Let's face it. In 2017 our world is not exactly where it should be. There are still many countries where girls don't have the right to education or decent health care.

Maison d'etre is a neighbourhood independent coffee house serving delicious and sustainable breakfasts.
Think carefully selected local, seasonal and organic ingredients and you’ll get a picture of this place. Then add to this picture that all all cakes and treats are homemade by the owner Kim and staff. That to me shows some real passion for serving your guests only the best produce and with great respect.
