Come hang out at the Studio 89 cafe! It's not your average cafe! To begin with, we’re actually a Non-Profit Organization.
We try to be all sorts of awesome by providing fair trade, organic, bird-friendly and rain forest certified coffee, and by providing other ethical and yummy treats and products! (Check out Our Menu, we think you'll be impressed!)
The money you spend at Studio.89 goes towards the functioning of our community hub.
Studio.89 is a free space for community events that also offers free workshops and resources as well as empowerment and entrepreneurship opportunities. We host regular board game nights, documentary nights, book clubs, live music nights, networking events, fundraisers for a myriad of causes, support groups for sexual assault survivors and much more. Sometimes fun, sometimes educational, sometimes both, we have something for everyone to enjoy! See our Calendar for upcoming events.
See we're what is technically called a social enterprise. This is how it works. Our youth led non-profit organization YTGA has been empowering and mobilizing young people for social justice through campaigns, workshops and the arts since 2006. Through the cafe business we are able to run much more programming for many more young people! That's right, you spend money on good ethical and healthy stuff and it goes towards more good community stuff!
