Relax. You'll feel it happening when you first arrive. It starts the moment you hear the songbirds greeting you, and enjoy the short garden walk to our front doors. Once inside, enjoy three ways to experience Batar...

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

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!

Sweet Batar. Red Velvet Whoopee Pies and gooey Turtle Bars are becoming guests' favorites. Our "hand-painted" sugar cookies and Cookie Boxes are one-of-a-kind, and perfect for special occasions. Fresh baked cookie classics like Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodles, and Butter Cookies are offered daily. See the Sweets!

Sweet Batar's William Dean Chocolates Appear in Hit Movies; 

These are the famous 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 SWEETS 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.

THANKSGIVING: Closed Thursday. OPEN Friday and Saturday.
CHRISTMAS: We close for the season on Saturday, December 12. We re-open for the season mid March, 2016. Watch this site for specific date.

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.
