Our mission

Social justice

You who frequent the Café, you will be treated fairly, regardless of your gender, your sexual orientation, your gender identity, your nationality, your religion, your social background, your tastes and interests. You will be welcomed into non-judgment! We aim for equal rights with a view to collective solidarity between you, by and for you: in this diverse micro-society that is the Café de rue, everyone is entitled to their dignity and respect.

mutual aid

Help each other through sharing according to each other’s strengths and limitations. Mutual aid at the Café makes it possible to overcome certain difficulties, obstacles, challenges, but also to face the different problems and realities of people by combining the strengths of all to facilitate the daily life of each individual.


The Street Café operates in a spirit of solidarity allowing everyone to weave links where a feeling of mutual aid and a feeling of moral duty towards each of its members is born. In short, it is a place where each individual acts and collaborates in the general interest of the group.

“Let us help each other, The burden of our ills will be lighter. »
– JEAN-PIERRE CLARIS DE FLORIAN, Fables, the Blind Man and the Paralytic


Respect is to consider someone according to the value that we give to this person. It is also to accept the limits of a person so as not to exceed them. To respect someone, you must not be in judgment, but in the acceptance of the other person.
