On the way to Mysore we stopped at a roadside café that had clearly opened that very same day. This offering had been made to the gods to ensure good luck with the business. 

The owners had clearly decided to cash in on the popularity of the Café Coffee Day chain and had closely modelled the appearance of the place on the Coffee Day cafés, only missing one very important point: staff training. The staff of all the Coffee Day cafés I entered during this visit were always efficient and courteous, whereas at this imitation place the service was late and they didn't know how to operate the cash register. The coffee, however, was okay.
