Why Do You Do It?
Our mission is to provide our customers with a nutritious and convenient dining experience. From our meal selections to our snack options, our ingredients are selected with care. Our customers are family when they walk through the door; and we serve them the same quality product we would feed our loved ones at home.
What Do You Do?
Café 38˚ is a full-service café offering breakfast and lunch options complete with freshly made grab-and-go items, smoothies, specialty coffee and espresso drinks. Our self-serve salad bar, daily hot lunch specials and homemade soups have something for everyone.
We also provide a vast array of catering services to the Twin Cities area via our parent company, Twin Cities Catering.
What’s Your Story?
We are a family owned and operated business. Café 38˚ is our second home and we treat it as such. Not a single detail is overlooked. Not a single inquiry goes unanswered. Every decision we make is crafted with our customers in mind. There are no days off for us and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Top 5 traits of a successful leader:
A leader must be consistent, reliable and allow for open communication. I believe the most important trait of a true leader is a leader that encourages and cultivates more leaders.
If you could go back in your career, what would you change?
Honestly, it has been a 17 year, ever-evolving journey. Each day has been essential to us becoming the Twin Cities Catering company that we are today. We wouldn’t change a single thing.
If you didn’t work in the food industry, what other career path would you have liked to explore and why?
Before immigrating from Russia to America in 1994, I was in the medical field. I have always been fascinated by science and computers and would have loved to explore those areas further. Ultimately, I am happiest whenever I am helping others. Twin Cities Catering satisfies this need by giving me the opportunity to work closely with our clients to make their event dreams come true while providing healthy, top-quality food.
