Cafes

Operating a café is similar to operating a restaurant. However, most cafés do not provide waitress service. Cafés hire cooks and kitchen staff as well as baristas. Those that also sell wine and other alcohol may or may not have a specialist bartender. Often cafés open early in the day to facilitate breakfast and their busiest time tends to be lunch.

The chef at a café has to devote time to putting together menus, although he may not have to worry about dinner. In some cafés brunch is a buffet. However, café owners and employees need to be highly knowledgeable about gourmet coffees and teas, including Italian coffee, and about specialties such as French and Italian desserts. Even a café often has different menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and may offer more substantial food for the latter. Bistros tend to provide more solid options for diners.

Cafés have to worry about meeting the same food safety requirements as restaurants, especially if they sell hot food. They may also need to obtain a liquor license. Cleanliness is important in all food service establishments. As most food is sold to diners within the cafe, employees need to keep the cafe area and outdoor seating and tables clean.

If the café also offers convenient catering, then they will need delivery drivers. These drivers, and café employees in general may be required to work holidays. As catering is most often desired by customers who have a special event or occasion to honor, it becomes very important for everyone involved to get things right. A wedding brunch can make or break a couple's big day.

Cafés fill two important roles, the first to provide relaxing casual dining for people who need only a light meal in a good atmosphere. The second is in the area of catering events.

"Jack's is a family run restaurant --- old school --- Son waits on the tables, Dad makes sushi and tends the bar while Mom is in the kitchen. Every time I'v gone there, I 'm treated like the family member who finally came back to visit. Genuine enthusiasm from the owner ( I'm sure his real name is not "JACK") ad his son. The food comes out in minutes and a cold bottle of Singha beer just adds to ..."

Presentation was nice and was full of flavor. We both enjoyed our night out and had a good time th ..."

Cafes offer such products and services as decatur, wine, brunch, lunch, desserts, coffee, tea, pub, tourist, Italian, French, American, Australian, champagne, holidays, special events, convenient, relaxed and banquet options. Gift certificates make great gifts, so inquire if the cafe offers them. It's recommended that you make reservations at a cafe if you are planning on eating lunch, dinner, brunch or breakfast at a peak time or during the holiday season. Since cafes are typically so small, they may not be able to accommodate too many people at a time. Many times, cafes are located in historic districts, revealing an old-world charm. Take time to stroll around the adjacent streets to discover more historic and charming sites. When choosing a cafe, consider the restaurant's background and years in business. Ask family and friends which cafes they frequent and how they rate the food and service. Sometimes the only way to get an accurate feel for a restaurant is to simply try it out. Dine at each cafe you are considering and take note of the restaurant's cleanliness, friendliness of staff and quality of service. Chat with the staff to see if they are courteous and accommodating. Try a few simple dishes to get a flavor for the cafe's fare. Inquire whether the restaurant is locally owned and operated, or part of a large chain. Take note of the cafe's menu. Are the prices fair? Are the menu items to your liking? What types of food does the cafe serve? Do you enjoy gourmet food or simple, traditional dishes? If you are interested in catering services, obtain a catering menu while there. Whether dining in or taking out, take note of the cafe's hours, location, cleanliness, service quality and food quality before choosing a cafe for your dining, decatur and wine needs.
