Tabernae is an ancient term for the small shops that was common in the Roman world which was commonly situated around a domus (large house, as an atrium house. Also see the plan). These normally consisted of a small square room with all but no decorations. A number of activates could take place in these, shops and fast food restaurants were common. Notice of the desk seen in the photo above is typical.
