The very popular mobile burger bar that used to frequent First Thursdays and the Oranjezicht City Farm’s Market has found a permanent residence at 103 Bree Street. Inside & You’re Out Burger (IYO) will be opening on Thursday 2nd April and will give Cape Town a taste of how delicious (and well priced) ethical can be.

An idea conceptualised by two enviro-foodies, IYO Burger’s sustainability pact doesn’t stop at ethical, locally sourced meat, bread, cheese, veggies and alcohol.

From the construction of the restaurant, to the wood finishings, straight through to the packaging of the burgers, every detail has been taken into consideration to have as little impact on the environment as possible. Don’t forget the hemp and organic cotton uniforms!

A very valid reason to visit.

All the wood in the restaurant is made from spruce board and is FSC approved, which means that for every tree cut down, another one is planted.

Furthermore, the vegetable boxes are all made from recycled pallets and covered with a beeswax seal, then filled with organic and self-grown vegetables.

The beer mugs, coffee cups, smoothie jars and shot glasses are made from recyclable glass provided by Consol, and till slips are sent electronically via email.
