The small café referred to as ‘Naan sense’ located amid searching shops and cafes run by means of male owners in the school town stands out now not handiest due to the fact of vibrant truck art painted on the outside, but also on the grounds that of the very fact that it’s the most effective café within the locality with open-air seating the place families and formative years enjoy the snacks and chit-chat until it remains open within the night.

The colorful exterior, the chairs and tables painted with funny sentences or verses from unknown men and women normally visible on trucks amuse one as one waits for the robust tea (Karak Chai) and naan (bread) which are available distinctive sweet, salty and savory fillings. Ataullah Esakhelvi’s song ‘Qamees Teri Kaali’ and Pashto tunes mainly keep the consumers calm as they wait for their hot cup of tea and naan.

Students from the tuition of Peshawar had been commonplace viewers due to the friendly youthful surroundings of the café. It has been just a few months, but Laila feels it her success that ladies despite it being a male-dominated society are coming in high-quality numbers to the café. She is planning to introduce different average food and drinks in summer season that is part of village life and now not available in eating places of the city.
