Love the view from the Aster Cafe. There is outdoor seating. If the weather doesn't cooperate, grab a seat inside. The food is good too!

We walked here from downtown and it was wonderful. We also sat outside and enjoyed the riparian entertainment. So many joggers and folks walking by the river bank. We also enjoyed the food not to forget that part. I would go back.
