    get the yogurt drink if you're opting for something than just regular milk/green teas you can get anywhere else. Don't get food, just stuff that's microwaved.

    Usually crowded so getting a table is difficult. Packed with high schoolers. Pretty loud and dark atmosphere. Drinks and food are good though (:

    Fantastic joint for 18-under crowd (and pedophiles). However, give a man a "bar" bar, complete with some rye & Scotch.
