The menu offers chai teas and coffees, as well as a variety of delicacies – including biriyani, kebabs and desserts.

But unlike in other cafes, punters can pay for their morning latte using the completely digital currency.

Tayyab will accept the classic Bitcoin as well as Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, XRP, Verge, Litecoin and Horizen.

Cryptocurrencies and decentralised finance tokens can be extremely volatile, so your cash can go down as well as up in the blink of an eye.

Investing is not a guaranteed way to make money, so make sure you know the risks and can afford to lose the money.

Speaking to The Sun, Tayaab said: “I honestly believed that crypto is the future, and this is the way that it will be going forward.
