Christian Cafe, found online at ChristianCafe.com, is an online dating website which says their goal is to help other Christian singles meet and communicate, whether they are right in the same town or even on other sides of the world.
How Does It Work?
The creators of this website emphasize that they are an independently owned website, so their members can be assured that this site is truly dedicated to helping Christians find and connect with people that share their enthusiasm in their faith.
When you create your own personal profile, you can choose to include Christian-relevant short answer questions, such as describing your Christian faith and favorite scripture passage. When you search for potential matches, you will be able to filter your results by specific church denomination, level of Christian faith, amount of church involvement, and more.
Once you have narrowed down your potential matches, you can begin interacting with them through the website’s Cafe email, instant messaging, and forums, so that you have a safe and private way to get to know your potential dates before meeting them in person.
But the creators of ChristianCafe.com says that this website is not only about finding dates; they also provide their members to “seek fellowship, support, advice and laughs” through group conversations in their forums.
Unlike almost all other online dating sites currently in operation, ChristianCafe.com actually publishes a clear pricing guide which can be used by the members of their website, but first they promise that all their customers will have access to a minimum of seven free days to use their website – without requiring a credit card number. This free trial is increased to ten days if the users create a profile that includes a picture.
At the end of the free trial, you will be asked what kind of membership you are interested in. Their shortest plan is two weeks, at $29.97 or $59.94 per month, while their longest plan is a full year’s worth of membership paid in advance, at $109.95 per year or $9.16 per month. They have a variety of subscriptions of different lengths and different prices, all of which will renew automatically until you choose to cancel your membership.
Generally speaking, it is very uncommon for dating websites to provide their customers with refunds; instead they often simply allow their customers to cancel their memberships whenever they choose and then continue having access to their service until the end of their original subscription period. This is something that new customers may want to take into consideration when signing up for a membership with Christian Cafe, as they provide no information regarding Refund or Cancelation Policies.

Christian websites and blogs seem to have evaluated this website fairly extensively, and their reviews are generally very positive. They are happy that this company really seems to operate in good faith toward helping Christian singles find other Christian singles with the same type and level of faith that they themselves embrace.
Unfortunately they also seem to think that this company overreaches toward trying to be not only a Christian dating site, but also a social network similar to Facebook, which results in website that offers too many features that don’t actually help people find a good potential mate.
But the biggest issue is still that their number of members appears to be too small when compared to the major dating websites that, though they are not limited to Christian members, still allow members to filter their search results by faith.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many different dating websites available which describe themselves as modern day, online matchmaking services, including MarryInAWeek.com, eLove.com, Three Day Rule, and other religious based online dating websites, including ChristianMingle.com, BlackChristianPeopleMeet.com, CatholicMatch, and many others.
