Cauldron Collective and Turnsol Books & Coffee have teamed up to bring something new to the KC Metro: a worker-owned bookstore cafe.
The new spot will be located at 1664 Broadway Blvd., KCMO, next door to Stray Cat Films.
About the two businesses
Cauldron Collective is a worker-owned pop-up food concept founded in 2021. It started when a group of service workers decided to redesign the restaurant model.
Turnsol Books & Coffee began as an independent publisher. Former employees of a local book + record shop influenced the publisher to become a bookstore centering on good books and building community.
What to expect
Here’s what you can expect at the new bookstore cafe:
- An eclectic selection of books
- Coffee and vegan food
- Art nights
