Located inside the Temple Terrace Family Recreation Complex, the Café is a fully functioning non-profit business offering beverages and snacks to patrons and the public. It is staffed by Focus Academy Transition Program students, who learn valuable skills such as inventory, customer service, using a cash register, and more.
Focus Café typically operates Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the school year. Summer hours are currently 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Focus Academy Transition Program students are assigned to the Café during their last year of the program for their Community Based Training. During the summer, Focus Forward participants may work the Café.
The Café offers typical coffee shop fare such as hot coffee, tea, bottled beverages, and pre-packaged snacks and treats. Other seasonal snack options may include cheese sticks, churros, ice cream treats, and smoothies. A seating area including tables and stools is located nearby for those patrons who wish to enjoy their purchases inside. Accepted forms of payment are cash and credit. A "Coffee Lover" frequent purchase card is available at the counter.
