The owner of the cafe has an african grey in a cage off to the side and his name is Apache. Sweetest bird ever! The food and drink are delectable as well.

Great food and relaxing setting. You are sitting in the middle of a peaceful place with birds and a waterfall nearby. You can try an island soda pop while you wait for your food. Service is quick.
