We are a family committed to serving healthy, sustainable, and delicious food to everyone. Wally opened Autobahn Cafe in 2010, an lovingly handed it over to Felipe in October 2013. Although Wally has retired from this cafe that she lovingly created, its traditional foundation has not changed. Her beautiful legacy is seen in the menu, the smiles of her highly trained staff, and the welcoming atmosphere. Felipe and his wife Diana honor this so much that they are being very careful and gradual about expanding all the best that Autobahn Cafe has to offer. Felipe started out thinking he wanted to go into the sustainable farming business. To pay for school he began working at a restaurant and something clicked, magic, chemistry, love, call it what you like, but Felipe found his passion in lovingly preparing food for guests. Over the last 15 years he has explored and learned this art at every opportunity. While he was head chef at Milano Restaurant ( near the Grand Lake ) he pushed limits and perfected unique Italian recipes. Before there were TV shows about it, Felipe quietly explored ingredients and food preparation around the world. He has cooked alligator, ostrich, buffalo, and a snake appetizer-Indonesian style.
