We ate breakfast "on top of the world!" What a treat! Relaxing to sit and take in the scenry with the meal, coffee and orange juice. Fun to feed the picas begging for food.

Who knew the food would be really, really good on top of a tram? It is. A great place for breakfast and lunch, plus they have a social hour with wine and beer.

Went there twice. In morning for hot tea. That was a conversation piece. We could hear the staff all taking about that novel order. But we got it. A tea bag & a cup of hot water. In afternoon for lunch we were ignored for...More
