The next time you visit the Swedish town of Malmo, but sure to watch where you step! This is because tiny, adorable mouse cafes are popping up at a?rapid pace, and it?d be a travesty to miss the works of art.?Only those who have a keen eye and patience will find the tiny structures which are mirrored after modern businesses. From a bakery to a ?cheese and cracker shop,? there?s something to entice every mouse.

Reportedly, a mysterious street art group – appropriately named Anonymous MMX – is responsible for making the mouse cafes. The group?s Instagram page doesn?t have many photos, but it?s quickly gaining attention and already has almost 80k followers!

Approximately 1-foot by 2-foot, the storefronts are easily missed if one doesn?t know they exist. And far from just looking cute, they actually offer neighborhood scavengers delicacies, such as nuts and cheeses.

What might be most impressive about the mass cafes is the detail put into each work of art. A representative of Anonymouse MMX told The Huffington Post:

?It?s just too darn charming to imagine a world where mice lives parallel to ours but just slightly out of sight.?

?They are built of things that we had laying around and also things we collected, like caps, lids from tin cans, matches, buttons, a lamp shade, Italian stamps etc.,? the representative added. ?The idea was to use things mice themselves could have collected and reused.?

ENGLISH BELOW. Invigningen av restaurangen Il Topolino mottes av ett nagot storre tryck an beraknat. Det var kul men lamnade ett visst slitage pa lokalerna, sa under kvallen valde vi att halla stangt for lattare renovering. (det kan ha funnits en incident med en kock och daligt dragna ledningar). Men nu ar vi ater pa plats igen och valkomnar lagom till frukosten. ###### The grand opening of Il topolino was met with a slightly larger interest than anticipated. Its been good fun by also resulted in a bit of a wear on the inventory, so this afternoon we were forced to shut down temporarely (there might have been an incident with a chef and some loose wiring). Anyways, we're back again, just in time for breakfast! Cheese out! #anonymouse
