This post is specially for all coffee lovers! If you enjoy going to cafes and relaxing, why not try these places where the most creative latte art can be found. And it's definitely unlike anything you've ever seen before, not just in 2D (flat coffee art) but now in 3D (using milk froth to create art popping out of the coffee) as well. This will make exciting instagram posts, or be the highlight of your journey. So if you're a coffee enthusiast, check these places out!

If you have time and want to experience something different, this is the perfect place to go. *Your orders may take some time to arrive, so please keep that in mind if you decide to go.
