Well, this place does have nice staff, but it ends there. Breakfast quiche? Originally frozen and still cold in the middle. Soggy and I know it wasn't just me, other reviewers at other websites said the same thing. Also, diners at the other table had...More

Great place to pop in with friends. Enjoy the service, food and the coffee! It's a nice break from all the shaved ice places! And a break from exploring.

A nice simple place to stop to get some Lavender Tea. Be warned that it may take some time for them to make the tea. (It took about 25 minutes) I think someone had to go pick the Lavender. While we didn't get any food,...More
