What brings you to Death Cafe?
Community engagement on death and dying in friendly, comfortable surroundings will help us better provide for North Texan’s End of Life needs.
What would you like your legacy to be?
We’d like our kids to tell people their parents were kind.
Thoughts for sharing:
Simplicity and minimalism are having a moment in the U.S. right now, and that movement’s principles fit well with how death can be better viewed/handled in our culture.

free, but small donation to offset cost of cake wouldn’t be turned down
Tea! Cake! Death!
Let‘s ditch social norms and meet strangers in public to talk about mortality. These talks are lively and largely positive. Cake will be provided.
Kelly gave a great first cafe for our surprisingly under-served piece of the world. Seven of us had a lovely talk about death’s monetary cost, the reality of invisible grief, cultural differences, etc. My eight year old made us all wonder if death even exists in our (possibly false) reality. Portraits were drawn. It was a good time.
The cake didn’t say “death”, which was in no way the fault of our kind organizer. Some grocery stores just aren’t death positive enough yet.
Looking forward to holding our own event in the future.
