Welcome to the Dryden Community Center Café!

The Dryden Community Center Café is a nonprofit community center, run by volunteers, with the goal of offering the Dryden community and surrounding areas a relaxed and welcoming place to gather for coffee, conversation, music and events. Come in and experience a community center where strangers become neighbors and neighbors become friends while making Dryden a better place to live.


The Dryden Community Center Cafe is undergoing a "re-branding," and is seeking community input. Please take a few moments to complete this SURVEY to share your thoughts and ideas. Completed surveys will be rewarded with a code that can be redeemed for a free coffee and cookie. The survey will be open until November 22 so don't delay!
Thanks in advance for your time and comments!

- Stephanie Mulinos, DC3 Volunteer
