The pop-up cafe called The Rat Cafe gives diners the opportunity to have their breakfast with a few of the city’s friendliest rodents for 50 bucks.

Located in one of San Francisco’s tourist attractions, The Dungeon, The Rat Cafe brings to life the city’s experience of the 20th Century bubonic or “Black Death” Plague. “[The Rat Cafe] lets guests actually get a chance to get up close and personal with rats, of course plague-free rats,” The Dungeon’s Matthew Gunther explains to NDTV


Surprisingly, many visitors have taken a liking to the rat-themed cafe that tickets for the breakfast sessions on July 1 and 8 have been sold out!

These sessions allow people to interact with 6 to 8 rats while having their coffee and pastries.

With a turnout like this, you can definitely expect more breakfast sessions in the future!
