A Spanish vegan café and bakery is enjoying a renaissance, the all-new Pumper healthy café having opened this year in the northwestern town of Pontevedra following a four year hiatus.
Expect fresh baguettes and sourdough to take away, as well as plant-based breakfast bowls, toasts, brunch and sweet treats to enjoy inside the 141 square metre café; the food and drink at Pumper looking as good as it tastes, nourishing body, soul and mind as it’s devoured.
Designed by local architecture and design studio Nan Arquitectos — the team behind neighbouring Misto Café Bar and Concept Habitat Studio — Pumper’s company philosophy is “to be sustainable, concerned with the environment and with a healthy product;” something that was taken into consideration when planning how the interior would look.
Upon acquiring the space, Nan Arquitectos’ first task was to expand and update the premises carrying out a contained intervention, preserving much of what was pre-existing, but carrying out a substantial and modern transformation. Using colour and texture on the walls, and swapping the lighting and furniture, a modern café was created — an organic and natural space from which to enjoy organic and healthy fare.
Cosy and charming, Pumper is a great pit stop for great coffee and tasty food, the ideal spot to fuel or refuel after a day pounding the streets around the old town of beautiful, historical Pontevedra.
