Organic healthy hotspot - Gallery POP in Domburg
"The fact that sustainability plays a more and more important role in our lives is something they have understood with POP already for a long time."
Organic healthy hotspot - Gallery POP in Domburg. Like the name already says this is a gallery and that is also how POP started. Not very long ago they extended the coffee area which resulted in a nice cafe to have a sit and enjoy organic food and drinks.
My sister works in Domburg and last week she send me an app message that I should visit Gallery POP once, they have organic food and she said I would really like the place. So that is what I did of course, last week on Saturday they had a Farmers Market in Domburg with a lot of stands and business so that was the perfect moment to visit the gallery. Because it is originally a gallery and it still is but it is extended with an organic lunch cafe, a fair trade shop and a sustainable place to stay the night. Gallery POP really developed itself into a sustainable concept with different aspects in it.
At POP they describe themselves: 'POP stands for nice, happy, youthful and playful for pop art, pop music, popular and poppy. Besides that the creative smells, colors and people define the uniqueness, atmosphere and character of POP.' And I could not have explained it any better than that because this really is what POP is and what it stands for.
The name POP by the way comes from the like-named moon sign in the Maya calendar. That sign stands for new creation after a period of chaos. It is a time of new plans and big businesses that the Mayas celebrated extensively. The owners from POP heard about this while they were travelling around the world and found this name to be suitable for their own 'big' business.
When you enter with POP you feel the atmosphere. At the right of the entrance, on the photo straight ahead, you see all those colorful products. Everything in this shop is fair trade and looks very colorful. Besides that everything in the cafe is made of as many fair trade and sustainable materials as possible. Not only the products they sell carry the theme of sustainable with them, but also the interior of the cafe does and that is what I like, because that way you can see the owners really care about that. Sustainable entrepreneurship is key with POP and you can see that in every detail and that really shows how much it means to them. They also use solar energy for the business.
Like I already said, Gallery POP also has an organic cafe with only organic food and drinks. I found it very difficult to make a choice. I went to have breakfast, but what do you pick when everything is healthy and delicious?! I decided to go for the happy breakfast and I can ensure you I was really full afterwards. The breakfast existed of a scone with jam and cream combined with yogurt with fresh fruit, muesli and honey, a fresh orange juice and coffee. Very delicious, especially the scone that was still warm from the oven made it totally complete. Other breakfast you can choose are for example the crispy morning with among other things yogurt, fresh fruit and muesli or the luxury breakfast with among other things fresh baked sandwiches, a croissant and a boiled egg.
As you can see even the utensils are made of fair trade material, so you can find that everywhere in this gallery. Besides these delicious breakfast you can also have grilled cheese sandwiches, home made (gluten free) cake, ice -cream of -coffee, choco specials and fruit juices. So they really have something for everybody at Gallery POP. If you like art, want to shop sustainable or want to enjoy an organic breakfast or brownie everything is possible here. And if you are in Domburg after all you can make this day into a beach day since that is just around the corner of POP.
As you could have read I am very enthusiastic about this concept and of course the food of POP. The fact that sustainability plays a more and more important role in our lives is something they understood at POP very long already. That sustainability, attention to the world around us and the environment took a very important place here and I believe that a lot of cafes can follow this example.
