Cart Café

The Cart Café is a quality mobile coffee cart selling organic, Fairtrade and locally roasted coffee from Bun Coffee, Byron Bay. We also sell delicious handmade chocolate Brownies. On request we can sell fresh fruit frappes and milkshakes.

The Cart Café is a social enterprise, which provides paid traineeships and employment to disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the community. We received start-up funding from the commonwealth government for this enterprise however this has unfortunately ceased. We operate on a daily basis at Lismore to provide formal training. To ensure our viability as a social enterprise we rely on events from the Community to raise the funds to continue this value enterprise so we can continue to make a real impact on the lives of disadvantaged people.

The Cart Café is truly ‘Coffee with a Conscience’. We offer you more than just coffee. By booking the coffee cart you can help the community in so many ways;

  • To raise funds – in line with our goal as an organization we pay our baristas and trainees a wage. We aim to raise funding through sales that will help to maintain this program throughout the coming year. Building funds for this project will also allow us to service smaller community driven events in the Northern Rivers NSW that may otherwise result in financial losses for the program. For example: Friends of the Koalas community events, National Tree Day, Lismore Friendship Festival, & Lismore Recycle Markets.
  • To provide valuable experience – operation of the Cart Café at events and festivals will provide valuable experience to our trainees, catering for a large volume of customers in a vibrant and diverse environment will develop our trainees’ skills and provide an impressive experience for their future resumes. Exposure to the ethos and values of events and festival will positively affect our staff opening them to the possibilities in the Events, Hospitality and Tourism industries.
  • To Raise Awareness – Events and festivals is a wonderful platform through which we can spread the word of our program to a wide spectrum of the public.
  • To support your local businesses – by choosing to source our ingredients, stock and infrastructure from businesses within our local shires.
