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.

Basically, they are lazy and want you to make yourself a salad. Looks awful / appetite gone.

Kris Canty

Because getting everything in a glass upside down, balancing all the onions, making sure the shotglass of vinaigrette stays separated and plating it nicely is so much more lazy than tossing it in a bowl...If they were lazy they'd do it normal, it's just art you don't like.
