So I am helping set up a takeaway coffee business towards the end of the year, and am looking for some design inspiration for the build-out.

I have had the luck to walk around a few great coffee cities in my time and wandered past some amazing tiny cafes without the foresight to note them down. Wondering if anyone on here has some exceptional tiny coffee spaces (coffee bars, pop-up cafes, coffee vans, etc) that they can share.

My favourite find so far is Caffe del Popolo ( ... perimental), a 15sqm espresso bar in Argentina

Here's one in Montreal, pre-Covid. Hardly more than a mop & pail closet but was high-traffic and profitable. I don't know if this location still exists but they do have another great Montreal location.
