Located in Tokyo, the cafe has been featured on television and online. Recently, website Sirabee visited the cafe, which has been only opened for very limited dates (sadly, this isn’t a daily thing...yet).

But the days it was opened, the Macho Cafe drew quite a line.

Food and drink are on the expensive side, but if you order a can of beer, your macho waiter will pour it and then crush the can. This pancake meal (which, in Japanese, has a pun on the word “muscle”) is 1,620 yen (US$13.50), which is a lot fir what you get. But the price does include posing:

For the equivalent of $27, you can also order the “Wall of Meat.”

No, they don’t put protein powder in your coffee, but they’re are promoting it on their t-shirts. The macho cafe’s limited-time only runs are over for now. Be sure to hit the gym, while waiting for their next.
