Cafe Ipe

Encinitas, California

The 10- by 10-foot mosaic The Surfing Madonna, depicting the Virgin of Guadalupe carving a wave, was created in 2011 by artist Mark Patterson, who installed it guerrilla-style under a railroad bridge. City officials ordered it removed, but Cafe Ipé rescued the work. You can pay homage to it on the cafe patio.
