New poke bowl coffee arrives in New Jersey

A new concept of quick and relaxed Asian fusion called Poke Café is coming to New Jersey.

The Poke Café will occupy a 2,400 square foot building on the Flemington Marketplace, located at 325 Route 202 in Flemington, according to a press release.

An opening date has not yet been announced.

The restaurant will serve a variety of customizable poke bowls – which consist of raw diced fish mixed with rice, vegetables and sauces – as well as bubble and fruit teas.

“More and more, consumers are looking for freshly prepared, nutritious, tasty and high quality meals,” said Vanessa Fernandez-Kelty, a rental representative for the building. “Poke Café adds another fast and casual dining option to the Flemington Marketplace, and we are excited to bring this concept to the community.”

Flemington Marketplace includes major retailers Burlington, Kohl’s, Michaels and Aldi, which anchor the mall. Chili’s, Panera Bread, Cold Stone Creamery, and Verizon Wireless are also part of the mall.

‘Cereal Killer’, ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ among coffee and horror-themed food specialties at this Flint cafe

FLINT, MI – It’s not everyday that you can walk into a cafe and hear people asking a barista for a “grain killer.”

No, not a serial killer. Cereal, like pouring it in a bowl over milk for breakfast.

Although, in this case, it’s served as a latte at Café Rhema, one of the many horror-themed specials in downtown Flint.

How is it made? Café Rhema co-owner Tiff Sommers provides the answer.

“We take grain milk by soaking marshmallows of any grain in the milk for 24 hours, filter it and end up with the sugars in the milk,” she said. “It’s steamed with espresso and served hot or cold depending on the customer’s preference. It’s sweet and delicious.

“My love for horror movies kicks in with these specials. We wanted to provide unique experiences for our customers and our community, ”Sommers said. “It’s October, and it’s time to dive into the horror movies and enjoy the spooky nature of the month. I didn’t see anything else like this, so we wanted to bring it here.

Sommers has always been a horror fan herself, remembering the first time she was scared of something “supernatural”.

Excited to see Michael Jackson’s last clip on MTV in December 1983, Sommers, then 3, sat on the floor of her parents’ living room in Hartville, Ohio, watching the TV for the best view.

The clip was for “Thriller” and (spoiler alert) by the time the werewolf appeared onscreen, Sommers was terrified.

“I started to cry and I ran and I hid behind the sofa because I was so scared,” she said. “So I still remember that and wanted to name a drink as well. “

The four specialties paying homage to different horror classics include the following drinks:

The thriller – An iced Matcha supplemented with a powder of Japanese green tea mixed with a touch of red velvet, which gives the appearance of blood

Rosemary baby – A café au lait with homemade espresso and artisan rosemary syrup and local honey from the Flint Farmers’ Market and steamed milk of the customer’s choice, served hot or cold

Grain killer – A one-size-fits-all latte, served hot with espresso and steamed cereal milk

The Pennywise – It’s the coffee version of a Monte Cristo. Instead of bread, the meal is served with waffles and completed with ham, Swiss, homemade jam and sprinkled with a little powdered sugar.

Drink prices are around $ 5 and $ 6, and the sandwich is $ 10.

Other seasonal dishes the cafe serves include pumpkin spice latte, cider, and chai cider which they ostensibly refer to as “chai-der.”

Cafe Rhema also has a brand new espresso machine, fully installing the La Marzocco Gb5 S last week.

The old machine has been in use since 2005, dating back to when the business was owned by different owners and was called the Brown Sugar Cafe.

“It’s made a lot of great coffee for Flint, but it’s always been in my heart to keep moving forward, to continue to provide the best coffee for this city,” Sommers said.

The purchase of the machine was made possible after receiving the Moving Flint Forward Small Business Grant, offered as part of a program that is a collaborative effort between General Motors and Flint & Genesee Group.

The grant program, established with financial support from GM, aims to expand revitalization efforts in city neighborhoods by supporting local businesses.

“We’ve wanted a new machine for a very long time,” Sommers said. “We were very lucky to get this grant and this machine. … It’s the best thing ever. The machine adapts perfectly to our aesthetic and makes a very good cup of coffee. The technology is better. The equipment is better.

“He gets a better shot of espresso. Steamed milk is just smooth and smooth. It will make the whole experience even better.

Café Rhema, located at 432 S. Saginaw Street in downtown Flint, is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday .

These are the best restaurants and cafes in Scotland’s art galleries, from Hospitalfield to Jupiter Artland

Either way, here’s our roundup of the best Scottish art gallery cafes, so you can punctuate your dose of culture with lunch, breakfast or dinner. And nowadays, they offer more than just scones.

We’re very excited about this gallery’s new cake cart, which is on the lower level of the building, and serves coffee and cakes to boost your blood sugar before you tackle the exhibits. In addition to breakfast, brunch and lunch, the restaurant, overlooking the River Tay, offers Dundee meets Japan afternoon tea. This includes a Desperate Dan-style cow pie, mini Dundee cake, and flavors of miso and katsu among other flavors. Just outside you’ll also find the Heather Street Food Van, serving donuts, coffee, and bagels.

The newsletter i cut through the noise

Edinburgh is full of café-galleries, from Paolozzi’s Kitchen at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art to Cafe Portrait at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, where you can enjoy an excellent cheese scone, while browsing the Alison Watt exhibition (until January 9, 2022). However, we have a soft spot for this place, at the tapestry workshop and art place, Dovecot. It was recently taken over by the restaurant in Pinkerton, and they have lunch specials including Bloody Mary soup with lamb pie. “The best-selling right now are our savory pies and mon-scots with Isle of Mull cheddar and honey-roasted ham,” explains Floraidh Anne-Law, co-owner of the café. “On the sweet side, our fresh sponge cake with seasonal jam is a winner.”

Tatha

This place of Arbroath is being restored to its site – once a 13th century hospital and monastery. It is also the location of an Arts & Crafts era home, which inspired Walter Scott’s novel, The Antiquary. Once you’ve browsed through the collections from the 19th and 20th centuries, visit the magnificent café under glass and try their menu of local produce, which showcases vegetables grown in their walled garden. There’s coffee from the local roast, Sacred Grounds, and a menu that includes Angus beef and beer pie, fries, beet ketchup, and organic leaves.

Hospitalfield

Our summers aren’t complete without a visit to this art park, featuring works by Phyllida Barlow and Rachel Maclean (also, soon to be, a Tracey Emin). They have extended their opening season, which now runs until October 31. Aside from the outdoor artwork, where else can you eat cakes and quiches at a cafe painted in chewing gum pink and covered in cartoon-looking trees, thanks to a artist design, Nicolas Party? Don’t forget the retro Airstream caravan, which serves take out goodies.

THE WATER MILL BOOKSTORE, GALLERY AND CAFÉ

There is always a warm atmosphere in this cafe, which has a wood-burning stove and stone walls. It’s conducive to a big bowl of their homemade soup, with a gigantic “rustic” sandwich filled with Aberfeldy Butcher ham, and maybe a chai latte. The small art gallery is upstairs and curated by local artist Zanna Wilson.

COFFEE FOR ART LOVERS AT HOME FOR AN ART LOVER

This cafe has one of the nicest outdoor terraces, with umbrellas to protect you from the elements – rain, most likely. The all-day menu features a popular salted caramel panna cotta with biscoff crumbs and chocolate tuille, with savory offerings including barley and leek risotto. There’s also a classic afternoon tea, which includes classic empire cookies and strawberry pies. We are sure Charles Rennie Mackintosh would approve completely.

ABERDEEN ART GALLERY CAFE

This gallery, which features collections from artists such as Joan Eardley and Samuel Peploe, reopened after a major renovation in 2019. Look for the new cafes, one on the ground floor and one with a view beautiful, on the second floor. Apparently the menu is simple, but satisfactory.

Paolozzi’s kitchen

Shop for a painting, then shop for cake and coffee at this small gallery and café, located in a traditional whitewashed building a 20-minute drive from Tarbert. We have the first dibs on their carrot cake and the chocolate cappuccino cheesecake.

We heard good things about this former fire station, which today houses artist studios, a classroom, a gallery and a café. It’s open for food and drink from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday except Friday and Saturday, where they keep their doors open until 10 p.m. The healthy menu includes a full Scottish breakfast and weekend brunch, evening sharing platters, and tea from The Wee Tea Company.

As part of the relaunch of this newly expanded gallery, which opened with an exhibition by Glasgow artist Karla Black, they have integrated their culinary offerings. We are impressed with the menu, which includes local Obadiah coffee, as well as dishes including roast lemon chicken, apricots, red onions, tabbouleh and herb dressing, fish stick brioche and children’s offers for five.

As befits a contemporary art gallery, CCA’s cafe is also quite forward-looking, with some interesting options on its ‘animal-free’ menu, like a sandwich with slices of tempeh and sauerkraut or a pizza with artichoke, tomato, olive, shallot and pesto. There’s also an outdoor patio at the back – not on the busy Sauchiehall Street – where you can enjoy margaritas with your serving of baba ganoush with garlic flatbread.

Climate cafes offer close engagement with members of the climate working group

In Room 002 at Upham Hall, you wouldn’t normally expect to find some of the University of Miami’s biggest sustainability projects and project managers.

However, throughout this semester, this room is home to intimate conversations about Miami’s carbon neutral progress through the Miami Department of Sustainability’s Climate Cafe series.

With two sessions completed and three more to complete, members of the Climate Action Task Force (CATF) and other presenters opened up to the Miami community to discuss topics such as student engagement, transportation, diversity efforts and more.

The idea for the series came from Denali Selent, the Miami CATF student representative.

Selent said that as she researched ways to engage the Miami and Oxford community, she found her inspiration.

“I think it was a high school organization that I saw hosting these cafes, and I was like, ‘Sounds like a really cool idea,'” Selent said.

Selent said she wanted to make sure the community was included and aware of progress under the Presidents’ Pledge for Climate Leadership (PCLC).

“Often times initiatives like this may not get a lot of community involvement,” Selent said, “so [this is] just a way to really give people a place to share their ideas, thoughts, concerns and that way we can make the strongest plan possible by getting as much feedback and thought as possible.

Adam Sizemore, CATF Co-Chair and Director of Sustainability, said everyone in the community has a role to play in efforts towards carbon neutrality.

“In the middle of everything [our] work, we wanted to increase our means of communication, ”said Sizemore,“… not only to let the campus know what’s going on and what we’re going to do, but also to add the collaborative component where it isn’t. not the case. just the working group that comes up with ideas, that we really bring the ideas to the campus community.

David Prytherch, Professor of Geography, presented at the inaugural Climate Cafe on September 15 on transport and carbon offsets.

Prytherch said they are at an advanced stage in their process of opening the conversation with the community.

“We’ve formed these committees, we’ve got some really great people who are very knowledgeable and we’ve started to set some goals that we think we need to accomplish, but now is the perfect time to open it up to the public to say, ‘S ‘Are these the right goals? ”or,“ Are we base?

Prytherch said it was amazing that a university the size of Miami was able to offer opportunities for close engagement with students and the community.

“You can sit down your first semester and participate in a conversation with the campus architect,” Prytherch said. “The next one that’s with Cody Powell, you can sit down in a conversation with someone who oversees hundreds of employees and millions of dollars in college operations.”

Sizemore said he hopes the discussions will strengthen engagement on campus and encourage faculty, students and staff to be part of the overall process.

“The level of engagement in Miami is simply phenomenal [from the] students [in] what they want to accomplish and how they are prepared to be a part of this journey with us, ”said Sizemore.

Selent said that now that the students are back on campus, she hopes to see an increase in student engagement, especially with an interest in Climate Cafe events.

“I hope after all the cafes we can make this a more regular thing and continue to have them throughout the years to come,” Selent said, “just as a place for people to come and share their comments. , share their ideas, any concerns or criticisms that they have of the work done by the working group… and feel comfortable sharing and hearing updates. ”

Sizemore also said they plan to create an online forum for people who can’t come but still want to share their concerns and opinions, and when this is posted it can be found on their page. Instagram.

Niagara Cafe’s recipe for success

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) – Niagara Cafè has served the downtown Buffalo community for almost 30 years.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, 7ABC is digging into the mouth watering staple on the west side of Buffalo. The station visited the restaurant to see if they would reveal their recipe for success.

“When this place went up for sale it[Maria’s husband] said ‘I think we’re going to teach Buffalo how to eat rice and beans and go on a bigger scale!’ It was perfect: the building, the parking lot. Right in the center of the community, ”recalls Maria Hernandez, co-owner of Niagara Cafè.

On Niagara Street, in the heart of downtown Buffalo, is Queen City’s Niagara Cafè, owned by Maria Hernandez and her husband Raúl.

“Before, we had a grocery store and we always wanted to name it after the street. When we had the grocery store, he didn’t call it that. proximity to Niagara Falls too. “says Hernandez.” I wanted to include Niagara, instead of having a Spanish name that we’re very proud of, but we wanted to identify with the community, and Niagara Street was. “

The restaurant serves Buffalo’s better Puerto Rican food.

“The bestseller is roast chicken,” Hernandez said. “The rice, the roast pork, the marinated steak with onions. It is very appreciated with the sauce and the onions. It is very good.”

The popular restaurant draws customers from near and far to have a bite to eat in the house-style cafe.

“We’re proud of our community here. She’s embraced us for almost 30 years. And not just here, we have people coming from out of town, as far as California or Canada, wherever. either. They always say they have to go in and make a stop at Niagara Cafè before going home. It’s just a good feeling to hear that, “she said.

Don’t think you can make your own seasoning at home, because Hernandez says it’s Top secret!

She said, “We season our food with spices – island spices. It is not a hot food. It is not spicy. It just tastes great with the spices we have. We take great pride in the way we season our food and the taste has taken on. “

Hernandez told 7ABC that Niagara Cafè actually started out as a Puerto Rican pizza place.

“My husband has always been a person who imagines things and makes them happen. When this property went up for sale, we had already launched a satellite, say, we launched Puerto Rican Pizza just down the street. mixed with pizza and Puerto Rican food. It worked great but it was a very small place. “

However, Maria and her husband Raul eventually developed the successful business that it is today: 29 years later.

When asked what her recipe for success was, she replied:

“Oh! Never give up! He[Raul] always has a positive attitude. He says if you don’t take a risk you will never get there. Take a chance and see where it goes, and that’s what happened here, ”she explained. “We started from there. Thank goodness our pride and our community have made this such a good and very positive company. From there, it just wasn’t about looking back. “

While the pandemic has put a damper on many restaurants, Niagara Cafe has not been immune. The restaurant continued operations after three months and rebounded in revenue. However, indoor seating has been permanently removed from the restaurant.

First Look: This New Lyncourt Cafe serves the heaviest pastry you’ve ever devoured

(In First look, we quickly pay a visit to a new restaurant or bar in central New York City to give readers an idea of ​​what to expect. Our food critics could possibly visit these places and give us their opinion, but we want to highlight the novelties in our region. If you know of a new place, send an email to [email protected] or call / text me on 315-382-1984. If I take your suggestion, I might just buy you a meal.)

****

Syracuse, NY – Over the past 22 years, Mike Bolognone has delivered premium coffee to hundreds of businesses in downtown New York City for his father’s distribution company. It makes sense that his first experience in the restaurant business was serving the perfect pastry to dip in this cafe.

The Koffee King Cafe opened its doors a few weeks ago at 3712 New Court Ave. in Lyncourt, in the building that once housed Bob’s Barkers’ brick-and-mortar hot dog stand. Mike and his wife, Rebekah, had been talking for years about opening a cafe that would serve him pastries, sandwiches and soups. Earlier this year he went to the office on Townline Road and noticed that the building was for sale.

Mike and Rebekah closed the property in April. They painted the entrance, built a catering counter using discarded wine barrels, and scraped years of grease off the kitchen equipment. While restoring the interior of the cafe, they opened an ice cream stand at the left front of the store on July 2. They serve milkshakes, floats and cones, using locally made Byrne Dairy hard ice cream.

The building is now fully open with five tables inside that can accommodate up to 18 indoor clients. They also have picnic tables in the outdoor patio and a drive-through window.

Throughout the summer, Rebekah worked on perfecting her recipes for coffee. She’s developed a breakfast pizza, chocolate peanut butter banana bread, grilled sandwiches, and soups that fill the belly.

The signature dish here, however, is the Gooey Buns.

Mike grew up in Syracuse eating the sticky buns his grandmother made every weekend. Rebekah’s family side in southern New Jersey had their own cinnamon bun recipe passed down from her great-grandmother. Rebekah spent months mixing the two recipes together until she found the perfect blend.

“I’m in love with the product,” Mike said. “Seriously, these are special. They take so long to make, but it’s totally worth it in the end.

You might think that making sticky buns is nothing more than mixing flour, sugar, cinnamon and water and throwing them in an oven.

Think again.

It takes Samantha Kelly, their Managing Director and Head Pastry Chef, three hours to bake a batch of 30 to 48 buns each morning. “That’s why other people don’t make them,” Rebekah said. “It takes so long for the dough to rise that most people give up.”

The homemade dough recipe comes from Rebekah’s family side. Mike’s great-grandmother, Malvina, would put melted butter on the dough, under the cinnamon and sugar.

You must try …

Sticky buns ($ 3.19): A typical sticky bun from a bakery or supermarket weighs 2-3 ounces. Those at the Koffee King Cafe are anything but typical. I think I understood why they call them Gooey Buns here: the syrupy frosting thinks serves as a binder for the five rings of cinnamon dough rather than a thin, hard sugar frosting.

One of these 6 inch breakfast pastries weighs 9½ ounces, more if you order one with nut and / or cream cheese frosting. This baked yeast yeast dough is heavier than five scrambled eggs, and it’s way tastier.

You will need a large cup of their Paul de Lima medium roast coffee to wash it down. The coffee is fresh and complements the bun well without detracting from its flavor.

TRICK: Make sure you have a knife. These buns are so dense that without a fork, it’ll be like eating an extra-long fried pizza at the State Fair. This is a good thing.

First Look: Koffee King Café

Sausage and Cream Cheese Soup ($ 4.99): Koffee King offers a creamy tomato soup and this tasty soup every day. It just happens to be Mike’s favorite. It’s better since Rebekah came up with the recipe.

The soup has a base of chicken broth with heavy cream and cream cheese. She adds diced onions, garlic and tomatoes before adding ground Italian Gianelli sausage and Parmesan cheese.

I used it as a dip for my fried bologna sandwich. The buttered bun absorbed the meat broth so well. It has proven to be the perfect comfort bowl for this time of year.

Fried Bologna Sandwich ($ 5.99): This is one of the few restaurants in the area that serves such a sandwich, and that’s a shame. We’re not talking about a slice of Oscar Mayer’s lunch meat between two slices of Wonder Bread reheated in a microwave.

Mike fry seven thin slices of premium deli meats in hot vegetable oil while he toasts a buttery potato roll. Again, that’s what Malvina made her for lunch as a child. “It’s always been my favorite sandwich,” he says.

While Mike prefers his plain fried bologna, I had him smear black mustard on the meat. It also offers a slice of Colby-jack cheese.

Affogato ($ 4.49): This coffee-based Italian dessert is unlike anything you’ll find at Starbucks or a fancy cafe or ice cream parlor. It’s basically a coffee float.

Mike drops a thick scoop of vanilla ice cream into the bottom of a 20-ounce mug before filling it almost with roasted Paul de Lima coffee. He adds a dash of caramel syrup before garnishing it with a dollop of soft ice cream. It ends with a swirl of heavy whipped cream and a ring of hot caramel sauce.

The clear plastic cup looks like a drinking lava lamp as the soft serve ice cream slowly melts in the coffee. It’s THE perfect pick-me-up at the end of the afternoon. Sure, it’ll ruin your dinner, but the caffeine buzz fights a bad high of sugar to give you all kinds of energy.

Mimi’s Cuban Bakery and Café opens in Flint with authentic cuisine

FLINT, MI – Rob Cranmer was one of the first customers to purchase authentic Cuban food, a mouthwatering experience he had deprived of for years at a newly opened bakery and cafe in Flint.

“The little cafes there were just great. It was just amazing, ”Cranmer said of his experiences living in Florida indulging in local store offerings. “I would take the kids to school in the morning and when we came back we would just buy fresh bread and pastries and we really missed that. It’s so amazing to finally have something here.

Cranmer, a 25-year resident of Flint, surprised his wife with fried croquettes among other items from Mimi’s Cuban Bakery and Café when it opened on Tuesday, October 5.

The company, located at 1844 S. Dort Highway, reminded Cranmer of the experiences local Florida cafes gave him years ago.

Cranmer and his wife moved from Miami to the Flint area in 1996, a few years after suffering from Hurricane Andrew.

“We have really been waiting for this for a long time,” he said enthusiastically.

Liset Antunez, owner of Mimi’s, served community members with authentic food prepared with recipes she learned at just nine years old on Tuesday as a constant stream of customers frequented the business throughout the day.

Originally from Cuba, Antunez learned to cook from her mother Belikis and her grandmother Zoila Perez, whom she affectionately called “Mimi”.

“I know she’s happy,” Antunez said of her grandmother.

The business owner said her grandmother, who is her father’s mother, also loved to cook. She died last year on August 26, a day after Antunez’s birthday.

“We came here to invest. We never thought of restaurants or business, ”Antunez said of his family’s move to Flint three years ago.

Since news of the business opening spread throughout the community, positive messages and encouragement have poured in, Antunez said.

“All the customers call me and leave me great messages like; “You can do it and you’ll be fine. “I am receiving tremendous support from the community,” said the owner.

Antunez admitted that the restaurant doesn’t cook the healthiest food options, but they are delicious options because everything is prepared on site.

Dishes on the menu include potatoes stuffed with chorizo, fried ham croquettes, tamales with a house sauce, rice, beans and a fricase de pollo – chicken and potatoes simmered in a savory sauce to tomato base.

And, of course, the Cuban sandwich.

On Sundays, Antunez will serve “Crazy Platters,” a dish that includes fried pieces of pork, tamales, and tilapia bites served with a slice of toasted Cuban bread smeared with butter and garlic.

Drink options include Cuban espresso, juices, and smoothies, as well as Cuban Mamey milkshake – a treat made from tropical mamey fruit grown in Cuba and parts of Central and South America.

Guests will also have the chance to complement their meals with something sweet from an extensive dessert menu.

Dessert options include Cuban pies and other flavored pies such as flan as well as arroz con leche – a favorite of Latin American cuisine.

The opening hours of Mimi’s Cuban Bakery and Café are From 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and from 6 a.m. to noon on Sunday.

The restaurant will also provide catering services.

“We appreciate the opportunity the community has given us to enter the community here,” Antunez said.

Death Cafe, where you eat snacks and talk about mortality | Montana News

By ALEX MILLER, Daily Column of Bozeman

LIVINGSTON, Mont. (AP) – White paper panels provided a sort of breadcrumb trail to the second floor of the Shane Lalani Center for the Arts. In a room next to a dark rehearsal space, Mariana Olsen and her husband Will Bernard were busy making coffee and snacks.

On a small table next to Oreos and other goodies was a plastic skull that Bernard named Edward wearing a flat-brimmed hat, silently welcoming visitors to the city’s very first Death Café.

The point of a Death Café is not to focus on the gruesome or horrific aspects of death. Rather, it serves as a common space where people can discuss everything related to death, from the immediate feelings of losing a loved one to funeral expenses and the administrative aspect of death, all while enjoying coffee, tea and coffee. snacks.

The idea to bring a Death Café here came to Olsen after two deaths that she experienced firsthand last year. She euthanized her cat in April 2020, and went down to a rabbit hole to better understand how to discuss and explain this death to her daughter.

Then, in September 2020, her father passed away. She was in the room when her father perished, but in the days leading up to his death she feared she would not see him due to COVID-19 protocols. She had devised a plan to break in by scaling the walls of the hospital to see him – a plan she didn’t need after hospital staff gave her permission to be in the room. .

The research she had conducted on death over the previous months had prepared her for this moment, but she was quickly faced with the reality that death is a taboo that few people want – or know how – Talk.

“When my dad died it was really isolating,” Olsen told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. “I really didn’t have anyone to talk to, I didn’t know what to say, no one really knew what to say to me. And I just realized there’s a bit of that really awkward space when it comes to talking about death.

Bernard Crettaz, Swiss sociologist, created the first version of Death Café in 2004, naming it Café Mortels. The model of this first meeting was used by an English duo in 2011 to influence what Death Cafés are today: a meeting intended to allow a fluid, confidential and non-judgmental dialogue about death.

Although Olsen and Bernard’s cafe was the first of its kind in Livingston, there have been over 13,000 Death Cafés in 80 countries over the past decade.

This meeting was small and intimate, with only three people in attendance to discuss their experiences with death. Due to the personal nature of their stories, participants asked not to be named.

One person had been to at least three or four Death Cafés before. The other coffee lovers had heard of them and, after seeing the Olsen Facebook event, wanted to come and experience the space where they could share and listen to experiences with death.

There was no real structure to the conversations outside of some icebreakers that Olsen and Bernard had prepared, but there were tears, laughter and nods of agreement over the difficulty of the topic at hand. study.

One question was about how they viewed their own death.

One participant said she recently became a mother and reflected on how it changed her view of death. Previously, she had come to terms with her own mortality, but having a child put life in a different perspective.

“It’s easier to come to terms with your own death than the eventual death of your child,” she said.

Another wanted to live long enough to see her son turn 18.

“When he was 18, I was like ‘Yes! I did it, ”she said.

Death Cafés are nonprofit “social franchises”, Olsen said. They are not mission or goal oriented, and they are not trying to sell anything. But Olsen hoped that this coffee and others like it would plant a seed in people’s minds to view death in more real terms.

“I think we need to humanize death again by talking about it, putting a face on it and making it okay to talk about it, allowing people to cry about it, and even making it so. ‘It’s okay to laugh about it,’ she said.

In the 18 months since the start of the pandemic, death has become all too familiar and, to some extent, impersonal. In County Gallatin, 69 people have died from complications from COVID-19.

Although survival rates for COVID-19 are high but can vary based on age, medical conditions and other factors, Olsen said it is the dehumanization of the smaller percentage of those who die from the virus , and the way people perceive it, that worries him.

“We depersonalized it because we think in numbers, and it became political,” Olsen said. “And it’s really, really scary because the cost is something a lot of people won’t see until it’s too late.”
