Cafe 108 was created to support the nonprofit Auburn Public Theater (APT) and its mission to bring affordable access to the arts and arts education for everyone. One hundred percent of the cafe’s profits go to APT. At the same time, Cafe 108 nourishes the community with healthy, predominantly locally sourced food. And all our packaging products are eco-friendly. We invite you to join us in this collaboration by enjoying our food and supporting the arts. Your patronage helps insure a future for artists and the community. It’s a menu with a mission.

Auburn Public Theater makes the world a safer place for democracy by providing an inclusive space for diverse voices and artistic expression. There is something for everyone at Auburn Public Theater; a place where all are welcome.
As a public space, we provide a vessel that our community partners fill with their own events, classes, film screenings & more. We partner with 40+ organizations & schools every year. All of our spaces are also available for rent for birthday parties, weddings, family celebrations, fitness classes & more.
APT partners with Auburn Public Schools & community centers to provide free performing arts classes. We also have affordable classes & summer camps right here at the theater in film, theater & music. Tuition assistance and full scholarships available.
We support individual artists & community organizations throughout the Finger Lakes by administering the NY State Council on the Arts Statewide Community Regrant program, which funds community arts, arts education, and individual artist projects.
You Are The Public For Which We Stand. Thank you for supporting your public theater in the heart of downtown Auburn, New York. Donations, sponsorships & foundation support make all of our events, educational programs & community partnerships possible.
