A visual feast

Cafe Juanita in Pasig City has to have the most eclectic decorations I have seen in any restaurant.
 decorations at Cafe Juanita Buddha in many poses, an infant Jesus, various kinds of pottery, and an intricately carved wooden lamp on a mother-of-pearl-inlay sideboard greet guests at the entrance.

decorations at Cafe JuanitaEurope and Asia are well-represented, as are all materials one can think of for knickknacks: wood, glass, crystal, clay, porcelain, cloth, metal, plastic. Every inch of wall, floor and ceiling space not used for dining or walking is covered by a bewildering array of objects both precious and chintzy.

For some reason, though, Cafe Juanita's decorations aren't overwhelming or dizzying. And for the life of me, I cannot figure out why.

It's quite a knack to pull off this kind of staging. I think she must like shopping. They say, "Buy what you like" and everything will go together. Must be true.
