Upon entering the cafe, you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported into the world of Alice In Wonderland as even the windows and doors are tilted.

That said, the floors are perfectly level, so you won’t have to be worried about trying to balance your cup of coffee on an off-kilter table.

The toilet in the cafe is also slanted to one side, but if you fear that you may not be able to do your business in peace, head to the regular toilet on the first floor of the cafe.


Spacious and vast premise
