Internet Cafe Two Serves Coffee With a Shot of Irony

Part coffee shop, part art installation, the new Oak Cliff cafe is a 300-square-foot riddle wrapped in lighthearted sarcasm and millennial pink.

For those who take their coffee with “hipster milk” and a healthy dose of irony, consider placing your next order at Internet Cafe Two. (Don’t worry yourself about Internet Cafe One; it never existed.) Part coffee shop, part art installation, the new Oak Cliff cafe by Paul and Megan Wilkes (co-owner of Emporium Pies) is a 300-square-foot riddle wrapped in lighthearted sarcasm and millennial pink.

It’s decorated with floppy disks, tongue-in-cheek signage by Dallas artist Brennen Bechtol, and a mural by Dallas-based Matthew Brinston, and it has a landline telephone mounted in the bathroom. Want a snack? Your choices are boxes of Kellogg’s cereal or “sugar rectangles,” homemade Pop-Tarts with Emporium Pies crust. Internet Cafe Two is in on its own joke, and—as it turns out—serves some pretty decent coffee, too.
