I have a favourite coffee place in Mission, BC. The Penny is an amazing cafe that gives back to its community by supporting an outreach program that offers comfort, relationships, support and food to those in need. (In their words from their site.)
Walking inside, it seems like any other cafe. Friendly staff, neighbours who greet one another, and plenty of comfy places to sit.
But there’s something very special about supporting a neighbourhood space that is using its profits to better the situations of those in need.
This last Christmas while there, a neighbourhood Santa stopped in to greet everyone and offer candy canes. He’s been doing this for 33 years!
Everyone in the cafe was thrilled.
I definitely recommend this place if you are ever in Mission. The coffee is great, and they very often have gluten-free treats!
For a theme song, I thought this fit well.
