Hi! We're Ella and Maxime. 

Our story started back in August 2016, when we met each other during our studies at Hotelschool the Hague. We happened to live just two rooms apart at our student housing, and quickly bonded over our love for food, coffee and dreams of opening our own cafés one day! Who would have thought that fast forward four years, our dreams would become reality? 

In the midst of a global pandemic, we decided to risk it all and go for our dreams. The result was Eighty-Two - a healthy all-day brunch café! As young graduates, our budget was limited, which is why we opted to do a lot of DIY whilst constructing the café. We also decided to record the full process of opening our own café on the social media platform Tiktok, and quickly gained an engaged following who helped us make decisions in our café. We can therefore proudly say that our café is probably the first co-created café out there!

We are so excited to open up soon and cannot wait to meet everyone!
