  1. Cafe Ekante is a great concept and everything looks perfect, except the blue tables and chairs - which look out of place and does not blend into the rest of the decor. The interior designers should have considered some earthly colors / natural materials like wood / bamboo.

    3. So, when are we getting such fancy chair table arrangement?

  2. Also, in the hoarding, a website / QR code should be provided instead of a phone number that works only during certain times of the day. Most of the relevant information like hours of operation, directions / menu etc. should be made available on the website. One should be required to call only for special circumstances such as making reservations for large parties etc.
