Greetings to everyone. I am the creator of a new concept business called Celtic Quest Cafe. Currently we have everything set but have run into a funding problem and I am asking for your or anyone's assistance. But before I do let me tell you a little about CQC and what it's all about. Celtic Quest Cafe is a one of a kind cafe. We have taken the past 3 years to research and locate the most unique vendors and Eco friendly vendors that we could find. Once you enter CQC you will find that all our tables, chairs, couches and a lot of our decor are recycled items. The paint and floor staining are all made from soy based products and Eco friendly. All of our cleaning materials are made from plant based products and biodegradable. The cups, napkins, to-go sandwich containers, bags all the way down to the stir stix are 100% biodegradable and compostable within 45 days. We encourage all of our patrons to recycle their trash before they leave the cafe. Therefore you will notice in one section of the cafe several containers to dispose of your waste before you leave. One of those "waste" containers will be for the compostable cups etc used in CQC. Those materials will then be put into our compost bins (along with any compostable waste created in the cafe like the coffee grounds) to create a rich fertile Organic soil! Which we will then donate some to the community gardens and some will be sold in the cafe per lbs. We will be located on Kirkwood Avenue, in Downtown Bloomington. The café will be known for over 20 flavors of coffee (rotated in and out on a regular basis); Espresso based drinks, Teas, Tisanes (the largest selection of Teas and Tisanes in any coffee shop in Bloomington), Smoothies, Bubble Teas and coffee based products. In addition, light snacks, freshly made soups and sandwiches will be offered to accompany the coffee based products. There will be a small retail section of the café dedicated to imported Irish snack and gift items. Irish/Celtic music will be played for ambiance and we will provide free wireless Internet access for patrons to attract locals, professionals and students in the nearby areas and across Bloomington. The mission of the Cafe is to provide high quality products and service in a warm, unique and inviting environment. All while being the only environmentally friendly Irish café in Bloomington. Several times a month we will invite local Irish musicians to come and showcase their talent for all to enjoy. We also plan to invite Environmental speakers and Leaders to come and help educate everyone on what they can do to help improve their own little section of planet Earth. Now back to our issue with funding. Celtic Quest Cafe needs YOUR help! I was asked recently by several people if they could donate money to help during CQC's funding crunch. Well good news to everyone!! I've teamed up with PayPal so that anyone can make a donation to help make CQC become the fantastic Eco Irish cafe that we all know, love and want to open!! Thank you all so much!! BTW you don't need to live here to donate. Donations are accepted from anyone and everyone!! Please visit our website to learn more about the donation process!
