The Burger Cafe has opened in Calico Village. Everybody loves the building, with its stylish mixture of red bricks and cream-colored walls. When the aroma of hamburgers fills the air, everybody’s stomach starts rumbling and they all go running to the Burger Cafe! The owners Silk Cat Father Johnny, Mother Holly, and daughter Susie are always there to welcome customers. It’s a nice, relaxed place that is always busy. Silk Cat Holly is a very good designer. She designed the interior of the restaurant and the family’s Oakwood Home.
Sunshine Bear Brian reads the menu above the counter. “Fries, juice, and...should I have a cheeseburger, or veggie burger?”He just can’t decide! In the end, he decides to have both. While he’s waiting, he watches Silk Cat Johnny fry the hamburgers and add salt to the fries.
From the seats by the big window, you can always hear the girls laughing and playing.
While Silk Cat Susie is working, she often stops to chat.
There are lots of tables, and a terrace, so the Burger Cafe is popular with moms and dads as well as children.
And everybody loves the drive-thru!
When you’re driving in your car and want to quickly pick up some delicious food, you can stop at the drive-thru window.
You can order hamburgers and fries and other yummy treats from the menu.
When the restaurant first opened, they had a few problems. People weren’t used to the drive-thru window yet and nobody was very interested.
“With a drive-thru, you can order hamburgers and drinks right in your car,” explained Johnny, to the Hopscotch Rabbit family.
They decided to try it out. They ordered in the car, but when the food came they brought it into the cafe and ate it there!
Now, of course, everybody knows how to use the drive-thru, and sometimes families come simply because it’s there. These days the Burger Cafe is very busy.
One day when Silk Cat Susie comes into the cafe, she finds her father there holding a take-out bag.
“You always help out here,” he says, “so I’m giving you this as a present.”
“Thank you, Dad!” says Susie. She opens the bag, and in it is a hamburger.
“I was wondering what you liked best, and all I could think of was a hamburger,” he says.
When Susie sees the hamburger she says,
“Wow! The shape is really cute!”
It is a special hamburger, with the patty and buns shaped like a cat. She can eat it in one bite, and it tastes great!
“Thanks, Dad,” she says. “I know! Why don’t we put this on the menu, too?”
Johnny thinks that’s a great idea and adds the special burger to the menu.
All the Calico children love the special hamburger!
With great hamburgers, and always a warm welcome from Susie, the Burger Cafe is growing more popular all the time!
