Customer Reviews

It is a unique experience, you have to go in with an open mind and be prepared for some uncomfortable sensations as well as some incredibly cool ones. It is well worth it and makes you really appreciate what you have!

Great place, Great Food, Great Music. I highly recommend the Blind Café. If you are nervous about it being in the Dark the Staff all made sure that you were relaxed and comfortable! We both enjoyed it very much and felt relaxed the whole time, even when trying food that you cant see. He used his taste sense more then I with food where I was using my hearing sense more listening to what was around me. So worth the hour and half drive, on way home we discussed using our sense and what all we enjoyed and planning on doing the music café! We talk all the time after date night, however this drive home was so much more then just talk its like we listened to each other. One thing we both learned during this dinner is how much we trust each other. Just by having a hand on the leg saying Im here. You cant see it but feel it. A must do!
