Pika's Cafe proudly unveiled their new mural created by local artist John Bermudes on Thursday, January 16, 2020. John, a long time fan and regular at Pika's Cafe, had a great grasp of the vibe of Pika's - local, fresh and family-oriented. After finalizing the design and the "Eat Local." motto, John worked diligently on the piece almost daily for a month.
The floor to ceiling mural, which sits right outside of the Pika's Cafe entrance, is highly visible and prominent, a proclamation of the Pika's Cafe ethos. It's already becoming a popular spot for photos for locals and visitors alike. Come by and check it out in person!
