Pastel Rita is one of those whimsical havens that brought a fresh take to Mile End’s café culture with creative flair. Under the helm of Jocelyn Despres, Elise Bertrand, and Jean-Vivier Lévêque, the café’s got a Wes Anderson-esque charm that pairs well with its menu crafted in collaboration with local eateries like Moccione and Mousso, as well as—of course—finely crafted coffee. Delectable bites? Check. Natural wines? Double check. It's got everything you need, and it does it with an effortless swagger.
