The café is a place where visitors can relax and enjoy the exhibits while also gazing out at the peak of Mt. Nagi. Various works can be seen in the foreground, while Mt. Nagi is used as a sort of "Borrowed Scenery" in the background.
Also nearby is La gita, which serves authentic Neapolitan pizza and pasta, and Café Calme, which is attached to a rental gallery and offers baked goods and coffee.
