancel whenever you want. If you need to pause your deliveries, you can do that, too.
