There's a Brand New Queer/BIPOC-Run Cafe in Southgate Centre



More than ever in 2020, there needs to be safe spaces for the queer and BIPOC community. 

And that definitely includes cute adorable coffee shops!

Intent Coffee at Southgate Centre in YEG is an awesome new BIPOC-owned hangout spot with delicious coffee and treats. And it’s all been started during the pandemic by queer Filipino couple Mavi Az Atolentino and Reika Herradura.

They have a lovely staff made up of queer and BIPOC people, who all make the atmosphere welcoming and wonderful for everyone. 


“Intent Coffee offers locally baked goods and coffee farmed by Indigenous women in the Philippines.”
