For the past while, this was the view through the back doors at Qathra (1112 Cortelyou Road between Stratford and Westminster Roads)–but perhaps in celebration of spring after a particularly awful winter, the cafe has chosen to go a brighter way of things. We’ve seen the crew working on the yard over the past several weeks, and yesterday’s weather made it the perfect time to get a closer look.
The wood beams and fence that frame the yard are now electric blue, as are Qathra’s outdoor tables and many of the chairs. Blue and white accented seating has also been added along the perimeter of the yard, and the mural on the back wall has been expanded to two more sides of the area.
This isn’t the only recent change at the coffee shop–inside, a few standard tables for two have been swapped out with longer, taller tables and bar height stools. Assuming you haven’t given up on the cafe because of its weekend laptop policy, what do you think?
