— February 1, 2014 — Lifestyle
Caffeine plays a key role in the day to day lives of so many people, which is why coffee shops can be found on just about every street corner. In such a competitive industry it's important for businesses to have some kind of creative edge over the competition. These conceptual cafes aim to improve the coffee shop experience for consumers in hopes that it will keep them coming back for more.

The Ra.a.g.f cafe in Japan allows coffee lovers to cozy up to bunnies while enjoying their drinks. Animal lovers are bound to get a kick out of that. The Truth cafe in Cape Town, South Africa is steampunk-themed, offering customers a cafe experience unlike any other. This shop definitely appeals to a very specific crowd.

These imaginative coffee shop ideas will inspire small business owners to approach this industry in a different way.
