We don't show you many restaurants, but when there's a café as cute as this one in Australia, it's not something you want to miss. I love so much here that I'm filing this one away in my brain under "dream kitchen."
The doubled-up pendent
Look at this! Either of these pendants would be cute, but together, they're magic!
This inlaid wood is gorgeous and I especially love that it puts the focus on the front of the counters as if they're works of art. Add to that the unexpected green toe kick and the metallic edge (which I suspect is for durability, but it still looks amazing to me), and it all adds up to the most statement-y counter I've ever seen.
This is a design trick where something is repeated in different ways throughout a space to make it cohesive. This cafe does it so well with shape. See how the floorboards, the wall panels (is that felt?) are similar rectangles and the countertop design and pendant cages are graphic triangles? It's not too matchy and obvious, but it does make the whole space feel like it works together, even when the elements are slightly different.
I love contrasting ceilings and this space does it right. The ceiling is high enough that the black doesn't close everything up, but instead just makes it feel warmer. It's a thoughtful detail that could have so easily been left off, but it really adds an extra layer to room, maybe without many people even realizing it's there.
