Dear Friends, Supporters, and Kind Souls,

I'm Bert, and for 42 years I worked always with pleasure in a mental health institution with kids and young adults who experience all kind of mental and psychiatric issues. I could do this work for so long because all these youngsters had hearts of gold despite their issues. Most of them still had dreams for the future as big as there smiles on their faces.

During these 42 years

I have poured my heart and soul into the mental health working with these young people. But now, I have a dream for my own and I'm ready to go into an entirely other direction and start a new journey for myself. I love Romania and I want to start a small café there to bring joy, comfort, and community to Romania.

My dream is simple yet overwehlming

to create a warm and inviting space where locals can gather, unwind, and forge connections over a delicious cup of coffee, a refreshing drink, and a nice, simple and small dish

Picture this

a cozy cafe nestled in the heart of the city of Bucharest, where the aroma of freshly brewed coffee mingles with the laughter of friends engaged in lively games of Rummicub and cards. A sanctuary where weary souls can find solace after a hard day's work, where the simple pleasures of life are savored and celebrated.

But every dream requires a foundation

and my eye fell on a nice canvas with some deferred maintenance for this vision - an old building with potential, awaiting a loving touch and a breath of new life. This historic gem is brimming with character and charm, but it needs more than just a coat of paint; it needs a complete transformation to become the vibrant hub of community that I envisions.

The Past

This is where you come in, my dear friends. I invite you to join me in making my dream a reality by supporting my crowdfunding campaign to restore this beloved building and bring this cafe vision to life. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will make a tangible difference in turning my dream into a thriving reality.


With your support, I will not only revive a piece of local history but also create a welcoming haven where memories are made, friendships flourish, and hearts are nourished. Besides that I can still put my hospitality at the service of other people and the community. Together, let's build more than just a cafe; let's build a home away from home, a sanctuary for the soul, and a beacon of hope for the community.

The Future

Join me on this inspiring journey and be a part of something truly special. Together, we can help each other and write the next chapter of his story, one cup of coffee, one game of cards, and one heartfelt smile at a time. Thank you for your generosity, your kindness, and your belief in the power of dreams. Together, anything is possible.
