Kaficko is a cafe bringing carefully preserved recipes from Europe to Hyderabad city. The cafe nested in Jubilee Hills offers space for celebrating life, the European way. A clean, minimalist look was chosen for its ability to create bright interiors achieved with walls finished in white and grey thandur flooring sourced locally. Planter boxes carrying plants and succulents stand enticing like macarons on the walls in a geometricity that lends modernity to the design layout. White marble table tops with metal legs and a combination of pastel pink upholstered and wooden chairs finish off the decidedly sunny ambiance. Long boardroom tables with sofa chairs for business luncheons, bar-inspired high seats for solo diners and cocoons for a table of two proffer seating choices for indoor diners. Copper toned lighting accents spark a warm fireplace vibe. An interactive Scrabble wall places the foundation for a community nest forming the main design feature and attraction in the space. A chalkboard-inspired wall menu, wooden bookshelves and board games made from plywood convert the space into areas to eat, read and play. Kaficko can seat 60-70 and makes spaces for both indoor and outdoor seating.
