The impressive range of Pantone colors lend themselves to all sorts of applications that go beyond just graphic design—they’re especially engaging when it comes to food. From smoothies to cookies, the iconic design system makes meals more fun, and it’s the driving force behind one pop-up restaurant. Returning for its second year, the Pantone Café has set up shop for the summer in Monaco. The eatery overlooks an idyllic seaside setting on the outdoor patio of the Grimaldi Forum cultural center.
Minimalist in decor but bold in its color accents, the café offers coffee, sandwiches, desserts, and refreshing drinks. Every menu item is assigned a corresponding hue and is named after its color or specific ingredient. A bright red drink is called Strawberry Ice and has a similarly-hued koozie that highlights its visual intensity. To produce some of its other treats, the Pantone Café collaborated with the French juicery Yumi who used ingredients like rosemary, carrots, and fennel in their creations.
The restaurant is currently open and will be running until September 9, 2016.
