The staff which works here also wondered in the starting that how would they get themselves going in a job which demands the normal functioning of all their senses. But once they got familiar with the whole process in 4-5 days, they got confident and this has become their favorite job since then to see people coming and going happily.

Here is the answer to how this all operates!

When you enter the café, a card would be shown mentioning that you are dining with differently abled staff.

Placing an order: There is a code associated with every dish on the menu. For eg. Pasta code is P1,P2 and so on. Alongside, there is a sign mentioned on the menu for the code. You can order either by gesturing the sign or by writing the code and quantity down on a paper.

How do you call a waiter? ‘Oye’, ‘Hello’, ‘Sunna bhaiya’.. Nothing of the sort works here. Here you need to press a switch placed near your seat which will turn on the light bulb to let the waiter know that what table number needs him and he will be straight there to help you.

Asking for things other than your order, the café has a notes-card with notes such as “Knife please”,“Menu”,”Bill please”,”Thank you”!

The cofounders of the café feel great the way their staff runs the place and they dream about incorporating as many as such people and building a suitable friendly environment for them. The staff is glad to do something meaningful with their lives by bringing smiles on people’s faces and the customers keep blessing these generous people for such a great initiative.
