Edgar’s Bistro, operated by Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA)—the parent organization of Helms College—was established as a business enterprise and experiential learning experience in support of Helms College’s Macon Campus.
Located adjacent to Helms College, Edgar’s Bistro provides hands-on learning opportunities for students to work with executive chefs as well as experienced sous chefs and restaurant managers throughout their program. Each quarter students and staff work together to carefully choose selections with not only seasonal flair, but also ones that integrate the concept of farm-to-table initiatives. The Polly Long Denton School of Hospitality even has its own garden on where herbs are carefully cultivated and nurtured by students and staff.
Edgar’s Bistro also is proud to announce their collaboration with JoBelle Coffee. JoBelle Coffee opened in Vidalia, Georgia, in 1998. Since then, JoBell has moved to Macon and is committed to only the best coffees throughout Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina. Edgar’s Bistro now serves JoBelle exclusively in the restaurant and uses it as the basis for many of our delicious coffee-inspired desserts.
