      Shilpa – You have to share more info to get name ideas that are relevant. If it’s a concept cafe, what’s the concept? What are some names you like of existing cafes or restaurants you’ve come across? What are some names you’ve come up with yourself and are considering?

  3. Always hungry

    Cafe des Amis is an awesome name. Warm and just hits the spot in many ways
