Comic Strip Café reopens with refurbished planters and new trees at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

The Comic Strip Café has reopened with minor modifications to the exterior of the buildings in the Toon Lagoon area of ​​Universal’s Island of Adventure. Our last update noted a “Pardon our dust” sign outside the restaurant. Now the cartoon planters have been renovated and new trees have been planted.

The ‘Pardon our dust’ sign remains, but a new coat of paint has been applied to the floor at the entrance and to the brick planters.

The tall palms have been replaced with what appear to be river birches. The floor has been repainted with blue and white zig-zags.

Closer to the entrance, more zig-zags of purple and red appear.

The white edges are wide enough to double as a seat.

The planters are not actually brick, but painted to look like 3D cartoon scenery.
