Heather
and Alex Stephen took the road less travelled to wind up at small business ownership. The couple—she’s a former World Cup bobsleigh competitor from Edmonton, he’s a St. FX basketball alumnus—made the move from Toronto to Lower Sackville three years ago seeking a more subdued, outdoorsy life, and now they’re gearing up to open Apartment 3 Espresso Bar (833 Sackville Drive).

“Every time I’m travelling I’m always checking out the local coffee shop, specifically the third wave scene,” says Heather . “We just noticed there weren’t any third wave coffee shops near Sackville. If you wanted to socialize or have a meeting you had to leave, go to Bedford or go downtown.”

After spending the last few years hunting for the perfect spot, the Stephens are working to create a comfortable, minimalist, bright space to enjoy great coffee, baked goods and art, with the goal of an early April opening. “Apartment 3 was a place we lived in Toronto, an old row house. We always had tons of people over for great coffee, great food and great discussions,” says Alex. “It was just a really great space. So we thought, why not try to recreate that?”
