Myrtillo café is a ray of sunshine in a bleak reality. Founded in 2013, 90% of the team working in Myrtillo consists of people with disabilities as part of a social cooperative trying to provide a better future for vulnerable people and fight mental health stigma. It couldn’t be more appropriately located, as the building where Myrtillo is hosted was a gift from the Norwegian government aiming to re-educate and train people that suffered injuries during WW2.
Myrtillo is surrounded by a lovely park and if you are traveling with children you will find that the playground across from the café and the children’s library are nice perks while you enjoy your drink or snack. You can enjoy your salad or cake on the terrace or in the atmospheric interior of the café where they display some of the machines used back in the 1950s. Myrtillo often hosts concerts, book launches, and other events so keep an eye on their social media. The people running and working for Myrtillo make us proud every day.
