The Shoe Bird Café, named after Eudora Welty's only children's book, The Shoe Bird, is Belhaven University's coffee shop.

It is centrally located on the first floor of the McCravey-Triplett Student Center. The Café is open to students, faculty, staff, on-campus visitors, and members of the public, especially those from the Belhaven neighborhood.

The Shoe Bird Café serves drip coffee at the lowest prices in the area, with a cup starting at $1, and seeks to serve the campus by competitively pricing all of its products. Additionally, the Café prepares espresso drinks such as lattes and cappuccinos, specialty teas, and iced drinks. The Café sells various menu items such as crepes, muffins, paninis, and other snacks.

All of the Shoe Bird’s hot coffee drinks are made from freshly roasted beans. They welcome Belhaven neighbors to their “Early Bird” breakfast special every Saturday from 8am-Noon.
