The Emporium is delighted to partner with Wellspring Community as they have launched their Best Buddies Bakery & Cafe on our premises! In the Emporium  you can find their various pottery and woodworking items as well as their delectable bakery treats.

Wellspring Community/Best Buddies Bakery & Cafe


Best Buddies Bakery & Café is not your typical restaurant. This café run by Wellspring Community. Wellspring exists to provide a work, enrichment and educational community where adults with special needs are empowered to live full, productive and satisfying lives in a God-centered and nurturing environment.


In this café, you will find trained staff and volunteers working alongside adults with special needs, called STARS (specially talented adults raising standards), to give them the support they need to be successful in hosting, serving and bussing. This café allows adults with developmental disabilities to learn, grow and shine in an environment that moves at their pace.


In addition to Wellspring’s café, STARS can be found working in several other locations around town. A commercial kitchen at Castle Oaks Covenant Church is used to bake all sorts of tasty desserts, packaging products for local grocers and so much more! These products are not only available at The Emporium, but can also be found at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, Sky Ridge Hospital, Duke’s Steakhouse, Rockyard American Grill and Tony’s Market. Across the street from The Emporium sits the Artbeat Studio where STARS learn woodworking, ceramics, and assembly work while creating many exciting products available for purchase at The Emporium. These include ceramic crosses, Colorado state flags, and other decorative items.


When you purchase a Best Buddies Bakery product or piece of Wellspring art, you not only receive a quality product, you empower a life! Come join us for lunch and enjoy delicious, homemade quiche, sandwiches, salads, pizza, and baked goods and shop the goodies made in the Artbeat Studio!
