article imageRestaurant leaves prices up to 'karma'

Albuquerque - A brand new cafe in Albuquerque is relying on karma instead of money to keep it in business. The menu doesn't have prices and you can eat for free, if you really wanted to.
David Wade McCullough, owner of Karma Cafe, was inspired when he visited a restaurant while travelling in Australia. That inspiration led him to serving food with no set prices on the menu.

This week's menu has some new additions! Smoked pastrami in the Breakfast Hash donated by Chef David Gaspar de Alba, Italian Penne Pasta, and Wade's Masala Chicken Curry! Lots of new variety to try ✌️️

The idea 'Food Karma' was started three years ago, but it was only a popup stand. This past Tuesday, Karma Cafe opened its doors. McCullough said it was his customers and employees who have gotten him this far.
McCullough said for the most part, a lot of customers are willing to pay fair prices. He said he's found that most people are honest, fair and they want to contribute something. He said people who are homeless or struggling still want to contribute or pay what they can.
Making money is only McCullough's secondary purpose. He said his main purpose is providing people with a safe place to go to and have something to eat. He added that running the restaurant has confirmed his believe that people want to do good things.
The popup stand started off at the city's Grower's Market in Robinson Park. Karma Cafe will still be farmer's markets around town, but mostly during the summer. San Pedro and Constitution in the city's Mile Hi District is where the actual cafe is located.
