About The Cafè

Havenly is a community cafe and homestyle kitchen located at 25 Temple Street. We strive to bring a taste of the Arab world to New Haven while uplifting the women that make our mission possible. Our menu selection is traditional Arab cuisine with a twist, inspired by the lived experience and journeys of head chef and co-founder Nieda.

Community Cafè

Havenly is a place where coalitions are built across race, language, culture, and history of migration. We seek to bring together groups and individuals who have shared experiences and common goals in a vibrant space dedicated to members of the New Haven community.

Homestyle Kitchen

Havenly offers a menu inspired by traditional Arab recipes - each dish handmade with love by our incredible staff. Our savory selection includes items like our flavorful spiced biryani, fresh hummus, tender grape leaves, and the customer favorite falafel wrap. Treats range from our signature baklava to our mouthwatering date energy bites - all available for shipping within the US! Havenly also has drinks for every occasion, whether it’s a cup of Turkish coffee or freshly-squeezed orange juice in the morning, or a chilled hibiscus iced tea in the evening.

Havenly Treats opens its doors on Temple Street, expanding its menu selection to include delicious savory items. We cooked and donated over 20,000 meals for New Haven’s food insecure community during the coronavirus pandemic.
