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.

• Sorry, reservations are not accepted. We seat first come first served.

Group Outings

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.

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.
