I am pretty sure they had that name well before Al Qaeda. Was just still a bit odd they hadn't bothered changing name at the time given the similarities.
The sign has however since been taken down and the shop rebranded.

We do however still have an Isis Cafe .... named after the Egyptian goddess. Need to remember to go take a pic of their signboard.

Fine b&w processing, Dayo!
It emphasizes the age of the signboard.

Perhaps in that language both words have very different meanings.
