About us

Established in 2010

We founded Paper or Plastik Cafe in 2010 as a family: Anya & Yasha Michelson, a husband-and-wife design team, along with our daughter, Marina, a filmmaker and actor. Over the last 10 years, we have proudly extended our family to include a fantastic team of baristas, servers, cooks, and dishwashers, and a community of regular customers.

MIMODA STUDIO: Located Right Next Door

Our adjacent dance studio, Mimoda Studio can be viewed from the mezzanine level of the café. A creative space designed for adventurous artists, Mimoda is home to quality and original programming that is unique to LA. Formerly home to the renowned Dancers Studio, Mimoda is now home to rising dance companies, classical musicians, and performance artists.

Capable of transforming into a stage, a gallery, a gathering point or a rehearsal studio, Mimoda adapts to all works of art under the artistic direction of Yasha Michelson. The live calendar of weekly events programming can be seen on the Studio's event page. The Studio is also available for private events and rentals.
