While visiting in the area, I needed a nice place to sit and work on the computer. I am an online instructor for a college and must attend to my classes. I chose Birdman’s because they advertise Wi-Fi.

The young ladies who waited on me were very nice and polite. I ordered 3 cups of coffee for $1.50 each.....I ordered a muffin for $2.00, a cookie for $2.00, and a glass of orange juice for about 2.00. I was charged $5.00 for using the Wi-Fi.......so I spent about $16.00 in the space of 4 or 5 hours...... (not bad, but never heard of an internet cafe charging for Wi-Fi.....).Still I was intending on returning later in the week.

I do not know the owner of this establishment......However; the older lady--that had been in the back cooking cookies--was extremely rude. When I went up to the counter to order the third cup of coffee....she made a comment that I had been there an unusual amount of time. I was very shocked at her comment but before I could respond another customer came in so I did not say anything. When he left I asked her if she had a problem with the fact that I had been there for a while. She said that 2 hours seemed long enough to be allowed to sit and use the electricity... she said that she did not make money on internet users. I responded that I did not see a sign placing a time limit on the use of the internet....plus I paid $5.00 for that use! I explained to her that I had intended upon returning but that I did not have to give her my business. She said that was my choice. I packed up my laptop and left.

The food was good and the prices not too bad, however, a cafe should not advertise Wi-Fi if they do not want you to use it; (there were always at least 8 empty tables while I was there, so I did not cost her any business...).

I have never written a review for a business before, but I feel the need to let the public know what a poor choice it is to patronize Birdman's! How sad! The building and atmosphere are pleasant and shows major potential. What a shame the lady has no couth or business sense.

We travel alot around the state and near by states to visit the area and eat. We research the area on the web and the comment made by Teedaisy44 is very interesting. Don't think we will be visiting BirdMan Coffee & Books. Thanks.
