Coffee in the LEGO universe is extremely overpriced, but in our reality, Chris Pratt and Tiffany Haddish will just give you hot bean water, no strings attached. You heard that right.

To celebrate the upcoming release of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, the two celebrities served free refreshments today at a pop-up shop in London known as "The Coffee Chain," an uber expensive establishment seen in the first film.

The cafe itself — which contains a LEGO coffee machine, donuts, and your morning paper — is made up of almost 50,000 LEGOs, taking six builders and over 230 hours to construct. 

The two-day event is being held at Observation Point on London’s South Bank. Today (Friday, Feb. 1), it runs from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.; tomorrow (Saturday, Feb. 2), it will run from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. In addition to the beverages, visitors are enjoying unique photo opportunities, meeting costumed characters, and winning prizes.

While all products will be free, the event is also meant to raise awareness for UNICEF U.K. As such, visitors are encouraged to donate a small amount to the charity, which isn't such a big ask when you're being served free coffee and other refreshments from two of the biggest celebrities on the planet.

Pratt reprises his role as the happy-go-lucky Emmett Brickowski, while Haddish joins the cast as Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi, a shapeshifting member of the Systar System. The cast also includes Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Charlie Day, Maya Rudolph, Stephanie Beatriz, and more.

Written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (they directed the first one) and directed by Mike Mitchell, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part opens in theaters Feb. 8. Early reviews have been very positive thus far, assuring fans that the sequel is just as entertaining and innovative as its predecessor.
