The whole hipster concept has become so popular these days, even restaurants are trying to do it. Unfortunately, being hipster isn't that easy and just one thing gone wrong can make you easily go from hipster to complete disaster.

Below, Bored Panda has put together a list of hipster restaurants that went way too far with food serving. From serving food in a shoe to serving coffee in a carrot - some of these "hipster" ideas are so ridiculous, it's hilarious! Keep on scrolling to take a look and don't forget to vote for your favorites.

I really love this one - the only way it could be better is if you wore the flamingo as a hat with a couple of lightbulbs hanging down at each side - like a beer pong hat, though way more stupid.
