is mostly subdued and simple. That goes for commercial cafe tables as well.

How do coffee house tables differ from restaurant tables?
- Materials – while restaurant tables can and are being used in coffee shops, usually coffee shops use lighter tables that are not as ornate and tend to stand out less.
- Size – coffee houses usually host small groups at a time. 2 to 4 people is the average number and tables larger than that are uncommon, especially in smaller establishments.
- Color – commonly, commercial coffee tables come in neutral colors. Black, mahogany even white or natural wood finish. It is less likely to encounter vibrant colored restaurant tables in coffee houses.
- Price – thanks to the smaller size and economical materials, coffee shop tables can be cheaper compared to solid wood tables or tables that fit larger number of diners.
