For lovers of paranormal life and related things, the Death Cafe is an ideal place to go chill off after a long day.

Just like every other cafe, the Death Cafe carters for all edibles but one thing that spices it up, is death. The Cafe is built to bring alive the presence of death among it’s customers, the purpose of the cafe is to educate people on death in a way it will appear fun and more adventurous.

Customers come in, have a coffee or any preferable beverage, with a skeleton shaped cookies, interact on death, experience some part of it like sleeping inside a coffin.

A Death Cafe is a scheduled non-profit get-together called “social franchises” by the organizers for the purpose of talking about death over food and drink, usually tea and cake.

The goal of these nonprofit groups is to educate and help others become more familiar with the end of life. The idea originates with the Swiss sociologist and anthropologist Bernard Crettaz, who organized the first café mortel in 2004.

They have since been held in several countries, beginning with France and the United Kingdom.
