Canadians who are thinking of starting or opening a coffee shop can learn from this coffee chain in Denmark that is truly unique. Called the Laundromat Cafe, it is truly many many things combined into one. A laundromat, a cafe, a bookstore.
“It combines the warm, sophisticated feel of a diner-cafe with the functionality of a laundromat. So while doing their laundry, diners can read, have a snack, surf the web, or enjoy a cup of Laundromat Cafe’s famous brewed coffee. Besides its washing machines, the Laundromat Cafe is famous for its generous, tasty brunches, artistic decor (the spectrum-colored bookshelves have their own following), and its family-friendly feel, with books, toys, and menu items for kids.”
