The Cafe Where Everything is Free but Time

Business Insider has an article about a new cafe in London where you pay 5 cents (3 pence) per minute to be there but you can eat or drink whatever you want while you hang out.
Next time you're in London, you could walk into the Ziferblat cafe in the fashionable Shoreditch neighborhood and grab a coffee. Perhaps you might sit down on one of the comfortable armchairs, pull out your laptop and check your emails on the Wi-Fi network. Feeling a little hungry? There's some food in the cabinet; help yourself.
How much does all this cost? Well, if you spend, say, 45 minutes there, it will cost you £1.35 (approximately $2.20).
