An awareness of our
environment, how it nourishes us,
and what we must do to have this
Every thing we do is local with our lowest standard of procurement being organic. We constantly strive to be sustainable and support other like minded people in the food business. But it’s more than just food choice and ingredients. Cafe Belong is about creating a connection between the natural food from our land, the farmers that nourish and harvest it, and ultimately, the people who enjoy it.
It’s this ‘circle of sustainability’ that will surround your visit – a sense of ‘belonging’ to the environment and to the beautiful Evergreen Brick Works venue. It’s this dedication to provenance, preparation and presentation that stand as a testament to value.
