Chez Genèse


We are a small, French inspired café located at 616 South Elm Street in downtown Greensboro, NC.

We offer an integrated hiring model, seeking to provide equal employment for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is our mission to provide community & connection across the table.

We believe good food brings people together!

We are a full service, first come-first served restaurant. We do not accept reservations.

  • Weekdays, breakfast is served from 8-11am and lunch from 11-2pm.
  • Weekends, we serve brunch only from 8-2pm.
  • Due to our capacity & operating hours, our wait list may be cut off prior to closing on busy days in order for our kitchen to accommodate our tables & orders!

Take-out orders are not available when our restaurant is on a wait. Take-out orders are taken by phone or walk-in & typically available Monday-Friday and weekends before 9am.

Thank you in advance for being kind to us!
