"What is on the second floor?” you ask as we stand in the large and welcoming hallway. It is a question that I hear multiple times in a day, and it always makes me grin with delight. There is so much more than just our dining room tucked behind our front doors, and one of my favourite things is to share the second floor with our community.
“Come on up,” I invite. Together we make our way up the large (and original 1800's) staircase. We turn left at the top. Directly in front of us is the room we have named “the Study.” The windows are large, the wifi free, & the coffee delicious. Tables of different sizes are tucked in amidst ferns and other plants, along with a couch, some comfy chairs and a bay window seat. It’s one of the best kept secrets of our space.
The cozy room is seating for our downstairs counter service café, but we also designed the space to encourage freelance workers to have a place to work that is outside of their home. With multiple plugins, free wifi, and our full menu available at the counter downstairs it’s the perfect place to bring your computer and settle in to work for the day.
The café is more than just coffee too. Our bone broth is growing in popularity, and it really is the perfect snack to help you power through. All of our baked goods are gluten free (and good, as our staff so proudly proclaim) and made with whole ingredients. Our house made water kefir is sparkling, refreshing, and packed with probiotics.
So whether you are meeting a fellow professional for a team work session or plan to spend the day by yourself, you will be charmed by the open and airy space. You will be productive, inspired, and leave further ahead than when you arrived.
