No appointment is necessary; simply walk in.

Syracuse Repair Cafe logo.At Syracuse Repair Café, everything centers on making free repairs to toasters, lamps, clothes, bikes, toys, wobbly furniture, crockery and more. Anything that is broken is welcome and can more than likely be repaired. There will be various experts on hand including electrical, mechanical, sharpening, watch and clock repair, carpentry and seamstresses. The specialists in Repair Café almost always have the know-how. There is no charge or fee for repairs, although donations are appreciated and guests may be asked to pay for certain parts.

Extending the useful life of any item by having it repaired instead of purchasing a replacement not only helps with personal finances, it’s good for the environment as it keeps trash out of our local waste stream.
