Experience: Richmond's Maple & Pine
After a late check-in to our hotel we made our first stop in Richmond to Maple & Pine for Saturday brunch. We got there as the flowers were arriving for an afternoon wedding and walked in to the aromatics of beautiful bouquets and fried potatoes (could anything be more perfect on a Saturday morning!?).
After ordering our food and beverages we sat back and took in the space. I would die to own the winding benches that create the fluid seating. The marble with subtle pink accents gives the space an open and airy feel, while funky artwork (like the cat playing with the octopus) keeps it playful. The restaurant, located within the Quirk Hotel, is also home to a beautiful gallery and curio shop carrying items that evoke that clean, feminine, and artsy vibes. Part of the whole experience includes a coffee bar at the front of the space with bistro tables interspersed with vintage looking tufted couches and chairs. If you're heading to Richmond definitely suggest this one-stop-spot as your starting point for a weekend of exploration!
