    Very casual eatery. Vegetable udon was very large and good for a cold day. Not the best I've had, but it was still pretty good and they didn't skimp on the vegetables.

    The bubble tea is not like normal Korean tea- its bubble in a fruit juice.

    The salty oat cookies are deliciously filling. Also, the grilled salmon entree is great, but it comes in a curry sauce, so prepare yourself!

    Decent breakfast selection- the sausage and flatbread were good, but the raita was bland with a weird aftertaste.

    Was excited about the French toast until I opened the to go container. Edges were burned and was soggy from all the apples and juice underneath. Apples are great touch but package them separately.

    Their chai is great--it's not overly sweet, and it has a bit of a spicy bite to it. I've never been disappointed by anything on the menu, either.
