The restaurant is well decorated with wooden tables and chairs, white walls with old possibly antique kitchen knick knacks, cake stands with covers and long white hanging lamps. It makes for an adorable dining spot and attracts regular patrons. The main USP at this restaurant is that they hire hearing and speech impaired staff and they take your order in sign language.
