An interesting honour has been bestowed on a Kelowna coffeehouse.
According to a survey by Buzzfeed, Kelowna’s Third Space, is one of 31 coffeehouses in the country “you need to visit before you die.”
Buzzfeed writer Sarah Aspler posed the question to her Internet audience, “which coffee shop should every Canadian coffee lover visit?”
The network of users jumped in to support Third Space.
“It’s such a cool atmosphere and their coffee tastes like nothing else you’ve tried before! It’s a perfect place to grab a bite and do work. They have great tables for laptops and a chill vibe. I think the fact that’s it’s not really well known and not super busy makes it just that much more adorable,” stated the nomination for Third Space.
Third Space’s top ranking on the popular online network touches the core of what the non-profit is all about, building relationships.
“The term ‘third space’ derives from the idea that people live in three main spaces: home, work and a space where people find community,” said CEO Scott Lanigan.
“We want to be that space for people to build relationships and find support and inspiration with others. We are convinced that through intentional relationships, every person can experience faith, hope & purpose.”
The non-profit foundation, the vision of founder Ken Stober, reinvests 100 per cent of their coffee profits to helping those in need through its wellness centre and counseling services. Communal tables and meeting space provide a great hangout, but plan for social discussion as you sip.
You’ll find Third Space at Landmark buildings at 1708 Dolphin Avenue.
