  The rustic wooden interior of San Francisco’s Outerlands is as much of a draw to the celebrated Outer Sunset eatery as its famous loaves of bread, which are baked in-house, daily.    This originally appeared in Restaurant We Love: Outerlands in San Francisco.

  A coffee kiosk in Torquay, Australia, is clad in reclaimed Cor-Ten steel sheet piles to reference the local beachside landscape and culture. Local architect Tony Hobba designed the structure, which looks modern, to feels like it's been part of the coastline for years, and used his materials wisely (the metal used in the envelope was used as temporary formwork during the 2010 floods in Victoria).    This originally appeared in Coffee Break: Third Wave Kiosk.

Movable walls in the bar area open to a lively square where live bands frequently perform.    This originally appeared in Roost Restaurant in Greenville, South Carolina.

  Located in the Östermalm neighborhood of Stockholm, Cafe Foam channels "Spanish temperament with Scandinavian cool," according to its designers, local firm Note. Indeed, the interior features the prototypical Scandinavian blonde wood and spare detailing with splashes of magenta that evoke a more fiery feeling—an unexpected mashup as the latitudes (not to mention the design sensibilities) of Spain and Sweden are about as far flung as one can get in Europe.
