As my friends and family may have noticed I love to visit new coffee shops. I'm a huge fan of coffee shop design. I have made it one of my missions in life to find the best and take hundreds of pictures and drive everyone crazy when they are out with me! So now you know my dirty little coffee stained secret, I thought I would share with you some of the ones I've stopped by. I love unique and quirky places with an industrial feel to them. The more reclaimed wood and metal the better. Industrial design and great cappuccino's in one place.
One of my favourites Art Is In bakery in Ottawa. Great giant chalkboards, concrete floors. Warehouse style.
Reclaimed wood wall. Great use of old pallets. Recycle and re-use. Found at Equator Coffee in Almonte.
Cast iron base with aged wood top at Cafe Morala in the Glebe.
Bridgehead Roastery brick, steel and concrete space with perfect industrial seating.
Dark Horse Espresso on Queen Street in Toronto. Pipes, distressed wood, steel and insulator style lighting. Character by the bucket!
Chalkboard and patina aged gilt frame, barn board at Breadbyus in Hintonburg.
The Ministry of Coffee on Elgin,downtown Ottawa has wood cladding countertops,industrial stools and diy bench with milk crates and planks.
So finally if you are like me ( obsessed!) with the decor of coffee shops,restaurants,stores,movies and so on why not take a second look or a photo or ten and let them inspire your home. Check in next time for a quick project I did based on inspiration from one of these cool.coffee shops. . . . . . . .
