Artshack Cafe, a non-profit organization whose mission is to make the neighborhood and the world a better place, takes eco-friendliness very seriously, serving all menu items on in-house-made ceramic dishes. In addition, a cafe’s official statement requests that customers “help reduce waste by bringing their own cups.” Looking for to-go coffee? Anticipate it to be served in a ceramic to-go cup.
Artshack Brooklyn is a community-based ceramics studio that provides free and subsidized programming for both adults and children.
In addition to not using single-use products, the Bed-Stuy cafe at 1129 Bedford Avenue by Monroe Street has an anti-racism library and a number of bunny-shaped chairs that make chef Silvia Barban’s menu items taste even better.
According to Brooklyn Magazine, chef Silvia Barban’s mother frequently prepared an exceptional olive oil cake, which is included on the menu alongside coffee shop staples such as croissants and brownie bars. There are also lunch staples such as sandwiches, salads, and egg dishes, as well as an exceptional soft serve option.
