Repair Cafes are distinct from Restart Parties, but there is considerable overlap, and much to be gained from sharing information. They are co-ordinated from the Netherlands (http://repaircafe.org), and are not in competition with Restart Parties (there’s more than enough to fix for us both!)
Repair Cafes tend to be less hi-tech than Restart Parties, though we will tackle computers, laptops, tablets and phones when requested. Repairs are always free, and a cafe (which charges modest prices) is associated with the event, to cater for those who are waiting to be seen.
