Garden Lifestyle Store & Cafe, The Curve

I noticed that recently there are many restaurant started to invest more budget into the restaurant's furnishing besides of the recipe venture as well as the workers recruitment. Dining at a cozy place is always my choice if I got an option to choose from. Of course, cozy place doesn't mean pricy! Don't you agree with me?
