Check Out the Modern Meets Old School Design of This New Cafe in Montreal

Restaurant Porn is a column of daydreams presented as a means to introduce BC diners and designers to concepts, looks, and fully-formed ideas that they might draw an inkling of inspiration from.

Located on the corner of Saint-Urbain and Saint-Antoine, the bright, triangular space is a collaborative work between one of the cafe’s founders and local interior design and architecture shop, La Firme.
