We’ve been on hiatus because of Joan’s big W-day and now that’s finally over, I can update with lots of new posts (ah I missed blogging).
A new coffee shop has opened at the Mid-Wilshire Vista Heights neighborhood called Paper or Plastik Cafe. It’s a delight to know that this stretch of Pico got another neighborhood gem! This coffee shop is also a front for a ballet studio and an upstair boutique.
The warehouse interior does make the place feel a bit cold (didn’t feel like LA for some reason). There’s a florist shop upstairs at the loft, i wish there were more green downstairs as well.
I can see this coffee shop being the new community coffee shop, as it has a nice mixed crowd (students, families, young/old couple, etc.). I hanged out here for a few times already, I love the hint of ballet music from the other side of the wall, and the little glimpse of the dancers whenever the door is open. It’s a chill space to hang out, though i wished there’re more touch of warmth and quirks to soften the industrial feeling.
