The 3rd and One By The Water Cafe Open Mon -Fri- 8 am - 4 pm, Sat & Sun 8 am - 2 pm
Welcome to The 3rd's community and co-working space on the lakefront in downtown Columbia. The space is open to the public to work, connect, commune, or collaborate. Grab a coffee or delectable pastry from the Little Café, make yourself comfortable, and get to work!
When you open the door, the smell of fresh coffee draws you in, but you decide on a bottle of fresh-pressed juice. The café features coffee and tea from local, black-owned producers, breakfast muffins, a variety of bread, and overnight oats. Have you got a craving for something more? No problem! You can grab a salad, soup, or a tasty wrap--all prepared in-, house by The 3rd's talented chef. Or, you can order a made-to-order hot breakfast or lunch. The little café retail market features products from 3rd members, so be sure to stop by on your way to the co-work space.
The sound of spirited brainstorming and laughter draws you in. Meet a friend to catch up or schedule a quick meeting with a colleague. Enjoy breakfast, grab and salad from the café, or order a full lunch prepared by chef Jamila. You might want to grab a dessert for later from Applecore Bakery, which is member-owned and family-operated.
