ViaVia donates €5000
A new year, time to think about the one that has passed. We don’t do the whole ‘good intentions list’, because last year turned out pretty nice and we wouldn’t want to change a thing. We know we’re lucky and we hope hope we radiate this when we serve you. Nonetheless, we’d like to share our happines in another, financial, way as well.
Since 2017 we give a share of our profit to a good cause. This year, we’ve chosen twe organisations from our home town: SOS Kinderdorpen (they provide a home for unaccompanied minor asylum seekers) and Opus III (they already managed to build schools, an orphanage home and dispensarium in the gorgeous Indian region Rajastan).
We gave both organizations €2500 to support them. Because we firmly believe that everyone – wherever you were born – should receive opportunities to build a full life for him- or herself. But we couldn’t have materialized this vision without you. So next time you visit us, know that we do really serve a bit of soul food…

As of Wednesday April 29th we’ll be open for take-away ons Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 16h30 until 19h30. We have proper dishes as well as our spaghetti sauce by the liter.
ViaVia Joker travellers cafes each are meeting places for travellers and lovers of world kitchen, a holiday ambience or a homey talk at the bar.
As the first of all the ViaVia’s we took our first steps in 1995. Ever since, we provide you with dishes from all over the world. From an Indonesian Ikan Pepes to a Mexican Chivichanga. From a Senegales Yassa Poulet to a Peruvian Pastel de Choclo. Housed in two typical townhouses, we aim for a homey atmosphere eventhough we gathered our recipes in places far from home. Of course you’re also more than welcome to browse through our library of travel guides or to enjoy a drink surrounded by bamboo on our terrace.
Do you suffer from holiday blues? You want to find some inspiration for your next trip? Or do you want to taste a slice of all the good things North, East, South and West have to offer? We love to accompany you with a bite of the world kitchen and the good vibes that come with that!
Since we’re a travellers café, we serve you a selection from the world kitchen. Our menu changes weekly, although we do follow some principles: there’re always three vegetarian options, one dish with chicken, one with meat and one with fish. Furthermore, every day we have a list of tapas on offer.
And of course… there’s always our famous spaghetti…
If you’d want to make a reservation: a table is only one phone call away: 0032 16 40 40 45 (we don’t take reservations for a table by e-mail).
Our core business is to bring people together with a love for world kitchen and travelling.
We’re proud to say that everything that comes out of our kitchen, is fresh and homemade (except for the bread).
We offer various fairtrade products, e.g. coffee, tea, some of our wines and juices.
We do hope that the joy we derive from doing what we do, reflects in the way we serve our customers and in the way we present our colourful dishes. We realise we’re lucky to be a part of the ViaVia. That’s why we want to share this fortune with others: since 2017 we decided to give a a share of our profit to a good cause. Last edition, vzw Recht op Migratie received the honours.
