I have been studying cafe interior design and I really like the shared table concept in a casual setting..
we shared a jet lag brunch at this one called Le Pain Quotidien in LA, and one of the cool things about sharing a table is that we got all the low down about LA from the locals at the table and we shared about Sydney.
we shared breakfast at this one in the SLS hotel in LA while spotting a couple of movie stars!
read the stools in this one they say cool stuff like "sit still", "sitting duck" etc
this Brisbane one has nice designer chairs and funny sign on top.
i love the blue and white combo of this one
