    Leela's is a prime spot for a coffee after a show or to kill some time waiting for your train. Although a bit on the seedy side, the coffee is great, the food is good, and the patrons are eclectic.

    Everything here-- breakfast, lunch etc is officially served with greasy potatoes,.. But off the record, you can ask for a delicious salad with lemon pepper dressing or fresh fruit.
