Maté Café is organised by a group of friends living around Brighton. We are from Brighton, The UK, Europe, Syria, the World.

Through Maté tea; we aim to share, food, stories, music, language and friendship. You are welcome to join in.

Pronounced 'mat-heh' maté is made from dried Yerba maté  leaves, and is often a shared drink, with glasses being passed between friends. known for its rejuvenating qualities.
