We get cat cafes, but this rat cafe goes too far
Enjoy the scurrying rats with your coffee.
With the exception of the Pixar film Ratatouille, rats and dining never go together. Never.
But a San Francisco tourist attraction is featuring the rodents at a pop-up cafe and charging people money to experience the potential health code violation.
For $50 (that includes admission to the rest of the show) cafe-goers can sip coffee while surrounded by rats. It’s supposed to be an intentionally confusing experience: sit in a nice bistro-style eatery with a Barbary Coast theme with rats scurrying around.
It’s an all-you can-drink coffee buffet, so no food can be snatched by hungry rats. But still.
The rats are all reportedly up for adoption through the Bay Area nonprofit Rattie Ratz, a group that rescues and rehabilitates rats. So if you bond with a cafe rat you can bring him or her home. The ultimate souvenir.
