Customers must take an alarm clock from a cupboard upon arrival, note the time, and then keep it with them until they leave.

The unusual pricing strategy at Ziferblat (“everything is free, except the time you spend there”) has proven popular in Russia and now it has expanded its reach to the trendy London district of Shoreditch, said Telegraph.

A Russian café that charges customers according to how long they stay – but offers unlimited free tea and biscuits – has opened its first UK branch.

 

Customers must take an alarm clock from a cupboard upon arrival, note the time, and then keep it with them until they leave. A flat fee of three pence per minute means that an hour-long stay will set you back just £1.80 – no matter how many cups of Earl Grey and custard creams you manage to tuck away. There is no minimum time, either, meaning a hastily drunk coffee can be had for mere pennies.

Guest must serve themselves using a coffee machine and kettles. Other “complimentary” snacks, including fruit and vegetables, can be prepared in the kitchen.
