"Pay whatever you want" cafe
« on: February 06, 2007, 01:12:09 PM »

A Kirkland cafe with no prices

With its blood-red walls and black leather sofas, Kirkland's Terra Bite Lounge looks like any other coffee shop until you get to the menu. There are no prices listed. Terra Bite doesn't have them.

You read that right: No prices. Customers pay what and when they like, or not at all it makes no difference to the cafe employees, who are instructed not to peek when people put money in the metal lock box.

interesting idea.

if it doesn't work, they could try it  with like a $1-2 cover charge added in.

We have a place here called One World Cafe dedicated to the concept of "Everybody Eats." Basically you pay what you feel you can afford.

Yeah it's close, not close enough that I'd prolly go (Kirkland's about 20 miles from my present locale). I heard an interview with the owner Ervan this morning, it's an interesting story.

More than coffee, sandwiches or even convenience, Peretz is selling good karma.

I hope it works for him, I want to believe it will. Good karma is a good thing.

lol, I had totally forgotten about that place. Check out One World sometime if you're in the area, pretty good food. IIRC, they have "suggested donations" but you're not bound to them.

Buncha tree huggin' hippie crap, though.  Cartman

I like hippies.  My CFO's wife is one.  She always sends along home made granola to our corporate retreats.

I found a place in West Yellowstone Montana once that did "Drinkin' with Lincoln." IIRC it was $5 for a 5 quart bucket of beer and/or cocktails were 5 for $5. Good times.
