One of Naperville’s best-kept secrets, Cornerstone Café is a friendly neighborhood meeting place located inside Good Shepherd Church open on Sunday mornings.

We are a cafe ministry that offers…

  • Food and Beverages – Enjoy hand-crafted coffee beverages, smoothies, and other drinks, soups, salads, sandwiches, baked goods, and snack items. Gluten-free and dairy-free options are available.
  • Free high-speed WiFi.
  • Informal Meeting Space – There’s plenty of space to have casual meetings or to enjoy time with friends and family.
  • Fairtrade Coffee – Cornerstone Café serves coffee produced by people in need from other countries, including Honduras and Guatemala. It is sold for a fair price, ensuring a decent living wage for the growers in these developing countries. We are proud to brew Arbor Vitae coffee, roasted locally by a family who has been in business in Naperville since 1994.

At Cornerstone Cafe, we give back! Through the generosity of our customers and volunteer baristas, we regularly donate to local and global charities. Every purchase helps those in need! Some of the causes we support include Feed My Starving Children, Hesed House, Rebuilding Together Aurora, Cheryl’s Children’s Home in Kenya, Lutheran World Relief, World Gospel Outreach, and Hearts in Motion.

Stop by before or after worship! View our Cafe Menu items online.
