Hilbert Café is our guild's own café. Every day we serve nice and inexpensive sandwiches, sallads, coffee and cookies.
Because Hilbert Café is run voluntary we are in need of workers. Working in Hilbert Café is a nice experience and in return you will get free lunch the day you work. You can either work from 8.00 to 10.00 or from 10.00 to 13.00. To work you sign up here on this website. Follow the link to the left which says “Work Shifts”.
As a Ladybug you are responsible for Hilbert Café one day/week during half a semester, 7 weeks. In the morning you open the Café and make sure the workers are doing what they should and that everything in the café is working as it should. You get thanked as a ladybug by free lunch from the café the day you work AND four days extra for every day you work.
The Baked ones make sure the café has a supply of home made goodies. That can include that they bake everything between small cookies to more specific cakes like semlor and cinnamon buns on the Day of the Cinnamon bun. The Baked ones usually has almost unlimited freedom in choosing what they would like to make, as long as something gets baked.
The Managing Director of Hilbert Café (aka MDH) is responsible for ensuring that Hilbert Café as a whole functions as it should, takes care of the bookkeeping and finances for the café, keeps the budget in check and orders consumables for the café. As a cafémaster, it is important to maintain good contact with the house and try to respond to their complaints and comments regarding the café business.

Every year, the environmental administration comes to visit and it is the cafémaster's responsibility to assist them during the visits and to receive and remedy remarks so that the café can continue to serve baguettes and salads. Good hygiene is maintained in the café's spaces, and ladybugs are found for each day of the week. At the beginning of the semester, when the position of vice cafémaster is newly elected, he should be trained by his cafémaster. You spend one semester as vice cafémaster and then move on to one semester of cafémaster.
As Operating Director of Hilbert Café, AKA Vice CoffeeMaster, one aids the Managing Director of Hilbert Café, aka CoffeeMaster, but ones primary task is to supply workers to every café shift. One tags along the CoffeeMaster to learn a little bit of everything; one must master all four elements of coffee-mastering: coffee making, baguette-ing, baking and ventilating. Or maybe more accurately described as buying coffee in batches, ordering baguette ingredients, recruiting bakeds and accounting. As Vice CoffeeMaster, one has zero fiscal responsibility, but rather one must make sure that the café can run smoothly in its daily operations.
