Chhaya Cafe

New Restaurant
2,000 sf
Conversion of a former children's clothing store into a popular coffee/brunch restaurant

Chhaya Cafe is a beloved neighborhood spot where customers could look forward to an intimate and warm setting. When they grew out of their old space on East Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia, they hired us to design a space just as cozy, but with space to grow. Our layout takes this former children's clothing store and creates different zones in the space so that customers with varying needs--brunch seating, bar-style internet surfing, or just grab-and-go coffee--would be comfortable. The larger space has allowed Chef V to expand her menu, and Chhaya continues its reputation as the "place to be" for weekend brunch, weekday coffee meetings, and unique coffee options.
