Help Bring the Burgundian British Double Decker Bus Cafe to Providence

The Burgundian Coffee and Waffles is transporting a bus from across the pond to serve Providence sweet and savory liege waffles and specialty coffee drinks.

Burgundian Coffee and Waffles is bringing a British Double Decker bus across the pond to the streets of Providence. The bus turned mobile cafe will be restored for guests to enjoy sweet and savory liege waffles and specialty coffee and other drinks from a service window much like a food truck. People will also have the opportunity to grab a seat inside the bus and order from the counter, head upstairs and enjoy their waffle at one of the tables or sip on a drink at a stool along the coffee bar.

The full coffee bar will serve Borealis coffee and espresso and there will also be four taps serving cold brew, nitro coffee, kombucha and another rotating offer including lemonade, craft ginger beer or apple pear cider. On Tuesdays, the waffle bus plans to showcase local small food producers such as PVDonuts, the Perfect Sweet Macarons, Jaju Pierogis, Gastros 401 and more for a Takeover Tuesday collaboration.

Although the bus is already being built in Great Britain, the Burgundian himself, Shane Matlock, still needs your help! From now through March 5, head over to the Kickstarter page to join the group that is helping to bring this bus to life. The $30,000 fundraising goal will provide the bus with beautiful flooring on both the lower and upper levels, tabletops and counters made from reclaimed wood that is older than the United States, restoration to the original benches, a speaker system and a set up for the cafe and bar area.

So what do you get for making a pledge? Each donation to the restoration project is backed with different levels of rewards. Some rewards include free coffees and waffles, table reservations, options for catering, Rhode Island Food Fights Passports, both wedding and Patriots tailgating packages and much more. Remember, the Kickstarter campaign is all or nothing. The project will only be funded if it reaches its $30,000 goal by March 5!
