Update: Comics, Air Conditioner, Ventilation, Waiters, etc...

Hi friends,

A few updates from the cafe:

1. We got a new batch of comics on Friday so don't miss those when you are in the cafe next!

2. We spoke with one of our customers who is an A/C specialist. Thanks to him (Pravin Prakash) we have one of the A/Cs working and the other should be working soon :-)

3. We also had a chat with Pravin about the ventilation problem and he has suggested a few changes. The main change is putting a partition and isolating the kitchen (and hence the heat it generates). This will enable the chimney and the exhaust to work more efficiently. However an open kitchen is one of the charms of the cafe so we will try to preserve it by using as much glass as possible for the partition. We plan to work on this item sometime in April as soon as the budget allows us to do so.

4. We too have felt that our waiters are sometimes clueless! But beleive us, it is very very hard to get a good, English speaking waiter at the salary we can afford. Anyway, we will continue our search but in case any of you come across someone who is interested in the job then do let us know.

We are "Cafe Terra" now!

H folks,

We have been meaning to change the name for quite some time. Finally we got off our butts and did it. The name Cafe Terra had been on cards for quite some time. We wanted the new name to convey that the cafe brought a number of eclectic recipes around the world under one roof. We also wanted the name to sound cool and unusual. Hence "Cafe Terra" - since Terra means Earth.

Before you ask - let's tell you that all good things will continue to be there. You will continue to find our personal involvement, the "neighborhood cafe" feel, and excellent dishes. And yes, Waffles are not going anywhere :-)

We bought the place!

Hi folks! Many of you may know that we had 3 months to prove ourselves and turn the place around. Now that we have done that, we have decided to take over the cafe and we are here to stay :-) Looking forward to seeing many of you at the cafe! - Ranjeet and Riad

Cafe' poster

Here are the details about the cafe' De Lekkerbek, and a location map. Cool poster, ain't it? Thanks Indyslim from St. Louis for putting in sleepless nights to get this done in a hurry!

We've decided to close on Mondays, btw, to get a break after the crazy weekends.
