This cafe is a nice place to eat outside, but unfortunately the restaurant closed rather early (around 9 pm).

In the middle of the forests near a small quiet town we found this surprising place. Nice and warm atmosphere, good food and fine beer. Just when you need as a stop to 'recharge' during a day of hiking or touring the area.
