Nothing starts the day off better than a good cup of joe, and where better to get your caffeine hit than at Andy’s Café.

Who wouldn’t want a fantasy-themed coffee machine? To meet the demand, Anthony Wilson has built an adorable little fellow named Vay the coffee dragon. Vay is packed full of character, thanks to a pair of big eyes and the positioning of his body. His fistful of coffee beans is the essence of hospitality. This is in contrast to the hand tucked behind his back, seemingly saying, “what are you waiting for?

It’ll give you scales on your chest!
This wonderfully detailed coffee stand by LEGO 7 does not have a single brick out of place — from the hanging glasses rack to the roasting machine in back to those delicious pastries on display. Even the custom stickers and the logo on the apron of the baristas are a perfect choice.
