Café La Siesta


Restaurants & Cafés


A year after it opened, Cafe La Siesta hosted a performance by a musician who used vintage computer games as part of his act. The games proved so popular that retro gaming became the new attraction. You can now sip a Bonus Stage or One-up cocktail as you battle eight-bit enemies on the vintage Nintendo or try to recall some death moves at the full-size Streetfighter machine. The food is surprisingly good, and there are plenty of vegetarian options on the menu.
