A Gold Coast cafe is offering a cute way for lovelorn coffee fans to meet other latte-sipping singles with the help of pen, paper, and Instagram.
Singletons who visit All-Time Coffee Co. are being invited to leave their Instagram handle on a pad at the counter which is seen by hundreds of customers every day.
‘Basically you write down your Instagram, you take a photo of everyone else's Instagram handles on the paper and then you stalk them,’ explains Elle Howard, the coffee shop’s owner.
So far over 25 people have left their Instagram usernames and while Elle doesn’t know if any dates have come from it, she told ABC News that it’s created a cute community.
‘Everyone comes in and reads it and has a little laugh … It's better than using Tinder or an application just for dating.’
Ms Howard, who should probably become a social scientist, also created a “Netflix list” where people can write down their recommendations for new shows to watch.
‘Everyone is looking for something new to watch on Netflix. That's what you do at night isn't it?’
Recovering caffeine-addict and serial bruncher Eliza Murray feels most at home typing away in a cozy cafe with her re-mortgaged avocado toast nearby. When she isn't reporting on the latest Instagram-shattering glittery food trends, she can be found experimenting with new gin garnishes (hello strawberries!) or biting into an entire wheel of brie (no shame).
