Forever Rose Cafe
This 2D restaurant is totally black and white and it looks like beautifully drawn comic book, in fact the only pops of colour come from the food, cutlery and the roses (from the brand Forever Rose who offer the world's longest lasting roses). The items on offer range from fancy cakes, pastries and indulgent hot and cold beverages.

Watch them from the actual restaurant for free (you only pay for what you consume) or from the Owls hall, where you can pay a premium to interact with the owls, learn about them and touch them, under strict guidance from the handlers. The menu is varied from coffee to Acai bowls and they are currently in a soft launch phase.

Not so new, but a fun restaurant for all you self-named geeks out there. It may feel like you are walking into a comic book convention but instead you are met with pop culture decor and a menu with geeky names like Dark Knight Benny Brisket, Iron Man chicken burger and Dr. Strange onion rings. The kids will love it too as there are lots of Funko Pop figures around to look at and buy!
