Gardens
Take a leisurely stroll through our gardens that adjoin one of the area's top tourist attractions: the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge.


Sharing
Our lunches are proudly served on vintage Wedgwood Countryside Blue China. Some pieces show signs of wear but that's okay because just like people, age adds character. Besides, they were made to be used, and we love sharing them with our friends.








Hours:
• Open 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m - Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 
• Sorry, reservations are not accepted. We seat first come first served.

Group Outings
See GROUPS (at the top of this page) for details.

Rules of Relaxation
• No cell phone conversations anywhere inside the Cafe or retail Shop (texting, taking/sharing photos is okay). Our goal is to provide a calm, quiet place that allows people to relax for a short time in their busy lives. Your cooperation is appreciated. Violators will be covered in strawberry glaze and tied down to an ant hill.
• Food made or purchased outside of Cafe Batar may NOT be brought inside - including birthday cakes. (Sorry, health regulations!)

So, what does 'BATAR' mean, anyway?
Batar is a combination of three things:
1. "BA" is from Barbara. One of Batar's founders.
2. "TA" is from Tammy. The other Batar founder.
3. "R" stands for the REST of us. It's for all the other people behind the scenes that make this place what it is.
