    Cosy restaurant, but be weary of the corner seat by the register. You may not actually get prompt service there.

    The chicken lime soup is soooo tasty! Definitely a must order during the winter (or for delivery as a hangover cure)

    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.
