Mocktails (Almost) Too Pretty to Drink

This Creative Capital cafe pours sparkling beverages that double as drinkable art


Grapefruit. Minty Passion Fruit. Peachy Strawberry. These are just some of the flavors you can order in the form of sparkling bevvies from R Space, the trendy retail shop and dessert cafe nestled above Capriccio in Providence. The downtown patisserie is the living portfolio of freelance interior architect and RISD student Xiaohai Zhou, whose flair for functional architecture can be seen in the ultra-modern, minimal setting, the perfect backdrop to let their colorful sweets and sips shine. Dip your spoon into inventive mousse-based desserts, try out handcrafted tea beverages, and say cheers with these fruity, fizzy mocktails – after snapping an Insta-worthy shot, of course.
