Living in Portland, OR, you’re exposed to a wide variety of cafe styles. There are the student cafes, where coffee is dirt cheap and stressed 20-somethings spend hours camping out on their laptops. Then, there are the bleeding edge micro roasters who spin ironic 80’s pop music on a record player and serve their pour-over brew in mason jars. After a couple of years here, you just come to assume you’ve seen it all. So when I saw the video below about Japan’s rabbit cafes, I was hopping with jealousy!
While rabbit cafes have popped up all over Japan – 12 or so opened in the last year alone! – it will be a bit longer, I think, before people scurry to replicate Japan’s reptile cafe experience.
