Energy café

Post by Stardust on Fri 06 Jan 2017, 06:03

I was intrigued by this concept, but disappointed to see that it was set in place by Nissan for three days only in December, too late to go see how well it was working.

Not sure I'd be able to drink coffee while e.g. pedalling to create energy, but maybe you have to toil first then get the reward.

Is the cafe still operating Stardust? or was it just a pop-up thing for the 3 days?  Great idea, but somehow I dont think its one that would last.  A one-off novelty.

That's the exact term, Whiskers, it was a three-day pop-up. I suppose it's mostly publicity for Nissan, but at least it might give others the idea to start up such a café on a more permanent basis.

Cat/rabbit cafés are springing up here and there (though mostly in Japan), so why not?

Still, I'd rather cuddle a rabbit than pedal for my coffee.
