Muesli Café in Porto
Muesli is a healthy breakfast, popular in central and Northern Europe but not much known in Portugal. We want to change that, and with your help, we will start by opening a café in the center of Porto to serve our delicious self-made muesli.
Porto is a great city! This is obvious to those who live there, and also to those who visit. Most importantly, Porto is going through a major change—there are more and more foreigners visiting, studying and even staying for starting a new life. There are lots of new cool bars and restaurants apperaing, and stores selling interesting stuff. Porto is opening up new cultures, new experiences and new habits. We think this is the perfect context for our Muesli Café.
Muesli café will be a breakfast place—we will open early in the morning and close after lunchtime, for late risers ;)
This will be a calm, cozy and warm place. We are planning to find nice second-hand furniture and turn the café into a comfortable "temporary living-room".
The focus will be on mueslis. We will prepare them with fresh seasonal fruit, our own self-flaked cereals, high quality dairy and non dairy products, honey, seeds, nuts and dried fruit. We'll make sure most of these ingredients will be produced in Portugal. There will be also other products made of the same ingredients: cakes, crumbles, fruit salads, shakes, smoothies, cookies and muesli bars. The most important is that everything will be self-made. We will also serve coffee, of course!
We will offer our muesli also for take-away. If you are in a hurry and don't have time to stay in the café but don't want to miss a muesli breakfast, you can just take it to your work/classes and eat it there. We will provide reusable glass jars instead of plastic packages as a contribution to the environment.
