The poop cafe theme isn’t new. In Asia, poop-themed restaurants are actually very popular. Modern Toilet opened in Taiwan in 2004 and has been inspiring similar restaurants since. The Poop Café in Toronto will be the first bathroom-themed place in North America.
So what exactly is a poop café? Well, the one opening in Toronto will serve desserts. That means you can anticipate chocolate swirl ice cream that resembles your favourite emoji.
It’s typical of poop restaurants to serve their food in tiny toilets, and this restaurant will continue that tradition. We honestly don’t know if we should say aww, or be grossed out. Plus the chairs in the restaurant are also full size toilets. Don’t worry, they’re new. (We wonder what the bathroom will look like…)
The restaurant-to-be is owned by Lien Nguyen, who fell in love with poop cafes while in Asia. She says that she’s “trying to make poop cute” with her themed establishment–especially since poop is inappropriate dinner conversation.
The artwork on the walls is pretty adorable too…
The Poop Café will open its doors at 706 Bloor St. West in mid-August, so we’ll have to wait a bit more to go. But it may be worth the wait–where else would you go to test your date’s sense of humour?
