We visited this tourist place in May 2017. It has a very interesting and varied museum, as well as a large gift and tourism related shop. Meals and snacks are available, and a room for tasting and buying local products. Well worth a visit.

Good question and I'm not sure. It is pretty much a general cafe but the milkshakes are 'out of this world'!
