We are a morning-ritual cafe that offers interactive experiences with mindfulness practices focusing on fun daily topics while serving coffee to our Burning Man citizens.

Our Mission

At Cafetopia, we are on a mission to provide a vibrant and energizing

morning experience for the Burning

Man Community. We believe that starting your day off at our Cafe can set the tone for a transformative experience on the playa. Our campmates of high-vibe individuals are committed to creating a positive and uplifting atmosphere that inspires

connection, joy, and magic. Through our daily Dream Series and guidance, we aim to ground citizens of BRC in the present moment and cultivate a deep sense of wonder and awe.

We are passionate about building a community that values all 10 Principles.

2019 is when our journey to the playa as a theme camp begins! 

We named our camp ITOPIA and brought in 30 amazing humans from all over the world to join us in this magical year.

The offering of Itopia camp was not only the solar reflective A-frames you see... but offerings of ceremonies of unconditional love. 

To a new lover, a stranger, or the love of your life, you'd be able to celebrate the unconditional love you have for them for the rest of your life!

Where 38 beautiful souls gathered to create Cafetopia Camp for the very fist time as a theme camp! We successfully built our camp, had the most gourmet meals, and rocked our cafe offerings throughout the week. We were rated best coffee in the neighborhood from our neighboring camps. 

Turned out... we were the best place to start the morning!

Camp creators Indigo + Agape were on a mission to not only celebrate their union of unconditional love at the burn in 2019, they also wanted to bring this shared love to others at the playa.


TO 2022

We fell in love with our offering, with the eclectic energy that we were able to create for those who stumbled upon our camp or rode across playa for their vegan power balls. The magic is here to stay and only get louder. With an incredible comeback of the most exquisite team returning home to the best as a family and expanding community!
