I love going to new places and checking out the local café scene. Last weekend was no different as I went out for Sunday morning brunch to Kitchen by Mike.
Let me begin by saying that the interior of Kitchen by Mike was what impressed me the most. I love the old warehouse, rustic feel with a slight modern twist. The walls were a white washed brick decorated with pot plants and modern hanging lights. The benches and shelves were decorated with mason jars with various succulents and other plants. Water was served in old glass milk bottles, the cutlery jar was wrapped in vintage paper and even the menus were tea stained to give off an old, well worn vibe.
Kitchen by Mike aims ‘to strip down traditional restaurant dining’ which is demonstrated through their canteen style ordering system. Remove the reservations and the waiters, Kitchen by Mike is about watching the food being prepared, cooked and presented, letting your eyes also play a key part in what you choose to eat.
Not even joking, this is the bathroom. I was in bathroom heaven!! Interior porn to the max.
Another amazing aspect to Kitchen by Mike is the adjoining open planned store Koskela. Koskela and Kitchen by Mike share the same warehouse space, so even if you weren’t hungry I would definitely recommend hitting up Koskela for some cool, innovate design ideas. If only I was wealthier my house would be a mirror copy of Koskela. Sigh.
