A Breaking Bad-Themed Coffee Shop Has Opened in Istanbul

Breaking Bad

may be over, but that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy all the things inspired by the show. One spectacular example is Walter’s Coffee Roastery, a new cafe that opened in March in Moda, Kadikoy, Istanbul. Remember Gale's coffee apparatus? This restaurant is basically the real life spin-off of that scene. Visitors can feel like they're drinking the results of an illegal science project. 

Founder Deniz Kosan decided he wanted to create a coffee shop that took things in a new direction. His Heisenberg-looking cousin inspired him to base the shop on his favorite television show.

For legal reasons, this coffee shop is technically just a chemical lab-themed spot. There's no direct mention of Breaking Bad, and the show's logo isn't used, but you can still spot direct references, like yellow jumpsuits and a giant periodic table on the wall.
