Café de Ceuvel is on a quest for truly good food, not only affordable, delicious and healthy, but also good for the planet as a whole.

We cooperate with local and urban farmers, we grow our own herbs and lettuce in an aquaponics system on the roof and are always looking for the most innovative examples for circular food.

Café de Ceuvel is part of De Ceuvel, a former shipyard transformed into a sustainable workplace, by lifting old houseboats onto the land, and equipping them with sustainable technologies such as composting toilets, heat exchangers, solar panels and helophyte filters. The soil of the old shipyard is toxic and in between the houseboats a special mix of plants has been planted to clean the terrain from it’s pollutants.
