LOUISE, located at the Thaden Fieldhouse in Bentonville, is described as “a modern all-day cafe…that serves diner-style breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.”

The restaurant faces the runway and plane parking at the Bentonville Municipal Airport, which provides great views of aircraft coming and going.

The restaurant is named after Louise Thaden of Bentonville, who was an aviation pioneer and record setter during her time. Among the records she held:
