What we're about


What do you do with a toaster that doesn't toast? A chair with a loose leg? A shirt with a torn sleeve? Send it to a landfill? No way! Bring it to Repair Cafe!

Repair Cafe/Pasadena links local handy people to folks in need of repairs of all kinds: clothing, appliances, electronics, bikes, jewelry, furniture ...and more, all in the spirit of stewardship of our planet's resources and zero waste. The Repair Cafe is inspired by the philosophy of a Sharing Economy. We share our time, skills and talents to build a more vibrant local community, one repair at a time."
