Café Design Identity

As a fan of both cafés  and design, I pay attention to both aspects before i go visit a café.

These are some cafés with great design + branding identity i like. Although i have only visited la distributrice in montreal,  i have plans to visit the rest of the cafés  in the future.

Streamer Coffee Company

My cafe hop continues! This time I visited the renowned coffee shop, Streamer Coffee Company. 

The barista and founder of Streamer, Hiroshi Sawada was 2008's Free Pour Latte Art champion. His coffee was indeed great! I ordered this delectable mocha served by their finest barista. The location I went to was the one in Harajuku, but Streamer has two other locations in Shibuya and Osaka.

this 3 story cafe is cool yet cozy. one thing is there aren't too many seats but a great place to chat with friends or enjoy the atmosphere. definitely a must go to cafe in Japan!

Wine Connection, Bangkok

I made a short stop in Bangkok for my summer vacation and went to this really nice restaurant.
The wine bar/bistro branches are segregated around the heart of the city and this very one is around the
Sukhumvit area, at Phrom Phong station.


It has spacious and modern decor plus great selections of wine, coffee and tapas. I definitely recommend a
visit if you're in Bangkok!

DIY rustic box

I'm a huge fan of reclaimed wood items. I've been longing to make a DIY project for a while now but let's face it, I'm no carpenter! The short cut and cheat for me is to use acrylic paint to replicate the rustic look. Let's take a look at some steps to get the DIY reclaimed wood replica!

These are some items I started with.

Mix the base color you'd like. For this specific box, I chose ash baby blue.

Color the top coat. They can either be smooth or textured, up to you!

Here's the important step. Use tape to block out some areas and apply the darker pigments to add in the rustic look.

And Voila! They're done!

fuglen tokyo

Honestly, I think I have found the best cafe in Tokyo.

Fuglen Tokyo, located in Shibuya, is a branch of the Oslo-based cafe/bar.
Staying true to Nordic design, Fuglen is cool and modern yet warm at the same time.

Taken up on Good Coffee's advice, I couldn't resist paying a visit when I happened to be in the Shibuya area.

Fuglen's mocha was smooth and mildly sweet from the perfect steam milk. 

Whether you're a coffee nut like me or an alcohol lover, you'll definitely be entranced with Fuglen. Don't forget to swing by when you're in Shibuya. Highly recommended!

Little Nap Cafe

This week, I hopped another gem of a cafe in the middle Tokyo. 

Little Nap Coffee Stand serves great tasting espresso in a cool + hip atmosphere.
Located in the hidden alley nearby Yoyogi park, Little nap offers authentic latte
I have been searching for!

I ordered a latte which was carefully crafted by Little nap's barista while my friends
tried their lemonades, served in Mason Jars. 


Definitely recommended and will make a comeback here soon!
