Miniature cafes providing warmth and caffeine for mice have appeared on the streets of a Swedish town.

Two of the tiny businesses - a bakery and a cheese shop - have popped up in basement windows in in the city of Malmo.

While they seem to have appeared as if by magic, the 70x30cm stores are actually the creation of organisation 'Anonymouse'. Their identities are unknown, but their Instagram page has almost 14,000 followers.

On the page, Anonymouse advises their followers to "expect cheese" - a play on the Anonymous activist group's catchphrase, "expect us".

"It's just too darn charming to imagine a world where mice lives parallel to ours but just slightly out of sight [sic]," one representative of Anonymouse told The Huffington Post.

"They are built of things that we had laying around and also things we collected, like caps, lids from tin cans, matches, buttons, a lamp shade, Italian stamps etc.

"The idea was to use things mice themselves could have collected and reused."

Members of the public have gotten involved, adding small details like mouse-themed movie posters to the scenes.

Anonymouse has plans to open more cafes across the city. Meanwhile, the mice of Malmo will be relieved to have a romantic dining spot at long last.
