Cafe Con Leche Nord Shows Off Sugar Skull Details, Tiled Bar, and Stark White Accents

Get a first look inside the New Center cafe.

Cafe Con Leche Nord is located across from the Fisher Building at 2990 West Grand Boulevard in New Center. From the early renderings with orange blue and yellow drop-ceiling tiles, the cafe's design has evolved to a more muted white and blue palette. Touches like a sugar skull pillow on the shop's white couch draw on the earlier color scheme.

Countertops are finished with reclaimed wood, while the eye-catching mosaic below the espresso machine features custom-made tiles designed by local artist Itchel Arriga. A long bar allows for plenty of countertop seating as well as tables and benches. During warmer weather, the cafe windows can slide open to create a bistro feel. Likewise, the cafe may take advantage of the neighboring park where customers can eventually take their coffee, pastries, and other items outdoors.
