When I first found out about Caffiends, I was surprised to find such a wonderful mix of things I already loved: coffee, sustainable practices, cute cafes, comfy couches, and of course, a sense of community. It continues to be a unique, quirky, and special little place that I love and am lucky to be a part of. Caffiends is a home, for me and many others for whom it has offered a safe haven in a big and busy school.
I discovered Caffiends on my first day at Victoria College and immediately knew it was a unique and special place on campus. As a coffee fanatic, local business supporter, environmentalist, and advocate for community-based initiatives, the cafe embodies so much of what I stand for. I’m constantly surprised by the support and acceptance to be found in the Caffiends community; it is a place of belonging for so many students, myself included.
