ANKEN Green Warehouse Cafe – Affordable, Healthy, Farm to Table
Featuring an outdoor terrace and a friendly relaxed atmosphere, the cafe serves up healthy, affordable sandwiches, salads, pastas, pizzas & soups for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
ANKEN began urban farming as an experimental way to recycle waste from the Cafe. Food scraps and coffee grounds are fed to our worm farm. The worms turn the waste into organic fertilizer which in turn nourishes our rooftop vegetables and herbs. Produce goes back to the cafe: tomatoes, mint, basil, rocket, eggplant, green peppers, lettuce, spinach, cucumbers and long beans.
