    Don't fear! The sugar for your coffee is in the unmarked hot sauce bottle. :) Also, the staff is super friendly, and free Wi-Fi is available. Sadly, the wifi signal is very spotty.

    Diet sized portions. Just enough to satisfy my craving for comfort food - steak and eggs plus hash browns (see pic) - and not ruin my medically-ordered diet.
