The Dublin dog cafe, Pupp, is operating a pay-what-you-can system on their porridge. The Clanbrassil Street cafe has set no fixed price on their menu offering of organic porridge with a seasonal homemade compote, so are inviting diners to give what they feel they can afford.

The staff suggest between €3-4, and they already report that a third of visitors pay €4, while 81% have paid between €4 and €7. The average spent on the porridge is €4.92.

Writing in a blog post, owner Paul Froggatt said contributing to the community has been a “critical part” of the Pupp mission statement.

One element of that mission is ensuring there’s something on the menu for everyone.
Any contribution is welcome, whether it be a few cents or a few Euros. While we cover the cost of the ingredients and production, we hope that the generosity of some visitors will allow others to eat at a fraction of the price.

Paul also states that none of the ingredients were compromised in order to make the dish a potential freebie.

We didn’t want to compromise on quality and taste, so tested a number of different options before settling on porridge made with organic oats and a seasonal homemade compote. It was important to make the pay-what-you-can dish just as appealing as the rest of our menu, and it has since become a popular selection for regulars (particularly on weekend mornings).

So now you can enjoy your value porridge while your pup enjoys some doggy beer
