Downtown Roanoke restaurant to establish a new payment method

Roanoke, Virginia – One Downtown Roanoke restaurant will establish a new payment method that may be unfamiliar to most of you.
On Jefferson Street, Ursula’s Café will operate on a “pay what you can” model, meaning there will be defined prices, but you will be able to choose how much you want to spend for your meal.
The objective is to help community members to eat fresh, delicious food. However, they need your help. The restaurant is a non-profit organization that accepts donations.
“It encourages the members of the community to take care of each other. So you can help feed people just by coming to eat,” Ursula’s Cafe co-owner, Ami Trowell said.
The owners are still waiting for some construction to be completed before announcing an opening date, but they expect to be able to do so shortly.
