UK's first pay-as-you-go cafe opens in east London.

 

Charging 3p a minute just to be there! (but tea, biscuits and WiFi are free)

 

  • Cafe Ziferblat offers customers all-you-can-eat biscuits and endless tea
  • It charges for time spent, and customers must prepare their own coffee
  • They must even wash up their own dishes

It's a cafe that offers all-you-can-eat biscuits, endless cups of tea and unlimited WiFi.

 

The only catch? You have to pay for your stay. The UK’s first pay-per-minute cafe Ziferblat, which means clock face in Russian, charges customers 3p for every minute they spend inside.

 

When guests arrive at the East London cafe they take a clock from the cupboard and keep it with them until they leave.

 

They then make their own coffee or prepare food – and sometimes even wash their own dishes.

It will depend on how many people he gets through the door. It says unlimited tea, biscuits and wifi, but it also refers to the coffee machine. I wonder if coffee is free? Then he says the visitors or staff can prepare food, but I doubt if that is free.

 

His business rates and staff will cost a lot, and each visitor who sticks to the free stuff will generate just £1.80 per hour. If he gets table blocking for hours by people who stick to the free stuff and are there to keep warm he could have a problem.

And who among us wouldn't ALSO ensure that we consumed (at least) £1.80's worth of freebies per hour?! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx :sad:
