Our New Venue!
Welcome to Muscatatuck Hall. Batar is thrilled to offer more of what you love. Click here to learn more about our new events facility.

Relax. You'll feel it happening when you first arrive and hear the songbirds greeting you on your wooded walk to our front door. Enjoy three ways to experience Batar...

1. Cafe Batar. Come inside, sit back and enjoy a cool iced tea. Satisfy your appetite with our luncheon menu offering freshly made hot and cold sandwiches, homemade soups, chicken wraps, our popular Fruit Salad Plate and weekly specials. Dessert? Cafe Batar entices you with home-baked cobblers, cakes and seasonal specials. Top it off with freshly brewed gourmet coffee or tea.  MENU

2. Shop Batar. After you enjoy lunch be sure to shop Batar featuring gifts to give, or something special for yourself. We have an expansive jewelry line, wonderful new gift items including Jewelry Candles, and over 25 flavors of hot and cold teas. We are always looking for unique items to share with you so come back often to see what's new!

3. Sweet Batar. Red Velvet Whoopee Pies and award-winning William Dean Chocolates are guests' favorites. Our hand-decorated sugar cookies and Completely Edible Cookie Boxes are one-of-a-kind, and perfect for special occasions. Fresh-baked classics like Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodles, and Brownies are offered daily. See the Sweets!

Exclusively at Sweet Batar: William Dean Chocolates! The famous chocolates that appeared in the hit movies THE HUNGER GAMES and CATCHING FIRE

These are the award-winning William Dean chocolates that appeared in both movies, and Sweet Batar is the only place in southern Indiana where you can actually try them. See our BAKERY page for a complete list of all 15 William Dean flavors - available exclusively at Sweet Batar.

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

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.

• Open 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m - Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 
• Sorry, reservations are not accepted. We seat first come first served.
• Groups of 9 or more will be seated at separate tables. (Sorry, we don't push tables together. With round tables, it just doesn't work.)

Group Outings
See GROUPS at the top of the 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.

Thank You!

I am so excited to see that you are opening March 13th. After the winter we've had I am ready for some "BATAR!"

My sister and I came back today from Ohio for a visit to our favorite place to eat, shop and look and just hang and if you have never come here you MUST. The staff is great and so helpful and the owners are just down right the nicest people you will ever meet. I have brought my church group here and hopefully one day all my granddaughters. I just wish I lived closer. Please give this place a try it is a place I NEVER worry about paying for my trip because the staff and owner go beyond 110% to please you. And that makes you happy in a lot of ways. And if you are not in the Christmas mood you will soon get into it. This spot will be in Heaven as the only spot to eat at.
