What do you like to do with your time?
Maybe go for coffee with friends, try a new restaurant, or go and see a film? That’s your third place. A special place that exists alongside your home and your work life, acting as the core of community life.
Whilst researching my dissertation project on consumer motivation for choosing a coffee shop, I came across this theory and it resonated with me instantly. What we’d define as a third place is unique to all of us and our motives for choosing the places we hang out are very different – often changing to fit our needs at the time.
With this in mind, I decided to combine my love of dining and cafe culture with the concept of the third place to review different spots around Brighton, Hove and Sussex.
The Third Place doesn’t contain food reviews in the traditional sense of most food blogs – mostly because I feel like I’m certainly not enough of an expert to do that! It’s about what might make something a third place. So here, you’ll find everything from coffee shops, brunch spots and Brighton restaurants, to pop-ups, fast food, food festivals and travel destinations.
