Paper or Plastik Cafe is set to soft-open this Saturday on Pico at Fairfax, with a grand-opening planned for September 10th. The design-oriented space, which a manager tells us is “mindbendingly gorgeous,” comes attached to Mimoda Theater, long operated by the cafe’s co-owners, Anya and Yasha Michelson. What will you find inside?
P or P Cafe promises to stress an appreciation for the arts and serve as a showcase for the family’s Anyash Gruppa design group, which blends Anya’s original dress designs with a collection of far-flung antiques and curios like Uzbek blankets and hand-carved marionettes.
Coffee from Intelligentsia and Ecco Caffe is being hand-prepared to attract local artists to this gathering point. In addition to the high-grade beans, the crew will also serve sandwiches and salads from HeirloomLA, plus sweet nibbles from Hotcakes, Sweets for the Soul, Cake Monkey, and other odds and ends like juices and artisan sodas. Check out the menu online and follow Paper & Plastik on Twitter as the grand-opening date draws near.
Paper or Plastik soft-opens Saturday at 6:00 A.M. 5772 W. Pico Blvd. Mid-City. 323-935-0268
