Spooky-sexy or crazy-creepy? Maybe a bit of both - Otherwise Cafe sure seems like one otherworldly venue.
Faceless bridal mannequins. Black-&-white wedding portraits. Vintage furniture. Wheelchairs. Skulls on counters. The sum effect makes Otherwise feel nearly like a haunted house at night, especially when the cafe is eerily empty & startlingly silent.
Some flourishes remain practical: Otherwise shares a space with what's a wedding photography studio & hair salon by day.
The distinctive decor supplies a more compelling, camera-ready reason to visit compared to the cheesecakes, coffee & beer - though we rather like Otherwise's banana cheesecake, featuring ripe fruit that's freshly sliced & placed on the cake on order.
