Nice little cafe! Check out their website, apparently some coffee/cafe has been there for ages. Below are all the pictures of the trip. I met with Leah and Kyle, the plan was to go somewhere else but they were closed so I pulled this trip out of my hat. It was a straight shot from KMIC and very uneventful flight, some chop at 4500 and below, smooth above. Beautiful spring day. At the end of the flight, KMIC Tower gladly let us come up for a quick tour, pretty cool to see ATC work! I appreciate ATC and what they do for our Airspace System, it is nice to put a name with a voice.
Direct Routing, many VFR Targets but no factor.
Cafe was packed! We had to wait for a table. There are so many regulars at this place. Everyone knows Kimmy!
I’m guessing you flew here for all-day breakfast. We did! Beware, this cafe is closed around 2-3pm.
Heading back home, look at all this traffic!
