    Having an interview in a cafe is fairly common for shops that don't have much space off the shop floor, or if the space they do have is unsafe for random people to enter (either due to dangers of machinery, or cash security as you'll see the location of the safe etc). So in itself, the interview being in a cafe is nothing to worry about.

    I've been in this situation before and was really anxious for a few days before hand.Turned out they just wanted to ask for which hours i could do, when i could start etc and in the end didnt accept me cuz i had no experience. A bit pointless really- they should have read my CV.

    I dont know how it'll go for you but i'd just say look confident and speak up (unlike what i did :/). I'm guessing if its a local cafe it most likely wont be a proper interview.
