Try this cafe not just for their extensive range of food, but their effort of bringing down the stigma against the specially-abled. By bringing in an entirely deaf and mute staff in the domain of service, Cafe Echoes is breaking barriers set by speech and language. How exactly do they achieve the feat you ask? By their disabled-friendly design. To place your order, you need to write your order on a notepad, after which you press the light switch right next to your table which signals the staff that you are ready to place the order. For additional requirements like extra spoon, tissue or the bill, you have a set of placards mentioning the same, placed right on your tables. Genius, right? You must try their Chicken Lasagna,Oreo Shake, Chocolate Sundae and Fried Chicken.
