Anonymouse activists are setting up adorable, tiny structures for mice to take snacks from in the city of Malmö, Sweden.
The next time you visit the Swedish town of Malmö, 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.”
The group promises to expand the number of mouse cafes in the future. For now, follow the artists’ Instagram page and indulge in the photos below:
Noix and il topolino at dusk. Thank you soooo much for the new likes and followers! It means the world to us!

ENGLISH BELOW. Invigningen av restaurangen Il Topolino möttes av ett något större tryck än beräknat. Det var kul men lämnade ett visst slitage på lokalerna, så under kvällen valde vi att hålla stängt för lättare renovering. (det kan ha funnits en incident med en kock och dåligt dragna ledningar). Men nu är vi åter på plats igen och välkomnar 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
