About us

Concept

There is nothing as valuable as the time we are given and we encourage you to make the most of it.

For just 5 cents per minute, you’re invited to enjoy free Wi-Fi, fresh coffee & tea, vegan and vegetarian food, co-working facilities, inspiring events and much more at our anticafé.

Anticafé Kitchen:

Most of our ingredients come directly from farmers of community supported agriculture: organic, fair, regional, seasonal and of high quality. Our food is always fresh and made with love.

Anticafé Coworking:

We offer fast internet & printing, Skype cabins & a meeting room as well as an inspiring working atmosphere to make your work the most effective. We host events for freelancers and entrepreneurs to improve skills, network and keep updated with this world’s fast-changing industries.

Anticafé Community:

Be’kech is a community-driven space for everyone in our neighbourhood. Everyone of our customers can take on ownership to shape the future of be’kech. This concept can only work if those who can pay more support those who can’t. When you „check out” you can choose to pay only for the minutes you spent here or add a little to support our community and pay it forward.

be'kech Culture:

In the evenings, be’kech transforms into a space for music, culture and the arts. We regularly show independent movies, host live concerts and organise readings.

be'kech Values:

We have no place for sexism, homophobia, transphobia, any form of racism such as anti-Muslim racism, anti-Jewish racism, any sort of discrimination as well as violent or aggressive behaviour. Be'kech is a safe space for all, an open forum for dialogue, criticism and hope and a place where we stand up for one another.

We are excited to spend time with you!
