Yo, Mr White! Let’s Brew!

Friday, July 31, 2015

Themed coffee shops are nothing new – across the world there are cafes themed around all sorts of different things, from hit movies such as Titanic and the Star Wars trilogy to naturism, cats and futuristic robots.

However, March of this year saw the first ever coffee shop dedicated to the award-winning television show Breaking Bad – perhaps not the most suitable suggestion for a novelty coffee shop!

The novelty cafe, which is called Walter’s Coffee Roastery, opened in Istanbul, and was the result of a successful crowdfunding campaign on the website Kickstarter.   

But what can visitors to the cafe expect when they visit the shop?

Well, a drinking and dining experience like no other, that’s for sure!


According to the proprietor of Walter’s Coffee Roastery, Deniz Kosan, the experience will wholly be inspired by the show, and will be everything you could possibly hope for from the ‘world’s first coffee superlab’.

For example, the staff at the coffee shop wear bright yellow jumpsuits and gasmasks, just like those work by Walter White and Jesse Pinkman when they cook meth in Gus’s superlab.

What’s more, a periodic table adorns the wall; all the coffee is brewed using “cooking” machines, just like those used in the series; you drink with beakers instead of mugs; and water, instead of being boiled in the convention manner, is boiled using a Bunsen burner.

Punters feeling peckish can also tuck into pancakes (the favoured breakfast of the White family, along with bacon strips) as well as muffins and cakes sprinkled with blue-coloured crystals, just like the signature methamphetamine that Walter and his cohort Jesse cook up in their lab.

Over to you

What do you think about this new themed coffee shop?

Would you swing by for a cuppa if you were visiting Istanbul?

Have you been to any other themed coffee shops?

Are there any more themed coffee shops that you’d like to see?
