Japan's Ogori Cafe is a Surprise Every Time

Perhaps best known as a country where anything and everything goes, it is a well known fact that some of the craziest business ideas, cafes, clothes and building designs come out of Japan and the recently opened Ogori Cafe is no exception.

The premise of the Ogori Cafe is that you go in and place your order, but receive whatever the patron before you ordered, while your order goes to the person behind you in line.

It is literally a surprise every time that you visit the Ogori Cafe, whether you will receive an iced coffee, or an appetizer spread, an orange juice, or a brownie.

I don’t personally understand the concept myself, but it would be fun to try the Ogori Cafe out once. I imagine it could get tiring if you frequented the place ordering lunch, but walking out with only a perrier or an energy drink.
