ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The newest cafe in downtown St. Petersburg feels like you're walking into a comic book.

2D Cafe is a black and white two-dimensional cafe and it's one big optical illusion.

"When you walk in, it's a trickery of the eye. All the schematics are black and white, and everything in the cafe will appear flat," said Alexandra Campbell, general manager. "It feels like you're in a comic book. And we want you as the patron, and the food, to 'be the art,' which is our slogan."

Campbell hand-painted all the furniture and local artist Chad Mize painted the walls. The immersive dining experience combines delicious food and an art exhibit, which makes for a fun photo opportunity.

The menu consists of coffee, avocado toast, empanadas, croissants, muffins, sandwiches, salads, and more.
