Rise and Shine Cafe -- Dayzone -- Albuquerque
The interior of Rise and Shine is a simple box filled with tables, chairs, and a few booths. A long countertop separates the dining area from the doors to the kitchen and manager's office, and also holds a cash register that appears to predate the integrated circuit by about a decade. A chair rail circles the restaurant, except where it breaks for the aforementioned doors as well as those to the two restrooms. The paint below the rail is a soothing, calm blue, with simple high gloss white above.
The decoration is also subdued, with the occasional garish knick knack hung on the wall. The designers seemed to understand that half the clientele will be hung over, forty percent will be studying for exams and just wanting to relax, 8 percent will never notice the walls, 1.9 percent will be color blind, and the rest are cops who just want the free coffee. An employee waits at the register to take orders, and a menu board hangs on the wall.
