So, at the meeting place cafe, we believe that coffee builds community. It's even written in our mission statement!
"To serve quality coffee in an environment that builds community!"
But, have you ever wondered why we say that; or what about coffee creates an environment that builds community?
Well, if you've ever asked those question, keep reading.
So, if you read our mission statement carefully, it explains exactly why, and how coffee can build community, in our opinion.
It's all about one specific word in our mission statement....
The environment created in a cafe is the determining factor of the strength of the community atmosphere inside.
And, at the meeting place, we pride ourselves in creating a positive, uplifting, and welcoming environment that brings people together with one common reason; to love & encourage each other while drinking a delicious beverage that they all love.
So, next time you find yourself wondering why you feel so comfortable in a cafe, or what makes a cafe atmosphere so welcoming; think about the people & staff you met there, and remember how that cafe made you feel because that environment is difficult to achieve in full.
But, when it is fully achieved and well-implemented, it's creates an unforgettable experience.
The environment (along with the taste of the coffee) are the main deciding factors of how memorable that cafe will be for most people.
We can't wait to meet you & make you feel welcome in our TMPC community!
Hope to see you soon!
This week we'd like to explore a few unique cafés from around the world!
Sorry Coffee Co (Canada)
“What's truly different about the Sorry Coffee Co is its unique branding. The Sorry cafe logo that appears on signage and cups is drawn by a local designer and before anyone has a chance to get bored of it, it changes. Every three months, the cafe logo is replaced by a brand new one. Sorry also provides pencils to customers, encouraging them to create art on their cups and come up with their own cafe logo designs.”
Little Man Cafe (Australia)
“The Little Man Cafe is a quaint suburban cafe in Melbourne, Australia that was recently born out of a massive transformation of an old Post Office building. The minimalist all-white space is now a homey outpost for coffee lovers and those in need of a snack in a friendly environment. The cafe is designed in a way that makes it resemble a pristine home kitchen..” The idea of this cafe is that you feel like you are just hanging out in your kitchen having breakfast and sipping your coffee!
