In the Pink World of Holy Matcha!

Guys…I’ve found my new favorite place. Before I get too excited, hello everyone! Hope you are all doing well on this fine day! It’s the beginning of the week..a Monday..but it can still be a beautiful day! I am so so SO excited to share this little place with you. Holy Matcha is a cafe in North Park (San Diego) whose main ingredient used is, you guessed it, matcha! The way they decorated this cafe is absolutely perfect and is definitely a reason customers are drawn in. Its style was very inspiring to me, so I thought I’d share it on the blog! So let’s get right into the photos!

The front window has the Holy Matcha logo in white, and I am head over heels for the font and bold placement on the window. Nerdy graphic design major, I know, lol. But I do love it! Once inside, you see a huge wall covered in plants and plan wallpaper. It’s funny actually last year for my branding project, I took a very similar approach with palm tress and a pastel pink shade. Seeing this sort of style in action and done very well is super cool! As you can see on these shelves they sell various matcha inspired merchandise, like hats, books, and sweatshirts! I should’ve picked one up, they’re just so darn cute!!

As for food, their menu is very small, but I actually really like that about it. It’s similar to Pinkberry, where they have minimal, yet very unique options! One of my friends I was out with ended up trying one of the donuts, which were gluten free AND vegan! HOLY MATCHA!!! Not to mention they look absolutely delicious! I ended up ordering the matcha soft serve, which was matcha and charcoal flavored soft serve with coconut flakes on top. Some of my friends got the matcha horchata, matcha iced latte, rose lemonade, and the donut as mentioned above. Everything was delicious!! You can tell the cafe takes great pride in the tiny details, which is very clear in the “matcha and bae” on the plate and the gorgeous “you, me, matcha” neon sign. For me, I really appreciate small details like that, and it’s no doubt things that helped them gain popularity. Nowadays people adore anything they can take pictures of and post on social media, and that is the best marketing and advertising trick a company could ever use! Holy Matcha clearly understands that.

Let me know what you guys think of this place! If you take a trip to San Diego, I definitely recommend this place for great photos and a unique food experience. As I mentioned at the start of this post, it is in North Park of San Diego. Can’t wait to read your comments about this adorable pink place! xx

My boyfriend will pull me all the way across the country for this and I won’t even resist- it all looks so beautiful (: that pale pink was last year’s color and the plant green is this year’s, so they go really well together.
