| The Cloud-Nine Cache is prefaced with a somewhat minimalistic storefront in the style of sleek cyber-cafe in only the way that only the denizens of the marvelous Labs City truly can afford. Great black metallic beams are spanned with semi-tinted and semi-mirrored glass. The cafe's sign is fashioned in shiny silver-colored metal; proudly declaring 'Cloud-Nine Cache' and then, in smaller but still legible letters beneath that- 'Cafe & Tradeshop'. The door opens with a pulling motion once a hand has been placed on the sleek metallic bar; and a tiny 'tinkle' noise from a small strand of bells on a leather strap hanging on the door sounds to alert the purveyor to your presence.|
Directly in front of the front door is a black cloth and straw-woven Welcome mat, and beyond that is the first set of seating. In the main entrance is lined two long wooden tables, with several sets of wrought iron twisted seats, with soft black crushed-velvet backing and seat padding. These tables have docks for the charging of WATTS, and a small public access code for the WATT network. There are several clean disposable Menus placed on the pristine tables.
[Please Check Here for the Official Menu. Note that prices are Roleplayed Only. A Small Handful of credits is around 6 Credits for this amenity's purposes.]
Most of the offerings are various hot and cold drinks, typically coffee- as well as various versions of light finger foods. The special of the Day changes with the seasons and days of the week; among the offerings are various dishes inspired by or derived from different cultures around Pethia in Celebration of the varied populace of the Labs City.
There is a traditional bar along the left side of the Main Entrance; with matching walnut and cherry woods showing a lovely triangular pattern. The stools here match the seats in the main seating area for the Cyber Cafe portion of the shop, all twisted black metal, but these have a more traditional wooden top, in dark walnut and red-stained cherry facades. Behind this bar works one of the purveyor's assistants or the journeyman that work under him.
[There are currently three; they will be described here eventually. Please refrain from roleplaying them.]
The staff are always cordial and polite when taking orders, and generally unobtrusive with visitors; who are mostly here to take advantage of the more illustrious offerings of the Cloud-Nine Cache.
Beyond the main room, through another set of glass doors, is the main attraction of the Catseye Cache; The Rainbow Ribbon Room. Here, people can 'hang out' in an area with limited contact with Orbaru-Crossed Halfbreeds. Some of them are more interested in being touched than others, and all of them are given a chance to stay away from people if they so wish. Sometimes the space is rented out by Art Students or Writers- since the space is much more suited to quiet activities. There are more docks for WATTs here, and people can purchase treats to feed the more brave orbaru crosses that live here.
The entire room is covered in an easy-to-clean plush black carpet with a whimsical starry design. The walls are covered in rainbow-colored shelves that are made for the lighter crosses to climb on. There are various holes artfully built into the walls to allow the crosses some privacy. In the corners are large ultra-plush beanbags in the shape of clouds and stars. Various rugs are strewn about in a purposeful way; these generally are in rainbow colors. People are expected to sit on the beanbags or rugs here, and a very limited menu with foods that are generally not messy is available here.
The ceiling here is painted with a beautiful starscape of the milky-way, complete with glowing constellations here and there. It is easy to get lost in the beauty of this work; a wonderful artist must have been employed to paint it.
A single service desk is located in the back here, with staff there mostly to watch the creatures. This staff serves the limited menu for the cross area, as well as the treats for the crosses. In addition; the Prize Pool is also housed here! If conditions are met (you may fill out a form), you can earn fabulous prizes that are crafted by the resident Craftsman and the Journeymen here, as well as various popular companies.

There is yet another door, beyond the area where the crosses are housed. This great walnut door opens to a small mudroom with yet another walnut door that will only open if that door is shut; and if the correct code is put in. This final room is a great workshop; where an excellent Craftsman (Renathan) runs a small metal workshop out of. This is where the prizes offered by the Cloud-Nine Cache are produced for the people that earn them! No customer gets to see this area, but it is rumored that Renathan keeps his shop extremely clean, as he ensures cleanliness for the entire premises.
