Process Step

Engage your community

Pop-up cafes are an easy and fun way to engage with your local community and a great way to get in touch with the people living and using the neighbourhood. The pop-up cafe tool manual walks you through all the steps it takes for you to organise your event. You can realise a pop-up cafe with two chairs and a bit of coffee or create a theme pop-up cafe street party. Read the manual and get started to meet and enjoy time with your local community.
