hello world!

When planning for the exterior of the r+ cafe | grains, I was asked why we chose rice.

There are several reasons. First, it is a good way to preserve the horizontal aspect of the land. Secondly, we wanted a plant that is both aesthetically pleasing and a crop that we can harvest. Thirdly, we want visitors to r+ cafe | grains to gain an appreciation of rice, by seeing it grown in situ, supporting the field to table movement.

While a normal cafe may use an ornamental plant, we want a cafe that carries the r+ brand to showcase our values. We endeavour to work in harmony with the environment and offer our guests the most authentic experience. This is the r+ difference.
