You Can Drink Coffee Inside a Giant Rolleiflex Camera. For REAL!

I really think people are getting more and more creative these days because even a cafe can took the shape and form of a camera. At first, we thought it was merely a sculpture but then we were amazed when we found out that it is actually a cafe. Like what we said, you can sip on your coffee and munch on yummy baked goodies while in it. That would be so much fun but there is more to it than that.

Dreamy Camera Cafe is in Seoul, South Korea. Obviously, the owner is a camera and photography lover. The design of the structure mimics that of a vintage camera called Rolleiflex. Inside the cafe, different vintage cameras are displayed which is a lovely and interesting sight while you sip on your coffee. The cafe is owned by Park Sung-hwan and wife Kwak Myung-hee. Their aim was to build a place where people can build their dreams and share their stories. They take photos of the customers and let them write their dreams on the photos. These pictures are seen all over the interior of the cafe.

The cafe attracts many visitors because of its unique design. But the owners don’t just want the costumers to come because of the camera shaped structure. They want them to dream and share their stories while inside the cafe.

I like the idea of posting the photos of customers inside the cafe. You can see it on the columns and the floor beam for the second floor. Indeed, it kept the dreams and stories of its guests!

Another interesting thing is that every table has a menu in a photo album, colored pencils and a tissue container shaped like a camera film roll.

I will not wonder if this cafe will turn into a tourist spot in the near future because the way I see it, people from around the globe will really include this place in their bucket list of places to visit in Korea. Just amazing. You will really get a different kind of experience while inside the cafe especially when you see the pictures all around the interior. It will make you think that the place isn’t just for coffee. It is for your dreams, it is for dreaming and it is for dreamers.
