Raleigh, N.C. — A pay-what-you-can cafe will open its doors next month in downtown Raleigh.
The restaurant will offer a laid-back coffee shop atmosphere with a menu that includes buttermilk biscuits with sage sausage gravy, an assortment of sandwiches including smokey chipotle pimento cheese and a waffle selection. All food and beverages will be pay-what-you-can. It will be open 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
The nonprofit is using the pay-what-you-can approach for food and drink. The model was made by the One World Every Body Eats Foundation. There are more than 60 cafes operating with this model.
The pay-what-you-can model allows people to pay in one of five ways:
- pay what they can afford
- pay a suggested donation
- pay what they would typically pay plus a donation
- pay specifically for someone else’s full meal
- pay by volunteering
