Boentje Café is a crazy project looking to launch the first zero-waste Brussels coffee house. From the heart and with local products: good for you and good for the planet. Delicious unadorned, with no unnecessary waste. We’re going to put local taste in your jar, and we think you’re going to love it!

- HOW WILL BOENTJE CAFÉ WORK? -

At Boentje Café, we are doubling down on eliminating or upcycling waste.

From the furniture to the decoration, not forgetting the lighting and the tableware, we’ll welcome you in a cosy atmosphere made from recycled materials.

Much more than the décor, here we are rethinking the traditional coffee house model and the waste it puts out. Disposable is replaced by sustainable: stainless steel straws, reusable containers and fabric napkins are our VIPs. At Boentje Café, you bring your container back and pay only for the contents.

- AND WHAT CAN YOU EAT THERE? -

Because eating local produce has a global impact, our cuisine will also be in line with the zero waste philosophy. Using local products allows us to get rid of packaging that sticks to the skin of food transported from afar, as well as its carbon footprint. In short, circuits that are short with no short-circuits!

With these local products, Boentje Café is reinventing classic Belgian recipes; whether they were born Belgian or were Belgified by us. We set ourselves the challenge to show you that it is not just mangoes, avocados or pineapples that dominate and that miracles can be done with beetroot, pears, Swiss chard, strawberries and a few carrots.

- HOW CAN I CONTINUE MY ZERO WASTE GOAL AT HOME? -

And if you also want to reduce your waste at home, we can tell you all the secrets of zero waste in Boentje cooking so you can apply them in your life too. So come on over to one of our workshops! You will learn a ton of tips to simplify your life without making a mountain out of a molehill.

 

- AND WHERE DOES ALL THIS TAKE PLACE? -

In the centre of Schaerbeek, opposite the town hall.

 

Why this crowdfunding?

 

We need this sum of €7,500 so that we can:

  • get a competition level super waffle iron to delight you with our savoury Brussels waffles
  • create a counter where we can welcome you the way we should, install our beautiful coffee machine and display our cakes on a chilled shelf
  • create a luxuriant vegetable garden so you can enjoy the smell of fresh basil direct from the garden
