Geo means Global, and the same is reflected throughout the place, the atmosphere is very European, more of a nice, small, coy café, where you would like to spend hours. They had widely spread Edison bulbs in a very modern yet trendy fashion. The place has teak wood used the most giving it a wooden furnishing.
They have an indoor as well as outdoor seating and straight ahead is the non alcoholic bar, which is loaded with almost everything under the sun.
