Introducing Istanbul's Breaking Bad inspired coffee shop . . . Deniz Kosan opened Walter’s Coffee Roastery the world’s first Coffee Super Lab in Moda, Kadikoy, Istanbul on March 29 2015.

The chemical themed cafe was formerly named “Heisenberg Coffee and Roasting. Following a succesful Kickstarter campaign, the coffee shop was given a makeover as an unnoffical tribute.

A year ago swiss social media phenomenon @Zukkihund had posted an infographic which stated that the fun factor of visiting IKEA drops dramatically when you turn 9 and you are no longer allowed to enter the ballpit in the Småland play area.
