“They can't see in, but you can see out!”

The World's only functional glass bathroom for public use. Built with one-way mirrors. You can't see in, but while you are taking care of business, you can see out!

Clean, air conditioned, and entertaining! The bathrooms are located on the cute town square, which has shops, restaurants, water fountain, chess, checkers, and (since it was Saturday) a farmers market. We ate at the corner Cajun restaurant: the catfish was flavorful and the fried pickles some of the best we've had. As for the glass bathroom, it was fun pretending to look in (the glass is impossible to see through on the outside) to make the user as uncomfortable as possible. If you get stage fright though, there is a bathroom with opaque walls at Plain and Fancy Sandwiches. Fun stop!

Great friendly town. We all used the bathroom and it was very cool. We stayed for about an hour. My kids played in the water fountain, bring an extra set of clothes. They had a chess and checkers game. There was a nice memorial for servicemen and a place you can dispose of your torn US flags. We stopped and ate a the coffee shop off the square, yummy and friendly.

Worth stopping! Cute little town, with a great coffee shop on the corner too! Definitely hard to actually go to the bathroom ;)

My family was skeptical of making this stop (husband, 16 & 13 yr old) but they all agreed that it was interesting and a “weird” experience to use the bathroom with people milling about. The town square was quite busy but no one seemed to be paying attention. It’s not marked or clear that they are bathrooms so I wondered if anyone even knew. You open the door and walk in kind feeling like is it’s some secret portal. I found it amusing and I’m glad we all stopped. The downtown was charming too. It was worth bypassing all the bathroom stops just to use this bathroom.

Great bathroom stop! The see-through bathrooms are a cool experience and are located right in the middle of a super cute town square with a Veterans memorial and plenty of grass for the kids to run around and stretch their legs.
