Custom-Made Tiny Restaurant Brings The Critters To The Yard

There’s nothing quite like going out to a fancy sit-down restaurant. You get to dress up, be wined and dined, and get out of the house for a couple of hours.

Well, one man decided that he wanted his animal friends to have the same experience, especially the squirrels that were hanging out in his yard. So he made them a little café so they didn’t have to run back to their homes after grabbing a bite to eat.

Bird Feeders Are Officially Out

It’s time we stopped counting on bird feeders to cover every animal’s needs. James Vreeland decided that it was time to give the squirrels their own custom-made dining experience, creating the Maison du Noix.

Welcome To ‘The Nut House’

Maison du Noix is french for ‘The Nut House’ so it wasn’t surprising to see the neighborhood squirrels flock to Vreeland’s yard to take a seat on the tiny benches and grab a bite to eat.

There’s Something For Everyone

While the Maison de Noix is meant for the wildlife, Vreeland found his neighbors coming over to capture the fairytale that was going on in his front lawn. The café is a hit with the squirrels and bluejays specifically, and everyone appears to be loving the experience. Bon Appetit!
