95 Innovative Cafe Concepts

From Eclectic Dutch Coffee Bars to Canine-Centered Coffee Shops

— September 15, 2015 — Business
These innovative cafe concepts demonstrate that consumers are eager to get their daily caffeine fix in unique and creative ways. With so many coffee bars competing for the same clientele, many coffee shops have sought innovative ways to draw in new customers.

Animal-themed coffee bars are one cafe concept that has gradually risen in popularity over the years. These unique coffee bars allow animal lovers to spend some quality time with cats, dogs and other animals without the responsibility of purchasing a pet of their own. These animal-inspired coffee shops include pop-up cat cafes, avian coffee bars and canine-centered coffee outposts.

Other coffee shops have tried to stand out by catering to socially conscious consumers. These cafes set themselves apart from name-brand coffee chains by supporting the local community in different ways. Some of these ethical cafe concepts include victim-supporting coffee shops, social enterprise cafes and homeless-helping coffee bars.
