See the World
“Come to chill, change the world, or both!” This is the motto of café and wine bar Pastel Rita in Montréal (well, they say it in French). The space, the brainchild of Gabriel Malenfant and Véronique Orban de Xivry, also houses an artist workshop and a boutique. Local architecture firm Appareil Architecture was hired for the project, and the resulting color-blocked walls and furnishings make for some serious eye candy. The custom lighting fixtures, by Montréal studio Botté, were all made from recycled parts. The café serves up coffee and drinks, sandwiches, creative entrées, and brunch amid this colorful decor.
