Dining, sweet shop and gift shop all in one spot. The chicken salad is to die for, I get it every time I visit. The soups are homemade and are wonderful. I have not been disappointed.

Thank amoney2326
Richard O, Guest Relations Manager at Cafe Batar, responded to this review

We THANK YOU for taking the time to share your experience. Our chicken salad is a homemade secret recipe - we also sell it by the pound in our store if you would ever like to take some home. We reopen for the season March 15 and hope to see you again real soon this year! More

My sister sent me some of the wonderful cookies for my birthday in November and they arrived in excellent condition. Only 1 pumpkin had its stem broken off. She had packed them well and they arrived in Seattle in great shape. Not only are they tasty but they are beautiful. They are actually works of art and I hated to... More

It looks like you're pulling into a private residence that sits back off the highway, but I was pleasantly surprised by how tranquil the setting was. The cafe is small but very bright and comfortable. My server was fantastic! She was knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. I had chicken salad on a bed of lettuce, chips, pickle,...

Having just visited the nearby wildlife refuge this was a perfect finish. All the reviews mention of "serene garden setting, etc." do not require duplication. The food is simple and delicious and the staff and service is outstanding. The dessert menu was tempting and baked in house. Once you've eaten there, you'll want to return. And, it's only less than... More

My lady and I can always count on a great experience when we lunch at Cafe Batar. This place is situated in a beautiful wooded setting, surrounded by tall pine trees and lovely gardens.

This is a very charming local establishment tucked back in the woods. The atmosphere is great, but the food left my husband and I scratching our heads. The grilled cheese sandwich was less exciting than the ones we make at home and cost a TON more. It was cozy and cute, but because it was overpriced for basic meals, we... More

Thank you for your feedback Terri. We would have to agree with your comments regarding the grilled cheese. This item that you ordered, which is from our CHILDREN'S MENU may not be to the adult taste and portions size found on our adult menu selections. (Kids prefer smaller portions and very "plain" food.) We do hope you will give us... More

This place is a cute place tucked away in the woods that has great daily specials and awesome dessert! A nice place for a "special " lunch.

This was a special event that featured a program so everyone got the same thing to eat which featured small sandwiches and a variety of deserts. The little sausage bites were excellent and chicken salad was good. I didn't care for the egg salad and neither did the other members of my group. The deserts were all excellent. The decor... More
