Bistro 163 is one of 50 such Community Cafés that have sprung up throughout the US. This model addresses hunger issues in a dignified manner while providing an avenue for building relationships.
We chose the name "Bistro 163" as it communicates our intention to serve fresh food prepared from scratch, using locally sourced ingredients, a "farm to table" approach. The café's location, on Perry Street in Port Clinton, is part of State Route 163 stretching from Oak Harbor to Marblehead, our target service area of Ottawa County.
We are a "Pay-It-Forward" restaurant
•Everyone is welcome to eat a meal
•Patrons are encouraged to pay more than the suggested price to help others enjoy a meal
•If unable to pay, give your time in service as payment
Bistro 163 will be a non-profit, pay-what-you-can afford restaurant. Everyone who enters Bistro 163 will be welcome to eat a meal. Those who are able will be encouraged to pay-it-forward to defray the cost of someone else’s meal. If someone is unable to pay, they may volunteer one hour in exchange for their meal.
We desire to build relationships, to really get to know each other. Our mission is to increase food security and offer all neighbors a place to eat and come together as one community.
Bistro 163 is hoping to open to the Ottawa County community beginning on Monday, June 6th. Executive Chef Stacy Maple is crafting an innovative menu of fresh, locally sourced foods, including salads, soups, flatbreads, and sandwiches. Initially, lunch will be served on weekdays from 10:30 to 2:00, and Saturday brunch from 7:30 to 2:00. Bistro 163 will be closed on Sundays.
