about us

    FreeTown Café was born in a month with the mission to do more than serve great food. Brother Kwame Williams along with his sisters Kanika and Nataki Williams designed the café to nourish the growing Newark community, satisfying the body, mind and spirit.

    Honoring the Jamaican town, Accompong, where the Maroons defeated the English and gained freedom from slavery, the café’s name represents tenacity, courage, and ingenuity; necessities for independent and entrepreneurial success.
